The 60 Best Action Movies

"Action". To some it just means "violence", but the greats of action cinema give us something more, turning shootings, punching and explosions into a spectacular artform. From the taciturn classics of the '70s, through the one-man-army '80s, the mismatched-buddy '90s and on to the superheroic present day, allow Empire to guide you through 60 of our favourites.
