It is utterly ridiculous - but that makes it the best utterly ridiculous action film for me

Never really sure if all of these count as straight-up action film but it’d be something like this:

  1. Terminator 2
  2. Leon
  3. Die Hard 3
  4. Dead Man’s Shoes
  5. Oldboy

If I can’t have Dead Man’s Shoes which c’mon is basically Rambo on a farm, I’ll take Terminator 1

Dead Man’s Shoes is fantastic. But there is no action.

It’s basically all killing
It follows all the tropes of a wronged silent hard man working his way up killing a criminal ladder, it’s an action film
