The 80’s were a time of great prosperity it was also a time of great action movies. The 80’s gave us Rocky, Rambo, Indiana Jones, some of the most iconic figures in modern history.  Here are 8 of our favorite movies :

Black Rain

Once upon a time, Michael Douglas was one cool son of a bitch, well he’s still a little cool. This is a classic movie made in 1989, buddy cop with Andy Garcia. They bust a Yakazu boss, and have to take him back to Japan, loose him then tear up Japan trying to find him again.

Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark

The first and with out a doubt the best in the series, Harrison ford takes on the Nazi war machine while trying to track down the Ark of the Covenant.

Rambo – First Blood

Sly Stallone at his best as Rambo, caught in a way at home. There is nothing like watching Rambo cut his way through hundreds of local police and national guard.

Red Heat

A classic Arnie movie, about a soviet cop that goes to New York to track down a soviet criminal, Jim Belushi is the New York cop that partners with him.

Lethal Weapon

A classic Mel Gibson movie before he went crazy, plays a crazy cop (irony much). He partners with Danny Glover tracking down a drug smuggler. Classic 80’s action all the way.

Beverly Hills Cop

Eddie Murphy at his peak, plays a Detroit cop that goes to Beverly hills to track down his friends murderer Its a great blend of action and comedy.


1987 action classic, set in the near future, Peter Weller plays a cop that is nearly killed in the line of duty. He is taken in by a special department and turned into a Cyborg. In turn he seeks revenge on the criminals that tried to kill him.

Lone Wolf McQuade

Chuck Norris has to make the list. As a Texas ranger that goes after gun smugglers it ranks as one the best Chuck Norris movies from the 80’s. Well this one and maybe Missing in Action.
