The 1980s set the bar high for action films, and it was easy to see why. Non-stop action filled with visceral gun fights, brutal deaths, massive explosions, iconic one-liners and badass protagonists proved to be a recipe for success at the box office, and turned many actors and directors into household names. But the 1990s proved that this trend was only going to continue, as it produced some of the greatest action films of all time.
It was also an intriguing time for action films as studios wanted more of the same blockbuster success, but this time gave them bigger budgets and introduced us to new actors that would become the biggest action heroes of today. What’s more is that films were starting to use both practical and CGI effects, producing mixed results.
But the path to cinematic glory remained the same; give the audience the same exhilarating entertainment they had always enjoyed, and you would be swimming in the cash.
So if you are in the mood to watch something that will blow your socks off, you will certainly not be disappointed with this list of the greatest action films the 1990s had to offer.
I am an open minded guy who is always up for trying new things. I love playing video games, watching and critiquing the latest films and tv shows and a big fan of football. P.S, I hope you are all doing well during these challenging times and that you have a great day.
