As always, this is my very personal and subjective list. For me, Top#5 action movies are: Inception, Die Hard, Indiana Jones, Minority Report and True Lies
This film was directed by Christopher Nolan and starred by Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page. It has rhythm, action and, for me, it deserves the Top#1. Insomnia is an action film, of course, but it’s more than this because its structure is complicated and its screenplay is original. I think this is a fantastic film. Leonardo DiCaprio, as always, is great. I don’t this actor hasn’t won several. I cannot understand it. GO on, Leonardo DiCaprio! You are a great actor.

2.- Die Hard
A total classic with Bruce Willis. Directed by John McTiernan. Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles. Action, guns… everything! Die Hard is based on the novel Nothing Lasts Forever. Box office: 140$ millions. Not bad, not bad. Bruce Willis plays the role as John McClaine. He is very funny and he has many of the most memorable quotes on action movies.

3.- Indiana Jones
I’ve chosen just Indiana Jones because I cannot choose between first and third part. Harrison Ford is simply perfect on his role. Raiders of the Lost Ark was the first one. Here it’s the famous scene when we met Indiana Jones for the first time.

4.- Minority Report
Another film directed by Steven Spielberg, this time with Tom Cruise on an story about future, crimes and liberty. Don’t miss it! Box Office: 358$ million. Based on the novel The Minority Report, Philip K. Dick.

5.- True Lies
I love this film. Good action scenes and, overall, its sense of humor. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis but don’t miss Tom Arnold. As always, he is funny and the perfect partner for super-spy Harry Tasker (Schwarzenegger). It’s one of the best works of James Cameron. My favorite scene? When Schwarzenegger rides the horse.

I know I have forgotten many good films as The Dark Knight, Avatar, Terminator and many others but I had to choose and these are my five. Have a nice day, dear friends.
