Default Who were your action heroes growing up?

Growing up me and a friend probably saw every single shwartzenneger film worth seeing. Then my dad was a big western fan so lots of John wayne and clint eastwood.

Then I started watching Stallone and Willis, so all of them pretty much. Who stood out for you?

I remember when i was like four i saw Missing in action 2 and was hooked on Norris ever since. Plus Seagal before he douched out. I like the under siege movies. OHHH and VAn Damage was still cool back then

Commando with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I remember watching it when I was like 8 years old with my dad and I said "I can't believe he can do that". My dad would then reply with "It's a movie son".

I saw some van damme and segal movies growing up, plus biehn, but Shwartzenneger, Stallone and Willis were THE action heroes (stalllone and willis also making new movies.) I really got into eastwood when i was a bit older, and John wayne movies were cool but he was a different kind of icon.

Bruce Willis for me. Especially the Die Hard series. Arnold, Seagal, and Stallone as well. Never got into Van Damme movies much. I have a couple of his movies and I've seen more but they never really stood out to me.
