There are action movies, and then there are ACTION MOVIES! What is the difference? The heroes. There are some action heroes who are just sort of there, and then there are those who are great. Memorable roles put on by real action heroes are what give us the best action movies of all time. So, here are some of Hollywood’s greatest action heroes. Some of them might be from different eras, but all of them are from action packed movies, and that is what counts. If you haven’t seen a movie with one of these actors lately, you should.
Nicholas Cage may not be thought of as an epic action hero, but he has been in more outstanding action movies than most actors have seen! Between The Rock, Windtalkers, Bangkok Dangerous, and many more action movies, Nicholas Cage has paid his dues to become a true Hollywood action hero.
Sylvester Stallone, from Rambo to Rocky, has been one of the most memorable action heroes of all time. And if there is one thing that you can say about Stallone, it is that he has kicked more evil but on the silver screen than probably anyone!
Many people think of John Wayne as an actor of a former era, but the truth is that he saw more movie action during his career than most actors ever will! If you are in the mood for action of any kind, then John Wayne just might be your most famous actor. From westerns, to oil rigs, to war, John Wayne has seen about as much movie action as there is in Hollywood, and he was one of the first action heroes to make a career out of it that was so widespread that everyone now knows who he is.
