Action Movie Bad Asses Come in All Shapes & Sizes…

…according to the Action Movie Freak, that is.
If you’re an action movie fanatic, then you are going to LOVE this blog. Of course, Rain made it onto the bad ass list, but what impressed me the most was the effort that went into compiling all of these lists of action movie heroes.
Click on the image below to take a look at Rain’s list, and then work your way through the rest of the site. Trust me. It is well worth your time.
Interestingly, Rain is listed under the “Regular Joe” section of the Bad Ass page. At first, I was like, huh? But I think I finally got where the blogger was coming from.
Although, Rain’s Raizo is a bad ass, he’s not that typical, buffed-up, break-em-in-half hulk-like-monster that one might expect from your typical action figure-type. Ninja Assassin is a ninja movie. And Rain plays a ninja who is all muscle and zero body fat. He doesn’t fit the action-figure mold.
And, in regular clothes one could possibly mistake him for a “regular Joe.” For about a minute. Which would be a minute too late, mind you. (Poor ninja-girl in the laundromat. O_o) In any event, his baddassery still far outweighs the other “Regular” Joes on the list, don’t you think?
The movie, Ninja Assassin, also appears on Action Movie Freak’s “Hit List” as one of the Good (Oorah!) Action Movies. The Freak’s not very picky. He admits to loving ALL action movies to some degree. So, I imagine that if something comes out on his bad hit list, then it’s probably really REALLY BAD.
What a fun list! Please enjoy!
