There have been many actors in Hollywood that are famous for their roles in action films and we are here to talk about the best, all of which you can probably find among the hundreds of movies to stream online. Acton films can get a bad rep for being cheesy, over the top or just badly written. But for me they are the most enjoyable because the actors who star in them like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham or Bruce Willis give it a personality that you just don’t find in any other genre. They have created the best one liners and fight montages that we all love to imitate in our lives and even in other pop culture.
What you don’t see in the movies in the behind the scenes relentless amount of working out and mental discipline these guys must endure to not only look the part be physically able to do the stunts and fights. Look at Jackie Chan for example, he is a master of Kung Fu which is incredibly difficult in its own right. He has been able to bring that skill to film in not only a skilled way, but also a very humorous way that nobody can imitate.
What’s fantastic to see is that it’s not only men as the leading roles in actions films but women are really making top quality films too, like Gal Gadot as Diana in Wonder Woman. This film is a real inspiration to countless girls around the world that show women can be just as powerful as men and make a great film that everyone can enjoy.
The best actors in action films have given us some of the best movies in recent film history and they have driven a pop culture that makes billions. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
