The wild bunch

This wild bunch is not about Peckinpah’s film but the Summer Blockbuster Cas-A-Thon hosted by John at Hitchcock’s World. John had a great idea for all action movie aficionados: put together a dream team of tough gals and guys to save the Prime Minister of Canada. He was on a flight to a very important U.N. conference when his plane was shot down somewhere over an isolated war-torn location and now he has been kidnapped by Neo-Nazi communist hippy ninjas. Well, that’s the gist of it, just click on the banner if you want to read the rules.

Action Movie Blogathon

Without further ado, here’s my selection.

Sarah Connor – Terminator 2

 

SarahConnor-T2

She spent more than a decade training and learning everything she could about fighting  and survival in preparation for a world apocalypse and a war against machines guided by  an evil A.I. She can face anything: Neo-Nazi communist hippy ninjas are just another day  at the office. She is also my choice as team leader.

Yukio – The Wolverine

 

She is superb with a katana, a quick thinker, fearless and she has the power to foreseen the death of people, which can come handy when on a dangerous mission.

Yukio-The-Wolverine

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beatrix Kiddo – Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2

 

She is Black Mamba, one of the deadliest assassins in the world with blade or gun. She is a master of the Hung Gar style of kung fu and the only person to know the “Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique”. Resourceful and relentless, she’s clearly a force to recon with.

BeatrixKiddo-KillBill

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pvt. J. Vasquez – Aliens

 

She is a trained Colonial Marine with tons of combat experience and not Vasquez-Aliensnew to search and rescue missions. In addition she handles a M56 Smartgun like no other, she is loyal and, after dealing with Xenomorphs, Neo-Nazi communist hippy ninjas are a walk in the park.

 

 

 

 

 

May Day – A View To A Kill

 

May-Day-A-View-to-a-Kill

She has super strength, a killer instinct and mad fighting skills. She might  live in a moral grey area but when the chips are down she’ll do the right  thing.

 

 

 

 

Isabelle – Predators

 

A sniper of the Israeli Defense Forces with great survival skills. Isabelle-PredatorsOnly woman chosen by alien hunters for their games and one of the only two survivors, which goes a long way when you have to deal just with humans.

 

 

 

Snake Plissken – 1997 Escape From New York

 

For him this mission would be: been there, done that. He can fly and land a stealth glider (on a skyscrape at night) with only one eye and he was born ready.

Plissken-EscapefromNewYork

 

 

 

 

 

Agent J – Men In Back

 

Used to be a cop in New York, he moved on to monitor and police aliens on Earth: he runs as fast as aliens, he prevents mankind’s annihilation and he deals with every sort of high tech toys.AgentJ-MIB

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remo Williams –  Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

 

RemoWilliams Ex-cop and veteran Marine, he can dodge bullets and run on water. He’s  well-versed in the martial art of Sinanju and tough as nail.

 

 

 

 

 

Sing – Kung Fu Hustle

 

He might not be the sharpest tool in the shed but he knows kung fu and can deliver the Buddhist Palm. Sing-Kung_Fu_HustleNot to be underestimated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Captain Nascimento – Tropa De Elite

 

Nascimento-Tropa-de-elite Driven and formidable, he fights guerrilla warfare with the drug dealers of  Rio’s favelas. He’s definitely combat ready.

 

 

 

 Chan Wing-Yan – Infernal Affairs

 

Years of deep undercover work within the triad of Hong Kong has prepared him for everything. ChanWing-yan-InfernalAffairsHis nerves might be a little frayed but you can always count on him.

  1. Oh wow, this is amazing! I had been wondering if anyone else would contribute to this blogathon. It’s certainly quite the selection you got there. I think I had a feeling I might see Vasquez at some point (I believe that was one of the main reasons I didn’t put her on my own list). I’m also a big Carpenter fan so seeing Snake Plissken on the list was a pleasant surprise.
