Genre Defining Action Movies

Action Movies - Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino’s name is synonymous with the action movie genre. During the 1990s he wrote, directed and produced a number of action movies that have since gone on to define the genre. Classics such as Reservoir Dogs (1993) and Pulp Fiction (1995) feature some truly gory combat sequences moulded together by a clever plot.

In 2012, Tarantino won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay with his heavy metal western hit Django Unchained.

We happen to think Quentin is an expert in the action movies field, so we have set the bar high. Which directors will outscore his work? Which films will topple the classics? Check out our reviews below:
