    Greatest action star

    Who is it? Arnold? Sly? Cruise? Chan?

    What guy do you like, and why?

    Stallone.

    He's been my favorite actor since I was a kid when I began watching the Rocky and Rambo films. Those two characters are exactly why that he's the greatest of all-time. Everyone, everywhere, knows who those characters are.

    I’m pretty sure I’ve said it before but Willis. Yeah yeah he doesn’t add up to those guys, but his movies were so much better.

    Arnold for me.

    I grew up on his films as a direct opposite to the films my dad would watch (Segal). I hated Segal because his movies felt boring and he always untouchable. Like where's the tension or interest? Sure Arnold was a machine but dude would take an *** kicking before he delivered it and make you laugh along the way. I still really enjoy his movies now for the most part, save for the ****** post T2 terminator movies.

    Far from a connoisseur of the genre but Bruce Willis was the first guy that came to mind for me.

    Willis is a solid choice.

    My vote would have to be Jackie Chan. Love his mixture of action and comedy, He also does most if not all of his own stunts and that has to be a plus.

    I am 44, so I grew up on 80s action flicks. But I am also a martial arts fanatic, so Chan, Jet Li, Donnie Yen, and many others are great.

    As far as best movies, I think Sly might take it. Rambo/Rocky series, Demolition Man, Cliffhanger, Assassins, and others. Arnold not far behind.

    As far as martial arts stars, Jet Li and Donnie Yen to me are the best, but Chan's stunt work and acrobatics are insane.

    If I had to pick one, it would be Jackie Chan, because he does it all. His movies have action, and he is the best athlete cinema has seen probably.

    But man, soooooooooooo many great ones. Willis is in arguably the best action movie ever, Die Hard. But then what about Raiders of the Lost Ark for example?

    Why do you say Stallone is unwatchable? I'm interested here.

    I hate both of them myself.

    Keanu is #1 in my book too.
