The Ultimate Arnold Action Movies

The Last Stand

Who's to say whether The Last Stand can live up to the legacy of the rest of Arnold's classic action canon, but adding funny co-stars Johnny Knoxville and Luis Guzman should help. Plus, the "How are you, Sheriff?" quip is good - and apt.

  • Conan the Barbarian Conan the Barbarian
    Back in 1982, Arnold's biceps were bigger than most people's torsos. This classic clip and narration just points out how the swordplay, pumpitude and absolute ridiculousness of it all still rules.
  • The Terminator / Terminator franchise The Terminator / Terminator franchise
    This is where the "I'll be back" was immortalized (and enhanced in the equally excellent follow-up T2). The sci-fi/action genre would never be the same.
  • Commando Commando
    Now granted, we wish we had a better clip to show for Commando than this cheesy VHS commercial...but it's also a good ol' nostalgic reminder that back in the '80s, tapes like this went for the low, low price of $29.98.
  • Predator Predator
    Despite Adrien Brody's best attempts to make Ah-nuld-esque in the completely unnecessary but highly watchable Predators, we can't forget the original classic, which finds Arnold in fine form going mano a mano with one badass alien from outer space and his wicked interstellar dreadlocks.
  • The Running Man The Running Man
    The spandex suits haven't aged well. But we love watching Arnold and his underground freedom-loving buddies taking on guys like Buzzsaw and Subzero in MMA-style grudge matches to the death - all playing in a reality TV show that doesn't seem too far-fetched from current reality.
  • Total Recall Total Recall
    The Colin Farrell remake has nothing on Arnold's original sci-fi/action classic, which finds our hero trapped on Mars with a crazy case of amnesia, a new identity and one p.o.'d wife in the form of seductress Sharon Stone.
  • True Lies True Lies
    After successfully blowing up the sci-fi action genre standard with their Terminator series, what did James Cameron and Arnold do for an encore? Try this ever-amusing homage to James Bond-type spy movies, with some domestic humor and jolly good action set-pieces thrown in to boot. If The Last Stand proves successful, here's hoping for one more successful action movie reunion...
