Top 30 actors and actresses in the action genre
Steven Seagal. It began when he broke his wrist Sean Connery, showing some movements of martial arts for the film "Never Say Never." Even now he is still the same fierce grip. Since then, he deftly smashing villains in films such as "Capture," "The Dead Zone" and "Above the Law". You want to see a real massacre, with a bit of humor? Well, then watch movies with this guy.
Tyrone Power. The same handsome as model Kevin Kline, and the star of many genres (drama, musicals, westerns, romantic comedies and war movies) - Power also starred in the role of the noble robber in such films as "The Captain from Castile," "Black Swan" (based on the novel Sabatini), "Son of fury" and "The Mark of Zorro." He is incredibly mask or the posture of the rider. Oh, well, of course, long black lashes.
Burt Lancaster. Like Cary Grant, Lancaster began his career as a circus acrobat. So it is not surprising that he is so nimble as a swashbuckling robber from "Crimson Pirate" (in the picture) or in the form of a medieval rebel in "The Flame and the Arrow". How nice to look at him in a duet with Kirk Douglas in the movie "tough guy" or with Clark Gable in the drama "Run Silent, Run Deep", which tells about the fate of the submarine during the Second World War.
Charles Bronson. In the 60th Bronson was considered a master of all trades, acting in different genres of films such as "The Magnificent Seven", "The Dirty Dozen", "The Great Escape" and others. But in the '70s, he became associated with the implacable justice and national hero who was fed up with rampant crime, becoming the star of the sequel to "Death Wish."
Toshiro Mifune. If someone decided to look for, where Clint Eastwood took his image "the hero without a name", which is often performed in a variety of Westerns, you probably would have found some similarities with the characters Mifune. It is a kind of anti-hero of such classic films directed by Akira Kurosawa, as "Rashomon," "Seven Samurai", "Yojimbo" and "Sanjurjo". Immoral, aggressive and sexy warriors Mifune was not interested in justice, they just want to survive in those conditions, which narrate the film.
Wesley Snipes. This guy has never had any problems with remembering his fight choreography for a particular role - he has a black belt in Shotokan karate. But it did not help Snipes is also easy to scatter prosecutors who attacked him with claims of tax evasion (an appeal is currently pending), it cope with the enemies in his films. We saw him in the role of a vampire in the movie "Blade", in the form of an agent for combating terrorism in the film "Passenger 57" and playing a drug lord in such blockbusters as "The Destroyer" and "New Jack City". And everywhere he looked invulnerable.
Uma Thurman. Can we now see the yellow tracksuit and not think about Uma Thurman, brandishing a samurai sword, bleed the enemy and thirsting for revenge? And no one will remember that the suit was a "pinched" to the outfit Bruce Lee in the film "Game of Death". After the "Kill Bill" Uma Thurman deserved rest on its laurels action icons.
Matt Damon. Who could have imagined before the release on the screens of the Jason Bourne movies, the star of "Good Will Hunting" can play this macho? Such a transformation cornered secret agent, which besides also lost memory seems jump the gap between the two images. But Damon is easy to cope with all the fight scenes and chase and immediately puts on a mask of cold-blooded killer when it's needed. It looks like a quiet and cute puppy suddenly pounces on his master and tearing it to pieces.
Kurt Russell. He started out as a child, playing in the Disney movies, but very quickly grew from the "bad guy." In the movie "Escape from New York" he cleverly disguises his pretty boy looks at the image of the one-eyed criminal Snake Plissken. This Statement insidious, shaggy anti-hero in a long leather coat. It is also stunningly bad guy in "DEATH PROOF". The image of an evil madman so is this actor.
Pam Grier. Posters of the film in 1973, "Coffey" image Grier announced as "the worst girl who ever misbehave in the city." And since then, he has not changed roles: that in a film about the women's prison "Big Dollhouse" or a tape on sexual avenger "Foxy Brown" Pam all the same.
Bruce Lee. The phrase "the muscles like steel" - perhaps a cliché, but it's something that could boast of Bruce Lee. Give it a nunchuck, and it all crumble the cabbage, showing the top skill of martial arts. Who has not watched "Fist of Fury" or "Way of the Dragon"? Bruce Lee created a furor in the world of cinema, it is a pity, died at age 32.
Kirk Douglas. He starred in the title role in "Champion", fought the giant squid in Disney's "Two Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" and led a rebellion of slaves-gladiators in "Spartacus", when Russell Crowe also walked on foot under the table. So remove the hat in front of dad Michael: it wrong appearance, to which touched a surgeon's scalpel, his old acting training that made laid out in full for the role, and the brilliant images that are not supplemented by computer special effects ... Well, where there is such a one dimensional minimalists like Clint Eastwood or Steven Seagal?
Linda Hamilton. Of course, you say yes it is the entire first part of the "Terminator" and the food was sobbing like a woman! But here's the second part of the "Day of Judgment" it still kicked ass endoskeletonu. And at the same time demonstrated the ability to use a weapon, like a commando, and those biceps that Madonna smokes nervously in the corner. And those glasses? Is it possible to look even cooler? Hail Sarah Connor!
Nicolas Cage. When the film saga of Indiana Jones, in which he played Harrison Ford, went to gather dust on the shelves of video rental, place the archaeologist-adventurer took Nicolas Cage, who played in the sequel "National Treasure." We also saw him as a prisoner overgrown in the movie "Con Air," an expert in the FBI, "the Rock," the antipodes-twins in John Woo's "Face" and cast in the thriller, filmed in the comic books, "Ghost Rider." And that's all he is one.
Russell Crowe. Anybody can play better pain and noble human rage, which cost so low? Not surprisingly, Crowe earned "Oscar" for his role as Maximus Decimus Meridiusa - General devotee of "Gladiator." But he also looks natural in the role of an educated captain in "Lord of the seas." And in "Robin Hood", he also shoots a bow better than Robin Hood himself. I wonder who he will play next time?
Angelina Jolie. It is difficult to decide where to begin. Eyes? Cheeks? Cheeks? These plump, sensual lips? And that's just what meets the eye. Jolie convincing and dramatic roles, and shines like a star of action games. Her unearthly beauty in harmony with the image of a strong woman who can stand up for themselves in such films as "Lara Croft", "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "Who is Salt?".
Mel Gibson. When he gave his "repentance" interview with Diane Sawyer, Gibson admitted that he had long been struggling with bouts of sudden, uncontrollable rage. Maybe that's why he's so good, portraying an angry police officer in the film "Lethal Weapon," the Scot avenging William Wallace and survived World apocalypse Mad Max.
Tom Cruise. The first trick that we remember today, hearing the name of Tom Cruise - is how he jumped on a couch on Oprah in 2005, showing his love for Katie Holmes. Poor Tom! Before he became so, he has played many roles. For example, in "Top Gun," "Mission Impossible" and the films of Steven Spielberg.
Bruce Willis. Following his success in the television series "Detective Agency" Moonlight "in which he starred with duet with Cybill Shepherd, Willis tried his hand at a couple of comedies. But then he found his true calling, played in the movie "Die Hard" in 1988, and this role has made him world famous. This is not a drunken plastic surgeon from henpecked "Death Becomes Her".
Steve McQueen. He could not throw such shrill and beautiful views, as James Dean or Brando Merlon. But, nevertheless, he is as much a symbol of cinema '50s as the "boys on the cover." And it looks cool in the movie hits of the 60's "The Great Escape" and "Bullitt" and in the movie 1974 "The Towering Inferno".
Sigourney Weaver. Well, okay, she played just two classic films of the genre Action, "Alien" by Ridley Scott and "Aliens" by James Cameron (for which, incidentally, was nominated for the "Oscar" for Best Actress). But Ellen Ripley gives a light so great that vile parasites from the depths of space that Weaver deserves the title of the goddess of female action.
Sylvester Stallone. At birth, Stallone was injured due to the fact that he pulled with forceps, as a result of which the nerve has been damaged. All his life the actor's lower lip protruded slightly, and language - partially paralyzed. No wonder he looked so convincing in the role of a beaten boxer Rocky Balboa and Rambo car revenge. Although Stallone somehow tightened with ekspluatetsiey both images that have arisen in the 70-80s, we do not get tired to admire his muscles.
Douglas Faerbenks. Yes, he appeared in silent films. Maybe it will make you scroll through the image. Come on, if it is advertising stylize a black and white silent movie, what you do not like Faerbenks? As it was sultry with costumed epic films as gracefully waving his sword in the tapes of the genre "cloak and sword". Remember the old "Mark of Zorro", "The Thief of Bagdad" and "Robin Hood."
Michelle Yeoh. The laws of physics do not have anything to do with air acrobatics, which can be viewed as a dance, and how to fight. Basically we know Michel from the films "Crouching Tiger, disappearing Dragon" and "The Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor."
Jackie Chan. He is a true master of martial arts. He was terribly famous in his native Hong Kong long before I came to Hollywood. Unlike his partner in the film "Rush Hour" Chris Tucker, he was not just satisfied scuffle on the screen. But if performed ballet pas, flavoring them with humor and making fierce fighting in the beautiful cinematic flights of fantasy. If you "Police Story" and "Drunken Master" never looked, then you have lost much.
Errol Flynn. Remember the days when heroes action games did not look oborzhavshimisya steroids and foul language? Flynn refers to the era of cinema, when the good and the bad guys were real gentlemen. Such as in 30-40-ies of the film "The Adventures of Robin Hood" or "Sea Hawk". Gallant, cute and extremely sexy, even in tight green pants - he always played negative characters in love with the main characters. Such qualities do not see in a shooter, starting with the '70s and beyond.
Arnold Schwarzenegger. Thanks to this actor benchmark hero action games 80s became pumped maypole, as well as in fashion came in "Teutonic" accent. Remember how he coined the German note of his famous "I'll be back" and "Hasta la vista, baby".
Clint Eastwood. Oh, this Clint! This narrowed gaze speaks volumes: the soul singles westerns, violent revenge films of Dirty Harry, unwavering confidence in a variety of other detectives, and even some mockery in several comedies. Here it is in all its glory.
Sean Connery. Roger Moore wrote the soundtrack for the James Bond film - the song "No one will do this better." Is not it about Connery? Seven times he has played 007, and after that, he starred in a variety of roles, ranging from military commanders to the daddy of Indiana Jones.
Harrison Ford. Strutting like a peacock, Han Solo, slightly clumsy Indiana Jones and striding Jack Ryan - Ford to cope with any task, if it is a physical incarnation. And how much confidence and an irresistible charm in his eyes!
