If You Can Name All These Action Stars Then You're Officially A Tough Guy

While most girls love romantic comedies, guys have a soft spot for action films. That makes perfect sense. After all, according to Wikipedia, action films are characterized by protagonists being thrust into a series of complications. Overcoming these complications often requires the use of force, physical feats, extended fighting, shootouts, and an exciting car chase or two. Naturally, most guys love all that.

Action films usually feature an inventive hero who struggles against incredible odds but is almost never defeated by the villain. While it is true that action scenes have always been an important element in movies, it was actually not until the 70s, when special effects became more common, that the action film genre was properly developed.
