Time Out's 100 Best Action Movies. Selected by a collection of Top 10 ballots cast by various critics, actors, directors, and stuntpeople. Kill Bill parts I and II were counted as a single film in the list, but are split here on iCM, hence 101.
"There’s no need to fear subtitles when so much of what Hollywood has come to love (pop-cultural patter, epic swordplay, urban ennui, etc.) has its original source in a distant land. But where to begin? Let us be your (extremely opinionated) guides. Our only ground rules for this foreign-language list: no silent films (sorry, Metropolis), and no movies from Britain, Australia or other English-speaking countries. We’re bound to have forgotten a raft of classics—how could we not, with a whole globe to choose from?"

It would seem a no-brainer: Combine the world's most revered dramatist with today's most popular medium. Alas, translating the Bard to the big screen has proved trickier than anyone ever thought. In ranking the 25 most successful attempts, TONY tapped its Film and Theater experts. Their only ground rule: No plots about the playwright himself would be eligible. (Sorry, Shakespeare in Love fans). But any adaptations of the plays themselves, loose or faithful, were fair game.
So if top-25 lists be the food of love, read on.

Quote from the source:
"They get a bad rap from snobs, but don’t mess with action movies—they’re pumped up, loaded with ammo and in your face like Arnold Schwarzenegger on a bad day. Truth be told, no one can live solely on Woody Allen movies or animation alone. We need explosions periodically. Big ones. Preferably accompanied by catchphrases and squealing electric guitars. With crucial contributions from Hong Kong and France, the genre has a global richness that sneaks up on you like a swarthy henchman with a knife clenched between his teeth. And when we arrived at action’s ’80s movies heyday, when Hollywood stars ruled the roost, our research was euphoric. We’ve polled over 50 experts in the field, from essential directors like Die Hard’s John McTiernan to the actual folks in the line of fire, such as Machete himself, Danny Trejo. Critics and experts have weighed in, too."
The list has 102 titles because Kill Bill was counted as one entry
