too many action movies today just feel too generic especially in the plot and just feel very direct to dvd

I agree fully, but I think these days things have gone too far down the "Less is more" route and that's why we don't get iconic hero themes anymore.

Welcome To The Punch looks pretty good. The script made one of those top unfilmed script lists back in 2010.

I wish Eric Bana would get more action work... seems he's just dropped off the radar recently.

He's playing a soldier alongside Mark Wahlberg in Lone Survivor.

Speaking of Lone Survivors, Dwayne Johnson's Snitch is actually doing well at the box office. Looks like he escaped the action holocaust unscathed.
