One thought on “Article: Top 10 Action Movies

  1. Catching up on my emails and I can see you have been busy with different postings. Some great picks again Mark, and I think these are worth considering in the action category:
    Mission Impossible, Lethal Weapon, Indiana Jones are all series full of action
    The Seven Samurai and even the Magnificent Seven which was a US remake of the original Japanese film.
    The World War II movies are almost a forgotten genre but there are still some great examples of action films. Where Eagles Dare is one that immediately springs to mind.
