The Best, Most Kick Ass Action Stars of All Time

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Rating: List Type:
The number 1 spot has to go to the Austrian killing machine, Arnold badass Schwarzenegger! His films are iconic, that cold glare, the robotic accent, that 6"2 frame- he's the perfect action hero, the very tops.

Best Films: The Terminator 1 & 2, Commando, Predator, Conan The Barbarian and Total Recall

Severin Severin's rating:
Although there are times when I can't understand what the hell he's saying, Stallone is a genuine badass. The Italian Stallion's raw machismo, great biceps and pretty boy good looks guaranteed him a spot on screen, and spot in our hearts. Stallone's a classic action hero and the guy everyone roots for.

Best Films: the Rocky series, First Blood, Tango and Cash, Cobra

Severin Severin's rating:
Swedish stunner Dolph Lundgren first busted his way into Hollywood with the classic line "I must break you" in Rocky 4. And from then on the 6'5 blondie has starred in tons of super cool B movies and gotten a 2nd degree black belt in karate.

Best Films: Showdown In Little Tokyo, Red Scorpion, The Punisher, Universal Soldier

Severin Severin's rating:
Known as the muscles from Brussels, this French dude kicks major ass and has tons of martial arts skills, beating up guys twice his size without a cinch.

Best films: Bloodsport, Double Impact, Timecop, Kickboxer

Severin Severin's rating:
Whether it's Italian spaghetti westerns or tough as nails cop dramas, Clint the squint Eastwood is the epitome of badass. His sandpapery voice and tough guy demeanor made him the action idol of the 70s.

Best Films: Dirty Harry, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Escape From Alcatraz, Where Eagles Dare

Severin Severin's rating:
Average listal rating (606 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
He started off a Disney star but went onto be a buff and tough star of action flicks. Charming and smooth with a cool mullet, Kurt shoots his way into the best of the best.

Best Films: Big Trouble In Little China, The Thing, Escape From New York

Severin Severin's rating:
Average listal rating (697 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
The martial arts legend from Hong Kong, the man who gets injured frequently from doing his own stunts, Jackie chop and kick Chan!

Best Films: The Drunken Master, Rush Hour, Rumble In The Bronx

Severin Severin's rating:
60s superstar McQueen was a badass legend. Aside from starring in turbo charged action flicks and being awesome, in his spare time the man with the rugged good looks raced sports cars and motorcycles and went pro.

Best Films: Bullitt, The Getaway, Papillon, The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape

Severin Severin's rating:
Average listal rating (383 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 0
The greatest, most skilled martial artist of all time and the founder of Jeet Kune Do, Bruce was amazingly agile and beat up all adversaries in his films with graceful ease. His films had non stop ass kicking.

Best Films: Enter The Dragon, Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon, The Big Boss

Severin Severin's rating:
Average listal rating (1068 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
Bond. James Bond. This Scottish superhero was the ideal suave lead who saved the day and got the gal. Connery's charm and larger than life persona make him a mega action star.

Best Films: Goldfinger, The Rock, From Russia With Love, The Hunt For Red October, Diamonds are Forever

Severin Severin's rating:

These guys fuck shit up!
