I'm a day early because tomorrow I have an interview in the dead of morning so that's that.

Anyways, this poll is self-explanatory but you notice there's no Schwarzenegger. That's cause he's the best and I wanted to make this poll interesting.

I'm going with Stallone if for the sheer fact that he certainly the most ambitious of the bunch even if he fails most of the time.

I'll edge with norris. He's a best actor than all, but Van-Damme proved he can act with JCVD

Anyone else think that Van Damme used to request that each roundhouse kick must be replayed at least twice?

I remember seeing Double Impact in theatres. "Double the Van Damme, double the Van Dammage."

Norris made a few decent flicks.

His best ever IMO was Code of Silence.

Seagal made a few decent ones as well. His best IMO were Above the Law and Under Siege.


All three were directed by Andy Davis who actually had talent.

Most of Van Dammes/Seagal/Norris movies were directed by hacks.

Thats how "Arnold" was able to distinguish himself from these three. He always attached himself to directors with talent.

"Old School"?

No Bronson or Eastwood? Reynolds?? I'm noting an absense of Jackie Chan as well...


Incomplete, please resubmit for further eval...

Someone suggeste Bruce Lee. Although a great martial artist, i found his acting to be very wooden.
What about
Mel Gibson. He started in action movies
John Wayne. the origional action star.

I voted for Stallone. He is the best of the list at creating depth for his charactors, especially true of rocky and the first and last rambo films.

I think that you should have added Arnold. It might not have been as clear cut as you thought.
