10 Action Movies From The 90s That Still Get Our Adrenaline Pumping

- Page 1

While most people think of the 80s as the pinnacle of action movies, the 90s were definitely no slouch either. The scripts got smarter, the editing got tighter, and most of all, the action itself really had to step up its game. Here are 10 movies that prove that 90s action movies are still amazing today.

Léon: The Professional

The touching story of a young girl whose parents are killed by crooked cops, only for her to be taken in by a mafia hitman. It's one of the most underrated movies of the 90s and has amazing performances by Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, and a 12-year-old Natalie Portman.

The Rock

Michael Bay's best movie teams up Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery against a group of U.S. Marines that have hijacked a biological weapon and fortified the island of Alcatraz, and the results are still awesome.

Air Force One

Harrison Ford is the President of the United States, Gary Oldman is the Russian insurgent who has hijacked his plane, and Ford wants him off his plane right now. Still awesome after all these years.

Hard Boiled

John Woo's masterpiece and the movie that defined Hong Kong action cinema. It's often referred to as a "bullet ballet," and it's easy to see why.

The movies get even crazier from here...

10 Creepy (And Kooky) Facts About "The Addams Family"

We were first introduced to Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Grandmama, Wendesday, Pugsley and Thing in 1938 where they appeared in The New Yorker as a series of cartoons by Charles Addams. In the mid 60s The Addams Family lasted for two seasons as a sitcom and then two more as a Saturday morning cartoon in the 70s.
