The Expendables 3, Stallone
This summer, you're get a movie in which Kellan Lutz is considered as much of an action star as Arnold Schwarzenegger. Welcome the strange world of "The Expendables 3," a franchise which has morphed from "let's celebrate the action olds!" to "who can we get to up the irony factor?"

Paul W.S. Anderson, Action features
For critics, Paul W.S. Anderson is the ideal punching bag—a terrible director with a penchant for churning out clichéd action flicks. If you take a look at his Rotten Tomatoes page—where the highest-rated project is the straight-to-video sequel “Death Race 3”—you will get an idea of the response the filmmaker’s work tends to receive.

James McAvoy Says Jason Statham Delivered The "Best Line I've Ever Heard In A Film"

Crank
For the grief we sometimes give Jason Statham, let's face it: he knows what his strengths are, he plays to them, and he delivers exactly what fans expect each time out. He makes what is often very hard look pretty easy. And while critics may not usually take kindly to his movies, there's one actor out there giving him due props: James McAvoy. Read More »

The Mechanic
It would seem that even Jason Statham has his limits. The action star doesn't always have the most discerning decision making process, and combined with a rather limited and defined range, it means his movies usually fit into a very specific box. But when it comes to the franchise that made his name, he's walking away from it slowly (as something surely explodes behind him).

The craft of the B-picture has been lost. It’s been lost in a sea of audiences trained by awards shows and armchair critics to thumb their nose at straight action films, the kind of entertainment that used to be the audience’s bread-and-butter. It used to mean that you threw cash at the screen to make an action film in order to simulate larger-than-life actors going at each other in exotic locales. Computers changed all that, and altered audience’s expectations: the old magic just wouldn’t stand anymore, and action films needed to be buoyed by ridiculous computer effects (the ones that turned Tobey Maguire and Matt Damon into Schwarzenegger and Stallone) in order to create that enhanced un-reality. Simply kicking a guy in the head was no longer enough, despite the wonderful talent and inventiveness of some of the kickers, like Wesley Snipes, Jackie Chan or any of the slew of analog action heroes who have suffered in the digital age.

Before Daniel Craig became James Bond and help revolutionize the role and an entire franchise there was a movie he made that put him on the radar as a contender: Matthew Vaughn's "Layer Cake." A nifty little crime thriller which may not have lit up the box office, but at least earned solid reviews and gained more traction in its post-theatrical life as it spread through word of mouth. Now, a decade later, the nameless anti-hero is coming back but this time with a different face.

If there’s anything one could take away from Jason Statham’s career over the past few years, it’s that he likes to kick a lot of ass. He’s one of the few reliable action stars in the business, always fun to watch even if his movies aren’t always worth writing home about. Now he might be getting a chance to flex his comic muscles, teaming up with Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, and director Paul Feig in “Susan Cooper.”

Homefront
In 2013, James Franco has played Alien ("Spring Breakers"), Oz ("Oz The Great And Powerful"), Darl Bundren ("As I Lay Dying"), Hugh Hefner ("Lovelace") and James Franco ("This Is The End"). Say what you will, but Franco can sure choose 'em. And now for his next unlikely gig? He plays a dude named Gator in the Sylvester Stallone-penned (yes, really) "Homefront."

Homefront
James Franco has done many, many things in his career as an artist/writer/actor/director, but he's yet to cross action movie villain off his list. Well, until now. Finally, the definitive answer who is tougher—Franco or Jason Statham—will be answered in "Homefront," which boasts Sylvester Stallone as both writer and producer. You've been warned.
