Being my second favorite It is not the same movie it doesn't have the same plot and I love the fact that they have made difference in casting by still keeping Willis and adding L. Jackson to still keep fun and exciting and there is nothing better than action and big laughs. O heck yea was this movie the shiz.

Listen was it a let down maybe to you but for a 11 year old kid who saw this on Cinemax back when it came out it was the best thing ever. As I am grown up I do realize that it is only my third favorite but guess hat it as fun as the others it is as funny as the others and yes like Peter Travis said Bruce Willis is still the man flipping love this movie. Best line is the helicopter scene and I do understand that this will never happen on top of a jet and the plot but c'mon this is one bad as5 flick.

Well, an action film staring Bruce Willis with lots of explosives, guns, and humor right, the die hard film we have been waiting for except this is an overblown poor editing poor writing and slows down unlike White House Down which this crappy film is shorter sure but not better. This loud dumb play by play for a quick cash grab and nothing is helping this film. Lets hope the next one will not be directed by John Moore.
6. RED 2 (2013)

It's fun exciting and funnier than the first. This is thing though there are two sequels that divide people like for me I found kick ass 2 not that good but here is a sequel that ups the antics without going to far with its stupidity all it is action flick with awesome characters and to which makes this a better movie than the first and just a better movie than kick-ass 2

It's ridiculous fun to have with a cast who has fun with itself and knows how to do it in style. In the year with so many oldies getting the band back together of taking down the baddie and boy it's fun to see John McClain with a gun again, Red (get it) Shawshank, Queen Elizabeth, and just John Mackolvich with guns. Funny offbeat killjoy.

The best of the bunch and the Stath brings his A game. New car new moves new and bright fresh film. The opening fight editing garage fight scene and whatever comes after that is action movie adrenaline heaven. Fast moving an action film who knows how to deliver the goods.

More ridiculous than the previous two? The answer is yes it is. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy this fun filled action adventure with fast cars and hot babes. Sure it is every 13 year-old boy fantasy to see things fly at the screen you know style over substance but boy is it great.
11. The Transporter Refueled (2015)

Say what will about these films being just dumb and an average horror flick. But I do think these films are ground breaking. Yes yes I know the first one is kinda a gimmick but I really love this film. Thanks to Safe Haven directed by Gareth Evans is absolutely breath taking.
13. V/H/S (2012)

Watching this film kinda made me hate most of it. The acting the beginning characters and really stupid character decisions that does not make sense. But most of these shorts are a little to long and show way to much frontal nudity towards women. Hey I like it as much as the next hundreds of guys but when it is exploited to get a rise it just never sits well with anyone. Nevertheless it is a big problem to have but as the shorts went along and the satisfying ending it goes pretty far and well filmed.

Yes yes it can not top the first one but but it is fast fun time. Bloody intense and filled with surprisingly good performances and twist turns you don't see coming. It works not only as a good zombie film but also adds to the action horror collaboration that reinvented by the Blade series this adds more and incredible fun. Great fun and a great film.
16. 28 Days Later... (2002)

Danny Boyle did more than just reinvent the zombie genre but also the horror franchise that anything after this zombie flick to be consider good and scary has to be fast. Diary of the Dead did a good job at slow zombies but pretty much even when I watch Shaun of the Dead I do see glimpse of Romero but not on that film but 28 Days Later is scary frightful time.
17. Toy Story 3 (2010)
G | 103 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Votes: 652,456 | Gross: $415.00M
To me the Toy Story Trilogy gets better with each film as they go along. And the third is the best as films come to joy. It has almost everything that can been expected from the previous two that means it has heart and humor. There is more to be hold of this brilliant animation of characters leaping off the screen to make us feel again just like every other film. And touching us in every possible way to makes feel like a kid again and saying goodbye to that kid.
18. Toy Story 2 (1999)

When Woody is stolen by a toy collector, Buzz and his friends vow to rescue him, but Woody finds the idea of immortality in a museum tempting.
Votes: 448,017 | Gross: $245.85M
Just about as good as the first but to me better. Emotional heart breaking and a group of talented people make there mark as the best animation film of 1999. With more humor more livelier characters to stick around and it is great film over all to watch.
19. Toy Story (1995)

Terrible across the board with bad acting including Liam and just not even over the top villains just boredom from start to finish even in the action scenes. Everyone knows that this is badly written and stoopid. So much so that it leaves a serious bad taste in anyone who watches it.
