TOUGHEST ACTION HEROES IN MOVIE HISTORY
Added on: 9th Aug 2016
George Nada is the main protagonist in John Carpenter’s
classic They Live. He is a quiet man, but with a lot on his
mind, more than likely his feelings on how life is dealing him
a bad hand. So it becomes more of an insult to him when
he discovers that the wealthy elite and anyone in authority
is actually an alien out to decimate and enslave the human
race. So what does he do next? He rocks a pair of shades
that tracks down the aliens and delivers some serious
John Matrix (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a retired
Delta Force op who gets really pissed when the bad guys
make the huge mistake of kidnapping his daughter in a
desperate attempt to force him to assassinate a South
American dictator. Why didn’t they just ask him politely?
Now Matrix is after them and the worst part is that
Chuck Norris is on vacation and can’t help them.
Chance Boudreaux is an ex-serviceman, a former Special
Forces operative, back home from the Merchant Marines,
in trouble for back dues and striking a superior, and is just
plain down on his luck. Jean Claude did some serious
butt whooping in this role, plus he had one of the most
ridiculous and hilarious mullets in movie history.
Beatrix Kiddo, known as “The Bride” to you and me, was an
elite assassin and member of the Deadly Vipers Assassination
Squad (DVAS). Her code name: Black Mamba. That was
then, though. The Bride wakens from a four-year coma and
the child she carried in her womb is gone. Now she must
wreak vengeance on the team of assassins who betrayed
her—her own team. So she wears a super-cool yellow
jumpsuit a la Bruce Lee from Game of Death and
she handles business.
An ex-CIA spook played by Liam Neeson in the Taken trilogy
is the kind of father every male child wishes he could have
had. However, we must all agree that having your daughter
kidnapped not once, not twice, but three times could be
considered bad parenting.
Mel Gibson as Martin Riggs introduces himself to us as a
Vietnam vet and a suicidal cop who wants to go meet his
dead wife. After he tries to commit suicide a couple of times
he realizes that his mission in this world is not yet done
and decides to wipe the floor with all of the bad guys.
The Terminator a freaking hero? Well, all right guys, not in the
first movie. But one swift reprogramming session ensured
that this T-800 cyborg returned in Terminator 2: Judgment Day
not to go after John Connor but to protect him from a
technologically advanced robot that makes even
Arnie in the original look like a boy scout.
The best part about Ip Man is that this grandmaster was
a real person who mentored Bruce Lee to become the
legend he is today. Apparently, the role gave Donnie Yen
his own chance to shine in this biopic of the teacher’s
youth and Yen didn’t let the chance go to waste.
A former Special Forces unit “Black Light” lieutenant,
Snake was the youngest man decorated by the president.
Once a war hero in the campaigns in Leningrad and Siberia,
he is now a convicted bank robber. He has long hair and
wears an eye patch, a sleeveless black T-shirt, urban
camouflage pants, and black motocross boots.
Oh yeah, he plays with guns too sometimes!
