Whether as a lead or a supporting role... it would be interesting to see how he fares in these filmmakers' works... The big man can act, he has shown surprising amount of range in overlooked films like "Collateral Damage" and "Stay Hungry", and "Maggie" might've opened doors to a new stage in his career. I believe these filmmakers can and will play to his strengths and add to his range.
Where sole star vehicles mean big business for the year, and not just due to ensemble or past franchise power, their star power during the era also must be accounted for. For these money earners, people pay to see these actors, and not just the characters they play.
The sooner, the better...
The best studio-produced, tentpole, red-blooded films made by the Tinseltown crew.
In ascending order. The best is at the bottom.
In ascending order, from least interested to most anticipated
Surnames in alphabetical order
Low or big-budget, adrenaline fueled, CGI or stunt-filled spectacles or sweeping sagas that thrill the senses, minds and emotions alike. In other words, just plain entertaining. Grab a big bucket of popcorn for these ones.
They weren't bad at all, people!
From bad to worst, in descending order, #10 being the absolute worst.
No superheroes/superpowers/fancy costumes. A few machines.
(Descriptions will be completed soon)
Note that this list is describing the actor's quality as an action hero, and NOT in order of their overall acting ability. (EDITED LIST May 2013)
Movies that a lot of people seem to love, except me to an extent.
Not that an actual gun would be used, but you get the point, pun not intended.
Note that this does not rank the overall quality of the movie.
This is a director and crew list. I've already set a list of action heroes on another list "Ultimate Action Heroes". If one or more people from their respective fields are involved in making the ultimate action movie, then I'll be first in line to see it. These people get - know - breathe action.
Feature (non-documentary) directorial debuts of internationally famous faces (then and now).
It doesn't count if it's a recorded live concert, or when the actor/director doesn't get credit for directing (e.g.: Kurt Russell for Tombstone). One exception (see below).
The real list is from #1 to #10. Numbers 11 - 25 are runner-ups in alphabetical order that are still worth watching.
The action movies where the ending/climax is so incredible/over-the-top, thrilling, exciting, and heart-stopping that it makes you out of breath before really blasting you out of your seat and closes in an ultimately satisfactory way. (In alphabetical order, and CONTAINS SPOILERS)
