Top 10 Manliest Movies of 2012
A new benchmark in modern martial arts action movies, The Raid is pure awesome from start to finish. It does get a bit tiring towards the end with so much ass-kicking going on, but for the most part it's a superb ride, and its R rating coupled with phenomenal action scenes ensures it's a must-see for guys who respect cinematic mandom.
Just look at that cast. Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Van Dammage, Scott Adkins... Yeah, this is a movie made by men for men. The action scenes are superb and vehemently R, and though it's not as good as it could've been, it's still enjoyable. Manly men, have at it!
The Universal Soldier movies have always been reliably manly, with 2009's Regeneration a particularly excellent manly movie. Day of Reckoning is another superbly manly action movie; it's one of the most violent movies I have ever seen. The presence of Dolph, Van Damme and Scott Adkins ensures this is essential viewing for manly men.
