One-Man Army Movies

    [SOLVED] One-Man Army Movies

    What is your favorite one-man army movie?

    I think mine would have to be Rambo: First Blood Part II. You know, the one where he invades a POW/MIA, post-war, Vietnamese concentration camp sporting a red bandana and single-handedly firing a two-man bazooka. Needless to say, he kicked some @ss.


    P.S. Has anyone else heard that Sylvester Stallone is currently writing the script for Rambo IV? I want to know whom he would fight. I'll bet he goes after Osama for the $25,000,000 reward!

    I'm thinking it''s about time he fought himself in Rocky 6- Rambo meets rocky. I think he could actually make it work;)

    I've been hearing a buzz about rocky 6 for a while, but nothing solid yet.

    I liked Commando with Arnold. Not trying to spell his last name. Anyhow, i loved the final battle scenes where he's coming for his girl. If you notice, he kills the same guy like 30 times. And the almost porno quality acting skills, what more could you want?

    I'd choose Terminator 1. I liked the way Arnold Schwarzenegger just drove his car right into the sitting area, strode in and blew the brains out of every policemen in the station.

    Clint Eastwood in, "The Unforgiven."

    Big Trouble In Little China. "It's all in the reflexes."

    Escape From New York and Escape from LA.

    Anything with Bruce Lee.

    Army Of Darkness, the third in the Evil Dead series.

    It's not a movie, only a book so far, but I also recommend Armor by John Steakley. https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/...f=sr_1_1/002-6076318-3062431?v=glance&s=books

    Another book I recommend, non-fiction, is The Edge Of The Sword, by Captain Anthony Farrar-Hockley. https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/...f=sr_1_2/002-6076318-3062431?v=glance&s=books

    Greetings !
    There are too many and I like'em all !
    Of the Rambo series I likethe first most, but the second looks
    best of all (hmm... the third is such total BS, but its nice
    to watch). I like all the Rocky series, the best were 1 and 3.
    I love all the Beverly Hills Cop movies, Total Recall, all
    Terminator movies, all Star Wars movies all Star Trek movies
    except ST10 (I would kill the script writer if I could, anyway
    I'm just ignoring this movie as though it was never part of
    Star Trek but just somebody's sick joke), all movies with Chuck
    Norris and his Walker series, Running Man, Armageddon, Fifth
    Element, all Van Damme movies - Blood Sport, Kickboxer, Double Team, The Quest and more, all Die Hard movies (if I HAD to name the BEST one man army movie I'd probably choose Die Hard (1) ), all Bruce Lee movies, ALL Jacky Chan's movies, other Hong Kong made movies,
    Steven Segal aspecialy in the first Siege movie and the one
    where he takes on Jamaican drug dealers and MANY MANY MANY MORE !
    (As they say: I live for this **** !)

    The most realistic combat movie I ever saw was probably
    Black Hawk Down, it was great too (but I don't think it's
    healthy to watch it often nor do I want to).

    Live long and prosper.
