Gary Daniels one of the greatest Martial arts actors of all time has made an incredible amount of films. With a career that started in 1988 and still going strong today Gary Daniels is the true definitions of an action hero. With so many films to chose from I decided to do a top 5 list of his best films. It was not easy as there are so many great ones but here are my top 5 choices
This martial arts actioner postulates that the L.A. riots were caused by the IRA. British Special Air Service officer Shane (Gary Daniels) flies out to the L.A. ghettos to rescue the daughter of the British ambassador. They encounter roller-blading gangsters and bikers, all of whom work for the IRA

A red moon - a bloodmoon - is rising and someone is going to die. Gary Daniels stars as Detective Ken O'Hara who is returning to action to stop a martial arts master with steel fingers who is killing champions from all sports. Some of the best martial arts fighting you will ever see. This is without a doubt imo Gary Daniels best film
JCVD is definitely an action movie icon. He's had a career that has spaned decades and it's still going strong. Love him or hate him you can't argue he makes (made) some of the best action films out there. So here in my opinion are his Top 5 films.
Ok say what you want but this is a fun slam.bang action film that holds up to this day. Van Damme stars as Counterterrorist officer, Jack Quinn who misses his target, Stavros (Mikey Rourke)on the eve of his final mission. From there, he is sent to the colon;y; a rebirth for presumed-dead assassins. He breaks free from there, and seeks the aid of Yaz (Denis Rodman)a weapons dealer, for his final battle with Stavros.
Twice the Van Damme means twice the action.

But Chad has a twin brother, Alex (also Van Damme), who suddenly reunites with his less-aggressive sibling and wants to avenge their father's death.

But the job market is tough, so Gaultier takes his hand-to-hand combat skills into the brutal world of bare-knuckle fighting, where the paydays are nearly as big as the risks.
A very very close second. Chance Boudreaux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a sailor skilled in martial arts, is employed to guard Natasha Binder (Yancy Butler) as she tracks down her father, an itinerant Vietnam veteran living in New Orleans named Douglas (Chuck Pfarrer). They soon uncover a sinister group of wealthy men who hunt the homeless for sport, paying them $10,000 if they can survive a crosstown journey. When Chance discovers that Natasha's father was one of their victims, he decides to destroy the evil hunters.
A no brainier really, the film that launched Van Damme's career.

While trying to gain access into the underground world of clandestine fighters, he also has to avoid military officers who consider him to be AWOL. After enduring a difficult training and beginning a romance with journalist Janice Kent (Leah Ayres), Frank is given the opportunity to fight. But can he survive a battle with the defending champion Chong Li (Bolo Yeung)
I love action movies. I consider myself an expert on the subject. Now every action franchise no matter how big or how small usually spawns a sequel, or 7. I have complied a list of the 5 best action sequels made in my opinion. Now keep in mind I did not count any Superhero films, as I have that for another list. And I only counted the second films. I mean Fast Five is better than Fast and Furious but that way part five. I only counted the part two's if you will. So here you go the too 5 action. Sequels of all time!
Michael Jai White takes over the role originated by Pulp Fiction heavyweight Ving Rhames in this sequel to the 2002 boxing drama that finds protagonist George Chambers forced to fight for his life in the brutal world of Russian prison boxing.

It's there he must battle Boyka (Scott Adkins) the most complete fighter in the world.

Responsible for the boy, Frank must reclaim him and then find an antidote before scores of innocents are stricken.
Lethal Weapon 2
As good as part one was this is the film that defined the buddy cop formula. South African smugglers find themselves being hounded and harassed by Riggs and Murtaugh, two mismatched Los Angeles police officers. However, the South Africans are protected by diplomatic immunity, and so the two are assigned to witness-protection duty in an attempt by their captain to keep his job. It is only when this witness reveals to them that he has already dealt with the smugglers that the trouble really starts.
Die Hard 2
A year after his heroics in L.A, detective John McClane (Bruce Willis) is mixed up in another terrorist plot, this time at Washington Dulles International Airport, where he is waiting for his wife (Bonnie Bedelia). That same night, South American politico and drug profiteer Ramon Esperanza (Franco Nero) is arriving in U.S. custody. McClane takes action when a treasonous ex-colonel (William Sadler) seizes control of the airport, threatening to crash every inbound flight unless Esperanza is freed.
Best of the Best 2
The first film was a feel good sports film focusing on male bonding and good sportsmanship. Well that goes out the window in part 2. After their defeat of the Korean national karate team in competition, Alex (Eric Roberts), Tommy (Phillip Rhee) and Travis (Christopher Penn) have established a martial arts studio in Las Vegas. For extra money, Travis fights in an underworld arena -- which leads to his death at the hands of vicious German Brakus (Ralf Moeller). Seeking revenge, Alex and Tommy attack Brakus, scarring his face, and then flee to the desert. Furious, Brakus orders his men to find and kill them.
Ninjas what's not to love. They pop up out if nowhere kill somebody then throw a smoke bomb and vanish. They have amazing weapons, cool costumes, they throw stars, and are just all around badasses. Because ninjas are so cool countless movies have been made about them. Most all good very few bad. There are so many out there it can be hard to choose which to watch. So because of that I have complied a list of the 5 best Ninja films made.
