Kick Butt

Many of you already know that Grant loves action movies!!! What some of you don't know is that I like action movies too!! Grant lucked out when he got this hot chick who loves to play video games and watch action movies with him. Lucky man! At least he thinks so. I thought it would be fun to list some of my favorite "Kick Butt" action super stars. Originally I was going to rate them but that would be too difficult since they are all awesome. However..........the first on my list is hands down the most awesomest action hero of them all!!!! And the winner is.....

1. Daniel Craig as James Bond in Casino Royale and Quantum of SolaceJames Bond rocks. I always liked James Bond but I didn't LOVE James Bond until Casino Royale. That movie is awesome! I could watch it everyday and not get sick of it. Not only is the action amazing but Daniel Craig is hot and the story line is interesting. Quantum of Solace is good too but Grant and I both agree that Casino is better. Daniel Craig is the best (and hottest) James Bond yet. I highly recommend these movies!

2. Jason Statham as Frank Martin in Transporter 1,2, and 3 I'm under the impression that he does most of the fighting scenes himself which is pretty amazing. He, like Daniel Craig, is darn good looking and in incredible shape for his age. These are good movies that I also recommend. The 3rd one (in theaters now) is really good. I've seen it most recently so it is my favorite because it is fresh on my mind. I remember the other 2 being great too!!

3. Jet LiYou can't talk action movies without mentioning Jet Li. Let's face it.....the guy is awesome. He was like freakin' 3 years old when he became a wushu master or something. There are way too many movies for me to just pick one so I had Grant pick his favorite based on action and fighting. Grant says that hands down Fist of Legend has some of the best fighting scenes. The above picture is during the last and best fighting scene in the movie. He does some pretty cool stuff with his belt! Since this is mostly my blog I wanted to mention one of my favorite Jet Li movies... Fearless
I just like it. Everyone should see it. If you haven't seen a Jet Li movie then see this one. It is really good.
The Enforcer is another one I like. It is cute! Jet Li's character has a son that kick butts too. They fight together which is so adorable. I recommend this one too!

4. Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones Look at that hot scruff! I had a huge crush on Indiana Jones when I was a little girl. I always wanted him to save me with his whip and kiss me in the end. That never happened! Harrison looks his best in Raiders of the Lost Ark but my favorite story is the Last Crusade. He's just fabulous!

5. Takeshi Kaneshiro as Miyamoto in Returner
He's so beautiful. The movie has some good action but I mostly like to watch this movie to see him. He definitely has my vote for hottest Asian in the world!!!

6. Thomas Jane as Frank Castle in The PunisherThis movie is SWEET. The beginning is really sad but the ending has a big bang. The Punisher is based on a Comic book and the amazing part is that this hero is a human that bleeds. Most comic book characters are either a mutant or alien or have been bitten by a spider or been some kind of experimental mistake, but the Punisher is a breathing, bleeding human that wants his revenge. He Rocks!!!

7. Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight He is the best Batman in my opinion! Another comic book character that is human and kicks butt. I just love how he is so clever and risks his life to save others. Outstanding!!! Christian Bale as John Preston in Equilibrium is good too! The movie is a little different but the action is great. They used a martial art form using guns that kinda rocks.

8. Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum
If I had to pick my favorite I would choose The Bourne Supremacy. They are all good though. The action in these movies is incredible. I'm literally on the edge of my seat the whole time. Matt Damon did good when he agreed to do these movies!!!

9. Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47 in Hitman
I've only seen this movie once, but I remember really liking it. Good fighting!

10. Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in 24
This is the best TV show!! This show is so suspenseful and wonderful. My favorite Season is Season 2! I love the characters and the story line. Season 2 has the best president too. I totally recommend that everyone watch this show. You need to start with Season 1 if you want to understand what is going on.

11. Luke Goss as Prince Nuada in Hellboy II The Golden Army
Yes he's the bad guy but this man can fight!! The only thing I can think of to say about this movie is...... Awesome! Everyone needs to see this movie and watch this guy. I just love it!

12. Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
YUMMY! The Lord of the Rings is my FAVORITE MOVIE!!!!! The action in these movies is different because they fight with swords, staffs and arrows but Aragorn is the man non the less. So masculine....mmmm...

13. Antonio Banderas as Alejandro Murrieta/Zorro in The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro
I saw The Mask of Zorro for the first time in my Spanish class my Freshman year of High School. I fell in love with the the character! Everyone loves Zorro right?

14. Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker in Spider-man 1,2 and 3
Spider-man is my favorite Comic book character ever! I just love to watch him swing from buildings with his webs and flip and spiral through the air! Fabulous! He's pretty awesome as the black Spider-man too!

15. Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell in The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Brendan Fraser was my High School crush. I watched The Mummy almost everyday. You could ask my mom. Not the most action packed movie but Rick is Hot and manly!!!!

16. Vin Diesel as Richard B. Riddick in Chronicles of Riddick
I had to put a Vin Diesel movie in my blog. This one is pretty good! Vin knows how to do action!

17. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Beck in The Rundown Not only is this movie action packed but it has some comedy. Seann William Scott brings in some comedy relief. This is a great movie. I recommend that everyone see this.

18. Clive Owen as Smith in Shoot 'Em Up
I actually haven't seen this movie but the trailer looked awesome. I like Clive so I wanted to put him in my blog. Clive Owen as Dwight in Sin City. I haven't seen this movie either but I liked this picture better than his other one!

19. Jim Caviezel as Edmond Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo
Not much of an action movie but I love how Edmond plans and executes his revenge. He goes from knowing nothing about fighting to hurting everyone that hurt him in his past!
20. Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo in Rambo (All of them)
I had to put in a legend. Let's face it....Stallone is an all time favorite of every American!

So these are only some of my favorite action movie characters. This blog would go on forever if I mentioned them all. Hope you enjoyed!!

P.S. Grant is downloading Shoot 'Em Up and Sin City so I can decide if I really like them. I'll keep you all posted.

Fun Post. I think Harrison Ford was hotter in Star Wars, but he is still good looking in the earlier Indiana Jones' movies. Fearless is my favorite Jet Li movie too. It was sooooo amazing. You have good taste in men, and Grant is a pretty lucky fella ;)

You crack me up. I've never thought that much about action heroes, but I think that Indiana Jones would be my favorite. He's funny without trying to be funny and I like that. Harrison Ford was actually pretty good looking back then. My favorite male movie star of all time is (was) Paul Newman. Have you seen pictures of him when he was young? What eyes!
