Which is the best Action superstar in your opinion. There is no right or wrong.
I voted "Other"
Jackie Chan is my favorite- basically for all of his Hong Kong films (yes, pre-Rush Hour). 8)
Man that's tough. I don't think I can pick just one. Although I can eliminate all but two easily.
To me Arnold defines Action Superstar. He's who I grew up watching. I also really like Bruce Willis, and as Dennis said, Jackie Chan is just amazing in all his Hong Kong films.
Milla, hands down. I just rented .45, gonna watch it tomorrow.
How many widely popular, huge grossing, action flicks has this Milla girl been in?
Curious..What makes her "the best" compared to the seasoned "pro's" of the action genre?
Well, this is a male dominated forum, and she's a really hot woman.
True I guess...but that alone doesn't make her the "best" action star....
^ What Eric said. I'll watch her in anything, over and over, just because it's her and she is HOT. She's by far the "best" looking maybe not the "best" acting (but then none on that list are great actors anyway) and Shane never clarified what type of "best".
Voted Bruce Wilis. Because he plays roles that are less superhuman and more everyman caught in bad situation.
Jet Li for me. He is the cream of his genre and I really enjoy his films. Of course I love Asian films in general, and have a special fondness for the escapist Hong Kong action film genre.
Gotta go with Ahnuld.
Being an action star is all that qualifies.
Geena Davis in "The Long Kiss Goodnight."
Keira Knightley was smokin' in "Domino."
Voted other. Harrison Ford
Classic heros there are:
So, I agree with David's thoughts on why Jet Li...
Harrison Ford is pretty good, but I think he defined his own niche and it's not *quite* action hero so much as action buffoon that's just lucky enough to shade the hero side of the scale.
I didn't see Harrison Ford
I see Harrison Ford mentioned twice before my post.
