Are we talking about good ole modern day, American/European style ass kickin action movies or are we lumping Sci Fi and martial arts movies into the same catergory, too? Because, for me, movies like Dirty Harry and Streetfighter don’t belong in the same catergory even though there similarities in the “bad assness” of each character.


#11

we could lump genres or seperate them



whatever u people want



Dirty Harry is more a cop movie along with leathal weapon
