It is an age old question, What is the greatest Action Movie of all time? Many people will have many different reasons for choosing many different films, but here at MovieMuse we wanted to settle the debate once and for all. So over on our World Cup of Movies Facebook group we ran a head to head knockout competition that pitted the 128 best action films against one another in a fight to the metaphorical death. You can find out how we came up with the 128 films here.
The films were all then fed into a bracket generating mincing machine and voting took place on the facebook page, with well over 11,000 votes cast!. Below you can see the full draw and all of the results for each of the matches.
As you will see, it was a tense battle with pre-tournament favourite Die Hard being knocked out in the semi finals. But it was Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley who was triumphant as Aliens took the title of Action Movie World Cup Champion!
