Arnold Swartzeneggar was in so many action movies in the 80's it was diffucult to narrow it down to just one but this one paved the way for an entire genre and huge franchise that still makes millions in 2017.

4. Lethal Weapon (1986)
One word, Riggs! Possibly the best Christmas ever. A psycho cop with a death wish partnered with an old school family man close to his pension. A classic mix. The fight between Hollywood's most insane actors, Mel Gibson and Gary Busey is enough to put this movie on the list.

5. Bloodsport (1988)
Jean-Claude Van Damme plays Frank Dux, a kickboxer who enters the Kumite'. He beats up just about everyone including a crime boss. There's also a montage where he's kicking trees and doing the splits. He even beat the dreaded Chong Li while blinded by sand.
