How did we choose the 100 best action movies of all time? We went straight to the experts and polled people who have created some of the greatest action films ever made. We asked each of them for their ten favorite action movies. From there we calculated the top 100 overall best action movies. Here, you'll find the personal selections of film critics and experts including Grady Hendrix (co-founder of the New York Asian Film Festival) and Joshua Rothkopf (film editor of Time Out New York).
