10 of the Best: Action Movie Couples

Seeing as it’s Valentine’s Day and all, I decided to spotlight the romantic side of action. The hero that would do anything to save his love. The damsel in distress who needs her better half to break some skulls. It’s all very romantic when you think about it.

So here are the top ten action movie couples that bring the love along with the pain:




1. Rocky Balboa/Adrian Pennino The ultimate couple. They both support each other while Rocky goes through the ringer every time. They seem like real people and their love is clearly present.

2. Han Solo/Princess Leia Yeah, they fought a lot, but isn’t that what couples do most of the time? Still, their love/hate relationship was one of the strongest and funniest aspect of the original trilogy.

3. John McClane/Holly Gennaro What better way to show love to your better half than to kill a bunch of terrorist in a giant building by yourself? Seems easy enough.

4. Indiana Jones/Marion Ravenwood Plenty of chemistry between these two as they both try to one up each other in stubbornness and ass kicking.

5. James Bond/Vesper Lynd (Casino Royale) When I think of hot chemistry, these two come to mind the most. Just instant connection and both play off each other perfectly.

6. Harry Tasker/Helen Tasker (True Lies) The married couple that spies together, kills terrorists together. Who said marriage has to be boring?

7. Jack Traven/Annie Porter (Speed) Love at first sight and that was needed was a bomb and Dennis Hopper.

8. Smith/Donna (Shoot Em’ Up) Sure, Donna is a hooker and Smith is a badass killer with a penchant for carrots, but their love for a hunted baby brings them stronger. Hell, Smith kills people while having sex with Donna. How awesome is that?

9. John/Jane (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) The epitome of good looking spies. Like Spy vs. Spy with eye candy for both males and females.

10. The Bride/Bill (Kill Bill) You can’t have love without hate and so there is no truer love than the one for vengeance.

About the Author

My name is Omar and I love action movies. I grew up loving action films thanks in part to my father who would deliver a healthy dose of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Seagal in my movie diet. Ever since then, I continue to love the genre more and more and go along perfectly with my love for the horror genre. What other movie genre can specialize in giving you pure adrenaline and excitement in every turn?
