December 1st, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Action is my #1 favorite genre when i watch movie. Beside it’s entertaining, action movies sometimes amazes me to how the director made the movie. Sometimes it can inspire us to think out of the box. From all action movies i ever watched, some movie is really really cool. I never bored watching these movie over and over. I consider several point when i see action movie. The action movie i like usually doesn’t always filled with full of action but there several scene can amazed me couple of times in the movie. Beside the list below, i also have have separate list that for me still can be categorized as action movie. They are Superhero Movies and Kungfu Movies.

Note : This List is updated periodically. Just bookmarked this page for further view

Here the list of my most favorite movie all the time which is for me extremely the best :

Die Hard

The first Die Hard film directed by John McTiernan and created based on a 1979 novel by Roderick Thorp titled Nothing Lasts Forever. The film stars Bruce Willis as NYPD officer named John McClane. John have a problem with his marriage, but he is one of the best cop officer in his country. In this movie he trapped in a building that been choosen as target of terrorism attack lead by Hans Gruber. The most amazing thing in this movie is how tough John McClane is. Like the title, it’s very hard to die for John McClane. He can defeat all the terorrist all by himself. This movie is a classic action movie, but still one of the best.

Die Hard With Vengeance (Die Hard 3)

The third entry in the Die Hard series. It was produced and directed by John McTiernan (who directed the first film), and still stars Bruce Willis as NYPD detective John McClane. This time McClane accompanied by Zeus Carver as his reluctant partner. The story of this movie have correlation with the story of the first film. In this movie, McClane must face Simon Peter Gruber, brother of Hans Grubber (the main villain in the first movie). The story starts with bomb explosion at the Bonwit Teller department store. Not long after that, a man calling himself “Simon” phones the police station and claims responsibility for the bomb. He orders suspended police officer Lt. John McClane to follow his order.

Live Free or Die Hard (Die Hard 4.0)

This is my most favorite action movie all the time. Live Free or Die Hard (released as Die Hard 4.0 outside North America), is the fourth installment in the Die Hard series. The film was directed by Len Wiseman and still stars Bruce Willis as John McClane. The main plot finds McClane fighting a gang of cyber terrorists who plan to hack FBI computers. The film was based on the 1997 article “A Farewell to Arms” written for Wired magazine by John Carlin. This time, the terrorist attack the whole structure (utilities, financial, traffics, power, etc) in a country. The movie is the combination of computer hacking and terrorism attack. But it’s seem doesn’t enough to beat a man called John McClane.


This is one of the best Arnold Schwarzenegger movies of all time. I can believe that this film is 1984 movie. This is also one of the best masterpiece works by James Cameroon before he makes Alien series, Titanic and Avatar. In this film Arnold become a cyborg that come from the future. He is sent on a deadly mission. He has to kill Sarah Connor, a young woman whose life will have a great significance in years to come. Sarah has only one protector , Kyle Reese – also sent from the future. The Terminator uses his exceptional intelligence and strength to find Sarah, but is there any way to stop the seemingly indestructible cyborg ?

Terminator 2 : Judgement Day

The sequel of first Terminator movie and become the last Terminator movie that was directly directed by James Cameroon. This movie continue the story from the first film. Unlike the first movie, this time Arnold Schwarzenegger become the good guy. Nearly 10 years have passed since Sarah Connor was targeted for termination by a cyborg from the future. Now her son, John, the future leader of the resistance, is the target for a newer, more deadly terminator. Once again, the resistance has managed to send a protector (Arnold Schwarzenegger) back to attempt to save John and his mother Sarah. The enemy cyborg in this movie far more superior than the cyborg in the first film. The cyborg can transform into different people and can transform into liquid object.

The Terminator 3 :

The third film of Terminator series that was still written by James Cameroon. But it was directed by Jonathan Moscow. The film is set more 10 years after the second film. John Connor is now 20. SkyNet does send another one terminator cyborg called the T-X, even more powerful & advanced than the dreaded T-1000. However, another CSM-101 Terminator is also sent back to protect John against the T-X. Now, Skynet is patiently assuming control of civilian computer systems, under the guise of a computer virus.

The Patriot

A War film directed by Roland Emmerich, and starring Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger. The film mainly takes place in South Carolina and depicts the story during American Revolutionary War. The protagonist, Benjamin Martin, is loosely based on real Continental Army officer Francis Marion. He is a veteran of French and Indian War raising his seven children. He try not to involved in war that happen in his country. But he can’t resist anymore after his son has been brutally killed by the generals of the British army. The coolest part of this movies is on how Benjamin Martin eliminate all British soldier after they killed his son. After that, the leadership of Benjamin Martin lead the American win the war against British army.

First Knight

A romantic fantasy adventure film based on Arthurian legend, directed by Jerry Zucker. It stars Richard Gere as Lancelot, Julia Ormond as Guinevere, Sean Connery as King Arthur and Ben Cross as Malagant. The film follows the rogue Lancelot’s romance with Lady Guinevere of Leonesse, who is to marry King Arthur of Camelot, while the land is threatened by the renegade knight Malagant. This film didn’t offer to much action scene, but the storyline is very interesting to follow. This film teach us about love, loyalty and brotherhood / friendship.


American action-thriller film directed by Jan de Bont, and set in Los Angeles. An LAPD officer, Police Officer Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves), must save the passengers of a bus that has a bomb set to explode if the bus goes below 50 MPH. The villain of this movie is a bomber and extortionist, retired Atlanta bomb squad sergeant, Howard Payne. After Payne escapes his first entanglement with Traven, he sets up a bomb on a city bus that Traven boards and must keep moving above 50 miles per hour (80 km/h) or the bomb will explode. This movie successfully makes us excited throughout the film. The script races along with non-stop action and surprise twists, without ever giving the audience time to stop for breath


Epic drama film directed by and starring Mel Gibson. The film was written for the screen and then novelized by Randall Wallace. Gibson portrays Sir William Wallace, a 13th century Scottish knight who gained recognition when he came to the forefront of the First War of Scottish Independence by opposing King Edward I of England, also known as “Longshanks” (Patrick McGoohan). Wallace leads his army through a series of successful battles against the England, including the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, and the sacking of the city of York. The story of the movie is very touching and inspiring. This is one of the best true story movie i ever watched


Michael Bay’s film that follows a group of blue-collar deep-core drillers sent by NASA to stop a gigantic asteroid on a collision course with Earth. It features an all-star cast including Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Billy Bob Thornton, Liv Tyler, Owen Wilson, Will Patton, Peter Stormare, Michael Clarke Duncan and Steve Buscemi. The story begin when NASA discovered that there is an asteroid roughly the size of Texas heading towards the Earth in 18 days. Unfortunately, NASA’s plans to destroy the asteroid are irrelevant. That is when the U.S. military decides to use a nuclear warhead to blow the asteroid to pieces. Then, scientists decide to blow the asteroid with the warhead inside the asteroid itself. The only man to do it, is an oil driller named Harry Stamper and his group of misfit drillers and geologists.

Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor is an American action war film directed by Michael Bay and produced by Bay, long-time partner Jerry Bruckheimer and Randall Wallace. It features a large ensemble cast, including Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Alec Baldwin, Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Garner. Pearl Harbor is a dramatic reimagining of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent Doolittle Raid. For me, this is one of the best Michael Bay’s film. The film deliver some action and touching love story during World War II.

Lord of The Ring : Fellowship of The Ring

Fantasy-adventure film directed by Sir Peter Jackson based on the first volume of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Set in Middle-earth, the story tells of the Dark Lord Sauron, who is seeking the One Ring. The Ring has found its way to the young hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood). The fate of Middle-earth hangs in the balance as Frodo and eight companions form the Fellowship of the Ring, and begin their journey to Mount Doom in the land of Mordor: the only place where the Ring can be destroyed. It was a major box office success, earning second highest-grossing film of 2001 in the U.S. and worldwide (behind Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone).

Lord of The Ring : Two Towers

It is the second film in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy directed by Peter Jackson. Continuing the plot of The Fellowship of the Ring, it intercuts three storylines, as Frodo and Sam continue their quest to destroy the One Ring in Mordor and meet Gollum, its former owner. Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli come across the war torn nation of Rohan as well as the resurrected Gandalf, before fighting at the Battle of Helm’s Deep, whilst Merry and Pippin escape capture and meet Treebeard, the Ent and plan an attack on Isengard. It was an enormous box-office success, earning outgrossing its predecessor. The most amazing scene on the film is a war on Helm’s Deep, especially when Gandalf reinforcement army appear come on the eastern hill. It’s so cool

Lord of The Ring : Return of The King

It is the concluding film in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, following The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and The Two Towers (2002). As Sauron launches the final stages of his conquest of Middle-earth, Gandalf the Wizard, and Théoden King of Rohan rally their forces to help defend Gondor’s capital Minas Tirith from the looming threat. Aragorn finally claims the throne of Gondor and summons an army of ghosts to help him defeat Sauron. Ultimately, even with full strength of arms, they realise they cannot win; so it comes down to the Hobbits, Frodo and Sam, to bear the burden of the Ring and deal with the treachery of Gollum. After a long journey they finally arrive in the dangerous lands of Mordor, seeking to destroy the One Ring in the place it was created, the volcanic fires of Mount Doom. The most amazing scene on the film is war on Minas Tirith. It’s so damn cool….

The Matrix

American science fiction-action film written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano, and Hugo Weaving. It is the first installment in the Matrix series of films, comic books, video games, and animation. The film depicts a future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually a simulated reality created by sentient machines to pacify and subdue the human population, while their bodies’ heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. Upon learning this, computer programmer “Neo” is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, involving other people who have been freed from the “dream world” and into reality. This movie introduce some brand new kind of special effects that adopted by many action movie after that. I love the concept the story of this film. It really beyond imagination.

The Matrix Reloaded

The second installment in The Matrix trilogy, written and directed by the Wachowski brothers. Six months after the events depicted in The Matrix, Neo has proved to be a good omen for the free humans, as more and more humans are being freed from the matrix and brought to Zion, the one and only h2hold of the Resistance. Neo himself has discovered his superpowers including super speed, ability to see the codes of the things inside the matrix and a certain degree of pre-cognition. But a nasty piece of news hits the human resistance: 250,000 machine sentinels are digging to Zion and would reach them in 72 hours. As Zion prepares for the ultimate war, Neo, Morpheus and Trinity are advised by the Oracle to find the Keymaker who would help them reach the Source. The most awesome scene in this movie is when Neo must fight hundred of Agent Smith.

The Matrix Revolution

American science fiction film and the third and final installment of The Matrix trilogy. The film was released six months following The Matrix Reloaded. Neo discovers that somehow he is able to use his powers into the real world too and that his mind can be freed from his body, as a result of which he finds himself trapped on a train station between the Matrix and the Real World. Meanwhile, Zion is preparing for the oncoming war with the machines with very little chances of survival. Neo’s associates set out to free him from The Merovingian since it’s believed that he is the One who will end the war between humans and the machines. What they do not know is that there is a threat from a third party, someone who has plans to destroy both the worlds.


American monster movie/disaster movie directed by Matt Reeves, produced by J. J. Abrams and written by Drew Goddard. Cloverfield follows five New Yorkers from the perspective of a hand-held video camera. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over. The movie starts as a monster of unknown origin destroys a building. As they go to investigate, parts of the building and the head of the Statue of Liberty come raining down. The movie follows their adventure trying to escape and save a friend, a love interest of the main character.

Bourne Identity

American spy film loosely based on Robert Ludlum’s novel of the same name. It stars Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, a psychogenic amnesiac attempting to discover his true identity amidst a clandestine conspiracy within the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The film also stars Franka Potente, Chris Cooper, Clive Owen, and Brian Cox. This film is the first in the Bourne film series. The film was directed by Doug Liman and adapted for the screen by Tony Gilroy and William Blake Herron. Although Robert Ludlum died in 2001, he is credited as the film’s producer alongside Frank Marshall. I love the way how Jason Bourne act so effectively during the film.

Bourne Supremacy

2004 American spy film based on Robert Ludlum’s novel of the same name. The film was directed by Paul Greengrass, written by Tony Gilroy and Brian Helgeland, and produced by Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley. Universal Pictures released the film to theaters in the United States on 23 July 2004. It is the second in the Bourne film series. The Bourne Supremacy continues the story of Jason Bourne, a former CIA assassin suffering from psychogenic amnesia. Bourne is portrayed by Matt Damon. The film focuses on his attempt to learn more of his shadowy past as he is once more enveloped in a conspiracy surrounding the CIA and Operation Treadstone. The film also stars Franka Potente as Marie Helena Kreutz, Brian Cox as Ward Abbott, Joan Allen as Pamela Landy and Julia Stiles as Nicky Parsons.

Bourne Ultimatum

The third Jason Bourne novel written by Robert Ludlum and a sequel to The Bourne Supremacy (1986). As in the 2004 film, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum has a completely different plot from the novel. In this movie, Bourne is once again brought out of hiding, this time inadvertently by London-based reporter Simon Ross who is trying to unveil Operation Blackbriar–an upgrade to Project Treadstone–in a series of newspaper columns. Bourne sets up a meeting with Ross and realizes instantly they’re being scanned. Information from the reporter stirs a new set of memories, and Bourne must finally, ultimately, uncover his dark past whilst dodging The Company’s best efforts in trying to eradicate him.

Catch Me if You Can

2002 American crime film based on the life of Frank Abagnale Jr., who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars by posing as a Pan American World Airways pilot, a Georgia doctor and Louisiana attorney and parish prosecutor. His primary crime was cheque forgery, becoming so skillful that the FBI eventually turned to him for help in catching other cheque forgers. Steven Spielberg directed the film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Abagnale and Tom Hanks as Hanratty.

Enemy of The State

1998 spy-thriller film directed by Tony Scott about a group of rogue NSA agents who kill a Congressman in a politically-motivated murder, and then try to cover up the murder by destroying evidence and intimidating witnesses. It was written by David Marconi and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The film stars Will Smith, Gene Hackman, Jon Voight, Lisa Bonet and Regina King. The film seems to have been h2ly influenced by Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 classic, The Conversation. Enemy of the State appears to borrow the character of surveillance expert Brill, and his electronically-shielded home/workplace from The Conversation. However, the Brill character has different names in each movie, and it was probably not intended for Enemy of the State to be a sequel as such. See the analysis under the heading Influences below.

Deja Vu

2006 crime thriller with elements of science fiction. The film was directed by Tony Scott, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and co-written by Bill Marsilii and Terry Rossio. The film stars Denzel Washington, Bruce Greenwood, Matt Craven, Jim Caviezel, and Paula Patton as the main characters, but also includes actors Val Kilmer and Adam Goldberg. Déjà Vu involves ATF agent Douglas Carlin, who travels back in time in attempts to prevent a domestic terrorist attack that takes place in New Orleans and to save a woman with whom he falls in love, Claire Kuchever.

The Last Samurai

American epic drama film directed and co-produced by Edward Zwick, who also co-wrote the screenplay based on a story by John Logan. The film was inspired by a project developed by writer and director Vincent Ward. The film stars Tom Cruise (who also co-produced) in the role of American soldier Nathan Algren, whose personal and emotional conflicts bring him into contact with samurai warriors in the wake of the Meiji Restoration in the Empire of Japan in 1876 and 1877. Other actors include Ken Watanabe, Tony Goldwyn, Hiroyuki Sanada, Timothy Spall, Shin Koyamada, and Billy Connolly. The film’s plot is inspired by the 1876 Satsuma Rebellion led by Saig? Takamori, and also on the story of Jules Brunet, a French army captain who fought alongside Enomoto Takeaki in the earlier Boshin War.

Mission Impossible 2

Mission: Impossible II (also known as M:i-2) is a 2000 action film directed by John Woo, and starring Tom Cruise, who also served as the film’s producer. It is a sequel to Brian De Palma’s 1996 film Mission: Impossible with Cruise reprising his role as agent Ethan Hunt of the IMF, a top-secret espionage and clandestine operation agency. Ethan has been sent on a mission to retrieve and destroy the supply of a genetically created disease called ‘Chimera’. His mission is made impossible due to the fact that he is not the only person after samples of the disease. He must also contest with a gang of international terrorists headed by a turned bad former IMF agent who has already managed to steal the cure called ‘Bellerophon’ and now need ‘Chimera’ to complete their grand plan of infecting the whole world. In order to infiltrate and locate the terrorist group he relies on the help of an international thief Nyah of whom he quickly develops a love interest. Time is not only running out for Agent Hunt to find and destroy ‘Chimera’ before the terrorists get their hands on it, but he must also find ‘Bellerophon’ so as to save his love interest who has already become infected by the disease from a terrible and rapid death.

Mission Impossible 3

Mission: Impossible III (also known as M:i:III) is a 2006 action film, the third based on the spy-themed television series Mission: Impossible starring Tom Cruise who reprises his role of IMF agent Ethan Hunt.

But he is called back into action to confront the toughest villain he’s ever faced – Owen Davian, an international weapons and information provider with no remorse and no conscience. Hunt assembles his team: his old friend Luther Strickell, transportation expert Declan, and background operative Zhen. They are to rescue one of his very own trainees, Lindsey who was kidnapped while on a surveillance detail of Davian. It soon becomes evident that Davian is well-protected, well-connected, and downright malicious. This forces Hunt to extend his journey back into the field in order to rescue his wife, Julia, and uncover IMF double agents in the process.


American epic science fiction film written and directed by James Cameron, and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi and Sigourney Weaver. The film is set in 2154, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system. The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na’vi—a humanoid species indigenous to Pandora.

gone in 60 seconds


For me, i think this is the best Liam Neeeson movie all the time. In this movie, Neeson plays as Bryan Mills, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative who sets about tracking down his daughter after she is kidnapped while traveling in France. Bryan is retired highly-skilled CIA field agent that try to build closer relationship with her daughter, Kim. Kim lives with her mother Lenore and her wealthy stepfather Stuart. Kim manages to convince her reluctant father to allow her to travel to Paris with her friend Amanda. When the girls arrive in Paris they share a cab with a stranger named Peter, and Amanda lets it slip that they are alone in Paris. Using this information an Albanian gang of human traffickers kidnaps the girls. Kim barely has time to call her father and give him information. Her father gets to speak briefly to one of the kidnappers and he promises to kill the kidnappers if they do not let his daughter go free. The kidnapper wishes him “good luck,” so Bryan Mills travels to Paris to search for his daughter and her friend.


The Bone Collector
