The Punisher Arrives: Punisher: War Zone

I remember watching this movie in the theatre back in 2008 and I’ll stick my hand up and say I’ve always really enjoyed it; it has a huge bodycount and this scene alone has our boy Frank shooting, decapitating and i...

Chaney vs. Jim Henry: Hard Times (1975)

Hard Times remains one of Walter Hill’s finest hours with Charles Bronson looking lean and mean as drifter turned fighter for hire Chaney. He gets taken on by the fast talking Speed (James Coburn) and takes part in a few ...

“How’s the Action, Boys?” Hard to Kill

I haven’t posted a clip from a Sensei Seagal movie for a while so what better way to spend a snowy (here at least) Sunday morning than watching our ponytailed hero kill some bad guys in hilariously brutal fashion. Note wh...

“Clean-up on Aisle Four”: Stone Cold (1991)

I miss movies like this and I still think it’s a damn shame that Brian Bosworth didn’t become a big action star as he certainly had the goods. This movie alone cemented him under legendary status for me and the supe...

Stairwell Fight from Firestorm (2013)

Andy Lau stars in this underrated actioner where he plays a cop who battles robbers in the streets of Hong Kong as a typhoon hits the city. The action scenes are really well done for the most part but there is the odd noticeabl...

Epic Shootout from No Tears for the Dead

Although I prefer The Man from Nowhere No Tears for the Dead still has some spectacular action scenes and this is one of best I’ve seen recently. The plot tells the tale of a veteran assassin (Jang Dong-gun) who accidenta...

Airport Shoot-out from The Expendables 2

Although I’m not a fan of some of the lame humour in this scene there is no doubt that the action is badass and when we get the hero shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis all firing their guns...
