Esquire's 42 of the Best Action Movies to Make You Throw Your Popcorn in Surprise (Update)

43 actually...
"It's a bit tricky to pin down exactly where action films as we know them now started. The pure action film which use the nuts and bolts of thrillers to launch their enormous stars into a series of even bigger explosions – only really got going in the West in the early Eighties, after Hollywood had had its eyes opened to the majesty of the martial arts films coming out of Asia. There's an odd circularity to how big-budget action films now exist mainly in the superhero film vortex, with protagonists who are the logical extreme of that improbably handy secret agent. Certainly, we've not lost our appetite for watching people smash seven shades out of each other while searching for some McGuffin or other. Here are the best action films ever." - esquire.com
