Top Ten 80's Action MoviesTop Ten 80's Action Movies
Non-action movies are a disease, meet the cure. What's the matter, CIA got you pushing too many pencils?

Death Wish 310. Death Wish 3
If only for the unintentionally hilarious factor, that and the fact that Bronson uses this fucking huge gun to "clean the streets."
Paul Kersey, on a visit to old Korean war buddy after he is attacked in his own home, realises that the shitty neighbourhood his pal lives in is full of punks and hoods. So, like any normal level headed chap, he decides to shoot everyone dead. So much for neighbourhood watch committees. Directed by Micheal Winner and very obviously filmed in England, the body count is insane.

Rambo : First Blood Part 29. Rambo : First Blood Part 2
Stallone returns as John Rambo. This time, he has a heart and he falls in love in record time with the first woman he sees, which careful viewers will also notice in the latest installment.
Anyway, this time he has to go and search for POW's in Vietnam and is double crossed by his own government. So, he blows everyone up and then shoots a giant computer from the past.

Remo : Unarmed and Dangerous8. Remo : Unarmed and Dangerous
Fred Ward really is the daddy. He has done some awesome films, Tremors, Escape from Alcatraz, Miami Blues, Naked Gun 33 1/3 : The Final Insult, Big Business and The Right Stuff. But nothing can compare to Remo : Unarmed and Dangerous. Presumed dead, Sam Makin is given a new identity as a secret agent/killing machine called Remo Williams (Named after a bedpan in his hospital room) and trained by Chiun, who is one mean killing machine who can dodge bullets and walk on water. He is also a white guy pretending to buy a Chinese person. Soon, Remo is ready to test his skills against a man with a gun...

The Terminator7. The Terminator
Supreme film which spawned sequels and careers. It also started that trend for having laser sights on pistols in films. It seemed to be the norm after this. I liked it that The Terminator killed Mr. Flutterman from Gremlins in the gun shop, what a bad year Mr. F had. First he was raped by a gremlin, then he was shot by a robot. That funeral must have sucked.

American Ninja 2 : The Confrontation6. American Ninja 2 : The Confrontation
1987 was an amazing year for film - a highlight being Superman 4: The Quest for Peace. But, even better was the return of Sgt. Joe Armstrong, the American Ninja and Sgt. Curtis Jackson, the other one. They really hand people their ass on a plate of pain. They are also really smooth with the ladies and doubtless get laid more than a table at the Savoy.

Commando5. Commando
A fine example of a barkingly mad and insane 80's action film. Schwarzenegger steps up to the plate for his first leading role. He seems to really enjoy saying some cracking lines like, "I eat Green Beret's for breakfast, and right now I am very hungry." Vernon Wells seriously camps it up as Bennett, evil brother of Lenny Bennett.

Lethal Weapon4. Lethal Weapon
The best buddy movie of the 80's. A great example of how Mel Gibson can be great if he isn't insulting jews, making up history or knowing what women think and not exploiting it. Riggs and Murtaugh really light up the screen and follow this superb film with a fantastic sequel and 2 poo ones.

Robocop3. Robocop
I saw this film when I was 10, on the same night as I saw Predator. I thought Robocop was amazing. It was just so different to anything that had been made before or after. The violence was so graphic that it almost falls into slapstick and the humour is just so dark and at times, hilarious. Peter Weller really sells the suit and everything about this film really sets it apart from anything else.

Predator2. Predator
This, in my opinion, is Schwarzenegger's best film. It is also one of the best (and probably last) examples of steroid and beefcake camaraderie. The legend goes that Arnold and the rest in the cast had daily work out contests to see who could get the most pumped. The close ups of Dutch and Dillon's muscles is a close up you will never see in modern film again, same probably goes for the topless tree wrangling.


Die Hard1. Die Hard
This film changed actions films forever. It was no longer about buddy movies or witty exchanges. It was one man against the lot. Taking them down one by one, after this film, every hero was the same. It all became "Die Hard on a boat" "Die Hard in a sports stadium" "Die Hard on a plane" or "Die Hard in an airport" which admittedly was Die Hard 2. Alan Rickman does a great turn as the evil Hans Gruber, the grandson of Lieutenant Gruber from Allo Allo. They must have been related.

Anyway, I pick this film just because it is one of those perfect films that you can watch over and over again for years without feeling ill. Much like the top 5 in this list, a classic.

Yes, you are probably right to mention Aliens, and what a fuck up that is about leaving it off. But then again, is it better than Remo?

Although you are correct to mention the absense of Aliens, it was decided that it was more Sci-Fi than Action. Ask my brother Tony.
