Other than Iron Man 2, 2010 was pretty much devoid of big-name superhero films, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. After a glut of well-known comic book-inspired films in 2009, in 2010 action fans were served up lesser known comic book characters (Red, The Losers, Kick-Ass) and for the most part the film adaptations of the less recognizable comic characters successfully made the jump to the big screen. But overall 2010 was a disappointing year for action movies. There were more bombs than hits, and even a few on this list failed to make an impact at the box office. However, this list isn't about which action films made the most money and instead is all about which offered the best executed, most unique, or just generally entertaining action scenes of the year.
