Songfactor's Top 10 Movies {Action Violence}

Recommended Posts

Shawna, I submit for your approval "Training Day" as your other nominee. You pretty much can't go wrong with Denzel. He won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Alonzo Harris, a bad @$$ dirty cop breaking in a rookie (Ethan Hawke) on the streets of LA. Very violent and gritty, but an awesome movie.

Absolutely!!!! :thumbsup:

Okay sold.

1. Silence of the Lambs (stolen from MC, who voluntarily gave it to me, so I suppose the stealing part was easier than expected)

2. Training Day

Now, if either of these places, I get all the glory. Just remember that.

I'm not a big fan of gratuitous violence, so I tend not to watch movies like Scarface and Natural Born Killers. If the violence is more action oriented like in Die Hard or is presented in the context of "black comedy" I enjoy it much more.
