Action

The enduring popularity of the action movie has drenched the genre in cliche yet glorious invention abounds around the globe - fighting is the international language. Fashionable styles of film-making come and go but action movies just change their shoes and remain centre-stage.

Are you ready to rumble? Are you feeling lucky, Sir/Madame? Our suggestions for a hearty evening of action are listed below. Pictured: Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang springs into action.
