    I recently watched this movie and it got me to thinking. It goes non-stop action from begining to end and really defines Arnold's career. I can't think of a better Action movie right now. Is Terminator 2: Judgement Day the best Action movie ever made?

    It's the best Hollywood action movie ever made.

    Nope.

    Top 5 yes, but the very best .... no.

    In terms of pure action I would rate Die Hard, Aliens and Predator higher.

    Die Hard is still number one. T-2 is in my top 10. The asylum stuff in the middle drags the film down.

    Die Hard never lets up.

    I'm still researching that, :) but let me tell you that Asian action movies are on average superior to Hollywood ones.

    As for Aliens, I don't think there is enough action in it to qualify as an action movie.

    I like The Terminator slightly more than T2...plus there are a few other action movies I feel are better, but T2 I will agree is an elite action movie.

    The action movies I enjoy most are MI-2, Con Air, Die Hard with a Vengeance and Kiss of the Dragon.

    You're right on Aliens. Of all the Alien movies I still think Aliens 3 is the best.

    A good action movie that doesn't usually get mentioned is
    'The Long Kiss Goodnight.' An absolutely underated movie starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson.

    Huh, is Terminator 2 the best Die Hard ever? What a silly question to ask. Die Hard is the best Die Hard ever.

    I'm still waiting for the DVD to arrive. Regardless of the action, it's proberbaly Samuel L. Jackson's funniest performance ever.

    Def Top 5. Prolly not #1 but pretty damn close. I have to agree with almost everyone that Die hard is the best action movie ever.

    It's definitely in my top 10, and probably in my top 5 action movies, but it's not #1. Guess what? Die Hard isn't #1, either.
