Action Movie Music: “I Will Survive” From Gladiator (1992)

I saw this for the first time earlier this year, and I have got to say that it can be put up on the pedestal of “fighting” movies with the likes of “Rocky”, and “Warrior”. It has got hard hit...

Action Movie Music: Predator (1987) Main Theme

We all know Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is a stone cold classic, but not just from an action standpoint. Yes, we have Arnie and crew going toe to toe with the coolest alien in cinema history, but we also get Alan Si...

Action Movie Music: “We Fight For Love” From Commando

Every time I hear this one from the final credits of the classic 80’s action flick “Commando”, I get even more hair that appears on my chest. It’s got a great beat, that gets you in the mood to just scre...

Action Movie Music – “Shakedown” From Beverly Hills Cop II

You know, I love the 80’s! It had cool action movies, the best soundtracks, and of course Eddie Murphy when he made good films.  Seems so long ago, doesn’t it? Kinda depressing! To brighten up our  nostalgic spiri...

Action Movie Music: Friday Night’s a Great Night For Football

The Last Boy Scout is my second favourite Bruce Willis film after Die Hard; the script is top notch, the violence is hardcore and Willis has never been cooler. This song plays over the opening scene before Billy Blanks goes cra...

Action Movie Music: Total Recall Theme by Jerry Goldsmith

If there’s one thing nearly every Arnie movie has in common, it’s that they all have fantastic music. This is my second favourite theme after Terminator 2 and arguably my all time favourite Jerry Goldsmith music. It...

Action Movie Music: Feel the Impact from Double Impact

Would you like more cheese with that, sir? I love this tune; it’s incredibly lame but awesome at the same time and Double Impact will always be one of my very favourite Jean-Claude Van Damme movies. By the way, does anyon...

Action Movie Music: Shinedown – Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom) – The Expendables

I think this is one of the best action movie tunes of all time; it’s just full of testosterone and totally matches the kick ass tone of The Expendables movie. It’s a shame the second movie didn’t have any memo...
