It is hard to believe that the greatest movie spy of all time needed a comeback. But Daniel Craig stepped in and made it one of the most acclaimed James Bond films of all time. Casino Royale was an origin story for the suave superspy. It added new layers to the character and made it feel like it had real stakes. This movie is a masterpiece of modern action, and not only in Bond's universe.

Casino Royale

With their first collaboration in this action film, Sergio Leone, an Italian filmmaker, and Clint Eastwood (a young American actor), would forever alter the Western genre. For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly followed.

A Fistfull of Dollars

One of the most loved period action films ever made was the first Best Picture nominee of the new millennium.

Gladiator

In the mid-'90s, the legend of 007 was in pretty bad shape as everyone shrugged at Timothy Dalton's portrayal of James Bond. This film, starring Pierce Brosnan, revived the screen legend in an era that continues to be relevant today. Brosnan's Bond movie that is best features Sean Bean as the character who tries to stop a rogue MI6 agent.

Goldeneye

Action! Although this may be the third James Bond movie, it is undoubtedly the best. It's the film that cemented Sean Connery’s iconic portrayal as 007. It is based on the 1959 Ian Fleming novel. Honor Blackman stars as Pussy Galore, and Gert Frobe plays the title character. Gert Frobe is one of Bond's most famous villains.

Goldfinger

Only one can exist. Christopher Lambert plays Connor MacLeod. He was born in Scotland in 16th century, and was killed there. However, he later discovered that he is an immortal and is now part of a secret war to ensure only one highlander remains. It's all a bit silly, but the movie was a huge cult hit thanks to Lambert's and Sean Connery’s hilarious performances.

Highlander

It's a perfect mix of sci-fi action and old-fashioned disaster film. It is now a key turning point in Hollywood blockbuster history. In 1996, it was the highest-grossing film in the world and remains a cultural landmark. Although it hasn't been perfect, it is an important chapter in the history of action movies.

Independence Day

This remake of the action film classic Michael Caine, 1969, was starring Charlize Theron and Mark Wahlberg. It tells the story of a group of thieves who attempt to steal gold from a former colleague. While this film shares little in common with the original, it does feature the action movie fan's favorite car chase fun. This blockbuster is a thrilling ride with great actors. Sometimes speed is all that's important.
