The best Action Heroes command a load of zeroes on their paychecks. Action is a big box office draw. Many Action Movies are rated PG-13. So, action movies often are nice family friendly films.
You will find many Action Heroes in our list of Top 10 Actors. Action films require a high budget. Itís rare to see a low budget Action movie.
You know it takes money to make money. Think of Action flicks as an investment. Letís say you bought Google stock.
Now, imagine buying stock in Bruce Willis like you would Google. You want to look at Bruce Willis as an investment. This is how the entertainment industry works.
I love action. You are hardly ever disappointed. Action Heroes have special stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There is a strong bond between Action Heroes and Zeroes.
I vividly recall watching the original Robocop on several Saturdays. In the 90s, Robocop received massive syndication. Unfortunately, for the movie purist, TIVO was not invented yet.
You were forced to watch the commercials that came attached with the featured presentation. We did not mind the advertisements, because every now and again we needed popcorn and a can of Coke.
Technology still remains a major component of Action Movies. Itís a simple fact that Action makes movie executives billions of dollars. Bruce Willis is the ultimate Action Hero.
Look at the Die Hard franchise. As you will see, Willis has dominated decade after decade in the Action genre. Not very many other Action actors have lasted as long.
Bruce Willis is underrated. Although he earns a wad of zeroes, he is underpaid. As you may already know, Willis commanded a percentage of the Six Sense. He clearly made a calculated move.
Timing is everything in entertainment. Bruce Willis is a timeless actor. If you placed him in films from the fifties and sixties, he Ďd still be popular.
100 years from now, Bruce Willis films will still be popular. Mark my words. I canít even express how much money Bruce Willis is worth. If you look anything like Willis, youíre welcome in Hollywood.
Another Action movie legend is Sylvester Stallone. I admire his Rambo movies. A lot like Bruce, Sly has owned the box office results. Itís safe to say Mr. Stallone is a senior citizen, but he does not act his age.
He still is pushing steel and pumping iron. And, he keeps on producing high quality productions such as the Expendables. I enjoy the Expendables because it is nostalgic.
Those Expendable actors put in a ton of work at the gym and on the silver screen. Thatís why Stallone makes seven to eight zeroes per movie. He is the darn movie executive.
Watch the Rambo II trailer from the 80's.
What about Rocky? Everybody loves Rocky. How many box office knockouts has Rocky had?
Next, is Jean-Claude Van Damme? He is an international Action icon. Whatís more, he practices what he preaches. Van Damme is a martial artist master.
Heís a man you donít want to argue with. He can paralyze his foe in one quick hand movement. Like Stallone, Van Damme does not act his age.
His global appeal is brilliantly marketed in this Volvo commercial.
Itís easy to tell he is true to his craft. I like his authentic nature.
If I excluded Arnold Schwarzenegger I wouldnít be able to call myself a journalist. I truly think he is half man and half machine. Prove me wrong.
P.S. He'll be back!
