The Last Stand
Only one thing stands between the merciless leader of a drug cartel as he busts out of prison and breaks for the border: a small town sheriff played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville co-star; Jee-woon Kim directs.

After the explosions have gone off and the smoke has cleared, most great action movies boil down to a showdown between two men willing to do anything to come out on top. Whether it be a special agent versus a serial killer, a graduate student versus a sadistic Nazi, or a pair of dueling terminators, these heroes and villains give it all they've got. And the results are not for the faint of heart.

I Saw the Devil (2011) Also directed by Jee-woon Kim, this Korean revenge thriller delivers a powerful and harrowing portrait of the devastating effect vengeance can have on the human soul. When his fiancée is murdered by a merciless serial killer, secret agent Kim Soo-hyeon not only seeks out this sadistic psycho, but also makes a sick game of tracking him, wounding him and setting him free to be hunted once more. As the two devolve into a demonic game of cat and mouse, the body count rises and it becomes harder and harder to root for the film's hero. Byung-hun Lee and Min-sik Choi co-star.

Marathon Man (1976) Dustin Hoffman stars as a grad student forced into a world of espionage when his CIA agent brother (Roy Scheider) is murdered. Conspiracy, diamonds and a Nazi who employs crude dentistry as an interrogation technique all come into play in this classic thriller. Laurence Olivier co-stars; John Schlesinger directs.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Arnold Schwarzenegger reprises the role that made him a legend in this sequel that pits his killer cyborg—now reprogrammed to save the life of John Connor (Edward Furlong)—against a more hi-tech and deadly model, the T-1000. It gets all kind of crazy, and now streaming is a special edition that boasts 16 minutes of unseen footage and other extras. Linda Hamilton and Robert Patrick co-star; James Cameron directs.
