    After dithering over what constitutes an action movie, here's my list. I've tried not to include films already mentioned in ETA's original thread.


    The Rock.
    Thunderball.
    You Only Live Twice.
    Enter The Dragon.
    Taken.
    The Bourne Ultimatum.
    Day of the Jackal.
    Assault on Precinct 13. (1976 version)
    V for Vendetta.
    Terminator 2.
    Kill Bill 1&2.
    Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
    Hunt for Red October.
    Die Hard.

    Not sure if it counts as "action" but I just spent a couple of pleasant hours watching The Martian, it's Apollo 13 with knobs on, definitely recommended.


    The Rudgate Ruby Mild helped as well .
