Some of the best action film franchises started in the 80's.  Ranker has an ongoing rating of the Best Action Movies of the 80's.

But I've noticed that the list lacks the classic Patrick Swayze / Sam Elliott brawling classic Roadhouse.  Say what!?

Roadhouse had it all, boozy fights, smart talkin', naughty love scenes, and one big explosion.  Yet it doesn't crack the top 10 in this list.

So what do you think is missing from this list of the Best Action Movies of the 80's?

  1. Die Hard, 1988
  2. Raiders of the Lost Ark, 1981
  3. The Terminator, 1984
  4. Lethal Weapon, 1987
  5. Predator, 1987
  6. First Blood, 1982
  7. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1984
  8. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, 1989
  9. Aliens, 1986
  10. Star Wars - Episode Six: Return of the Jedi, 1983
