24 Best and Worst Action Sequels

by | March 1, 2016 | Comments

Let’s forget about that whole Egyptian gods thing — Gerry Butler’s got another action movie for you this week. He reprises his role as a head Secret Service agent in London Has Fallen, sequel to Olympus Has Fallen which got a 48% rating from critics back in 2013. The Fallen movies inspire this week’s 24 Frames: best and worst action sequels by Tomatometer!

    In my opinion, L.A. is pretty equal to NY, and RoboCop 2 is way worse than 3.
    Btw, there is in need of Die Hard 2.

      “In my opinion, L.A. is pretty equal to NY,…”

      Everyone has a right to an opinion,
      but in this case your opinion is scientifically and irrefutably wrong.

        It’s Kurt Russell, let him speak

    Mad Max Fury Road was pedantic, predictable and unoriginal. Aliens was mindless, uninspiring and dumber than a box of rocks. And people who slam the last two Matrix films are the same ones who love Mad Max Fury Road and Aliens. Probably big Top Gun fans, too.

      ahahahah this comment is so funny. You slam two amazing and highly critically acclaimed films and then make a statement you think is an insult that is actually a huge compliment. You are telling me that the last two Matrix films are better than two great action films. Those Matrix films nearly killed the franchise. Also, claiming that the plot of the Matrix was original-ha..ha.. You are a funny guy. And Top Gun? What are you smoking? That has no correlation with those other movies you mentioned. This comment is dumb on so many levels bro.

        I agree with you as far as the last 2 matrix films, I didn’t like the first one either.

        But the thing about critics and their praise for alienS or fury road is that they’re effete “intellectuals” in that smug new york mold who hate sci-fi movies and wouldn’t know a good one if it molested them behind a bush in central park.

        They only liked those movies for fitting into their political agendas.

    • aNYagenda

      AlienS really is over-rated.
      Although I can see the appeal for the dumb action movie crowd.

      Like a jj abrams, greasy low denominator satisfaction is what james cameron does best.

    • Paul Pomykala

      I fully agree about Mad Max Fury Road, I didn’t even finish watching it. I also thought that The Matrix was stupid, I never watched the sequels. Aliens was OK, but I never saw Alien. Top Gun is OK, but only to watch the airplane scenes.

      Mad Max is a major achievement in filmmaking and is too metal for you to handle

    Am I stupid or is being a mind reader a requirement? You have shown 24 pics from films. Which are your “best” pics and which are your “worst” pics?

    • Dan Ealy

      Click on any one of them for a slide show with comments about each.

  • aNYagenda

    Just by the list of pics those are all terrible.
    I’m not sure its worth clicking on a slideshow to find out which one you thought was the good one.

    (Probably fury road to be sure, but that was only good if you’ve got a mangina.)
