That's the issue; is it a sequel or a reboot? Rumours abound that set btw MM1 & MM2, but it looks so futuristic that it has to be btw MM2 & MM3 or after MM3. Otherwise its a reboot? Wish George Miller was more forthcoming! 10 years in the making and still no teaser trailer - die hard fan but patience is wearing thin

Are you happy that they've made another sequel? Or are you sick to death of them rehashing film series?

Young guns is a pretty good action western and what about blind fury starring rutgar hauer, or is that too underrated to be considered one of the best?

Yeah they don't make action films in the unapologetically ott way they did in the 80s and early 90s now, too serious these days.

Which one is your favourite in the lethal weapon series?, mine is the first one, i enjoy the others and the humour in them but they tend to be too preachy.

Tango & Cash
Death Wish :)

I have just bought ACTION JACKSON for my nexus tablet from Google play for £7.99 "bargain"

Love action jackson and over the top. Stallone's films are not oscar fair but they are very entertaining all the same.

Ninja Terminator (1985)

Now we're talking. I'd add Sakura Killers, Ninja Squad, Ninja Thunderbolt, Ninja Holocaust, basically anything with Richard Harrison in it.

Yes that's the 1,, Clancy Brown of Highlander fame was the psycho killer!

"Deadly Pursuit"

Was that the film with Sydney Poitier and Tom berenger in it? .. they chase some serial killer through some mountains?

Great movie !!

Ah, never heard of Final Score. The Hidden is a classic: great action scenes, shoot outs, car chases, aliens: and I love the music score. I always remember the scene at the beginning when Chris Mulkey's character goes on the rampage in his stolen black Ferrari - including hitting a wheelchair-bound patient who flies up in the air: but all we see is the chair crashing to the ground! Hilarious.

I love Arnie's The Running Man as well. Directed by Dt. Dave Starsky, no less! Released the same year as Predator, it is full of classic Schwarzenegger puns.

Good call, I love the Hitcher.

Sean Bean had a decent attempt at it in the remake but it just wasn't as good as Rutger Hauer, also they made some odd changes for the remake that didn't seem necessary like having 2 kids in the car rather than one, still not a bad film though but I'd take the original any day.

I remember 'Amsterdamed' being a fine murder/mystery

Posted on 22 Jul 2013 20:13:54 BDT
Rutger Hauer in 'The Hitcher' takes a bit of beating

Posted on 21 Jul 2013 23:12:11 BDT
Avenging force and American ninja seem to have been missed

And what about Rambo 1 and 2
