New: Top 30 Best Action Movies - 2010 (List) Kaboom. Nothing does it like a rocket launcher blowing up an fuel tanker on a freeway.

Here are the biggest and best action movies of 2010.

- MARCH -

Green Zone
Starring: Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Amy Ryan
Director: Paul Greengrass
Release Date: 12th March 2010

New: Top 30 Best Action Movies 2010
Matt Damon and Bourne director Greengrass re-team for this thriller set in the chaotic early days of the Iraqi War. Damon is sent to look for WMDs, but discovers an elaborate cover-up. The trailer made it appear very Bourne-esque, with Damon going rogue and talking tough, let’s hope the movie has something fresh to say on an old topic.

- APRIL -

Clash Of The Titans
Starring: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton
Director: Louis Leterrier
Release Date: 2nd April 2010

Top 30 Best Action Movie - 2010
Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, he volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. With the other Sam Worthington-starrer Avatar doing quite well it was decided to push this back a week to give it the 3-D treatment. Louis Leterrier (Incredible Hulk) is a capable action director, so expect this to be a solid effort. A remake of the 1981 minor classic, famous for its stop-motion creature fx.

Repo Men
Starring: Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber, Alice Braga, Carice van Houten
Director: Miguel Sapochnik
Release Date: 2nd April 2010

Top 30 Best Action Films 2010
In the near future artificial organs can be bought on credit. If you can’t pay, they’re repossessed by force. When Jude Law, a repo man himself, can’t make the payments on the hair transplant heart he has purchased he goes on the run, pursued by his former colleagues. Bizarrely this is the same plot as Repo The Genetic Opera from two years ago, but without the singing. This has a first time director and great actors known for slumming it, so it’s hard to say which way this will go.


Kick-Ass
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Nicolas Cage, Mark Strong
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Release Date: 16th April 2010

Top Action Movies 2010
A high school nerd decides to become a superhero even though he has no special powers or even any athletic ability. Despite getting serious hurt, his antics soon inspire others youngsters to follow in his footsteps. This is one of the hottest tickets this Spring, with its energetic, risky tone (including child assassins blowing off legs). Adapted from the Mark Millar graphic novel, Brits might be interested to know the screenplay was written by Jonathan Ross’s wife. It’s already got excellent advance reviews.

Machete
Starring: Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Steven Seagal
Director: Ethan Maniquis, Robert Rodriguez
Release Date: 16th April 2010 Update – Moved To 3rd September

2010 Action Movies List
The not-as-funny-as-it-should-have-been fake trailer from Grindhouse gets its own movie. Danny Trejo is leading man for once as a Mexican mercenary on US soil who takes the murder contracts the locals won’t. Double-crossed on a job and left for dead, he sets out bring vengeance to those who betrayed him. Robert De Niro plays a corrupt senator. Steven Seagal plays a drug lord. Should be good fun.

    Repo Men looks like something that Johnny Lee Miller should be starring in. I predict that it will stink like a butt.

    Alright, is it me or does Ralph Fiennes play like every devil or major demon character in every movie?

    And also these MMA movies about fighting (Fighting, Never back Down, and now Warrior?!)and stuff have to stop coming out. There not interesting at all.

    Of the top of my head, Tron, Inception, Last Airbender (better not suck it up M. Night Shyamalammypancakebatter), my boy Harry Potstickers. I’ll take Prince of Persia w/ a GI Joe approach, I expect it to suck but maybe it’ll surprise me.

    Oh yeah and Iron Man 2 + Clash of the Titans will… be… SICK! I guarantee it.

    And Kick-Ass too!

    … and A-Team, Robin Hood and Predators might get my time if I’m bored and/or if I get to the theatre early enough.
