Nite Owl Joe's Top 50 Action movies of all time

I'm going to try and stay away from movies that overlap with other genres a lot- especially sci-fi. There will be some sparing exceptions, but hopefully not the same ones everyone else always makes.

IN PROGRESS.

Honorable mentions:
The Boxer from Shantung (1972)
The Street Fighter (1974)
Kickboxer (1989)
Stone Cold (1991)
Joshua Tree (1993)
Ninja Assassin (2009)
The Villainess (2017)
