From the very first one of the chapters that spawned numerous films of Batman, it is one of the best action film with a star – studded cast.

Generally exciting and fun in this cheesy action film that it has got a fantastic cast, the main two lead got chemistry and that work really well, Dennis Hopper is certainly terrifying as the villain and it is such a shame that he died as he is brilliant. The film in whole is definitely memorable and it is well casted.

1.Daylight

Disaster in a New York tunnel as explosions collapse both ends of it. Our hero tries to help the people inside find their way to safety.
