Who’s your favourite action hero?

Who’s your favourite action hero?

Whether it’s Arnie, Sly, Sigourney or Bruce, it’s time to settle this once and for all…

These butt-kicking behemoths are the best of the best, but who should top the list as the greatest ever?

Commando, Easter Sunday, 9pm, Film4/HD (CH 428/429)

We all pretend to like arty European movies when we’re trying to impress other people, but let’s face it: nothing beats a good action movie. And there’s an absolute classic heading your way on Film4 this Easter Sunday.


Commando, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, is the quintessence of 1980s action flicks. With big explosions, even bigger muscles and a tonne of awesome one-liners, it’s the story of one man’s mission to rescue his daughter after she’s kidnapped by a group of South American criminals. Or something. It doesn’t matter that much. Look at the explosions!


This genre-defining movie is part of Film4’s Total Mayhem season, a collection of fist-clenching, heart-pounding, adrenalin-pumping movies being shown on the channel until Easter Monday.


But before you strap yourself in and get blown away by Arnie in one of his finest roles, we want you to vote for who you think is the greatest action hero of all time. Take a look at the contenders below…


Who’s number one?
