10 Best Romance Action Movies

Thursday, April 28 by r.f.f.

Here are ten of the best romance action movies. Romance and action seem to go hand in hand but one usually tops the other in a movie. These movies have the best balance of romance and action and more then worth seeing.

  1. "The Princess Bride" This movie might just be the single most well known romance action movie ever made. Its one of the most quoted and copied movies ever made and its still watchable over and over again a decade later. Easily one of the ten best romance action movies.
  2. "Speed" This was the movie that introduced the world to Sandra Bullock and is still considered one of the best romance action movies ever made. “Speed” was simple in its plot and entertaining to watch, much of which came from the chemistry between the two leads. Definitely one of the ten best romance action movies.
  3. "Romancing the Stone" What doesn’t sound great about a young Michael Douglas swinging through the jungle wisecracking all the way? Nothing. And for that reason alone this was a great movie. A hilarious best romance action movie.
  4. "The African Queen" One of the ten best romance action movies of all time, it had plenty of action and plenty of romance. Not only was the chemistry between the characters enthralling but the scenery made the movie just fun to watch. It boasted some of the best performances these actors ever gave, making it one of the ten best romance action movies.
  5. "The Fifth Element" Bruce Willis is a staple of action movies, but in this movie he proved he could do a little bit of romance too. Tough guy falling in love with girl destined to save the world? Instant classic and definitely one of the ten best romance action movies of all time.
  6. "True Romance" Gotta love the combination of Quentin Tarantino and Christian Slater. Slater plays a bumbling car salesmen who steals cocaine from his hooker wife’s pimp and they end up on the run from the mobsters who want the cocaine. It sounds almost like something slapstick but Tarantino’s touch makes it one of the ten best romance action movies.
  7. "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" Its hard to describe this film, who’s multiple plots all exist around a love story. Beautiful camera work, fight scenes, and designs make this one of the ten best romance action movies.
  8. "Casablanca" Even if you haven’t seen the movie you’ve heard lines from it. The ending line, “This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”. Plus “Here’s looking at you kid”. Casablanca is a movie by which all others are judged and easily one of the ten best romance action movies, granted the action took a back seat to the romance.
  9. "The English Patient" It’s a tragic love story set during World War II, shown mostly in flashbacks as the main character is on his deathbed. The elegant filming makes this movie one of the ten best romance action movies as it follows the tale of a love affair, politics, and betrayal.
  10. "The Last of the Mohicans" Set during the French Indian War, the story follows trappers as they protect a British officers daughter. Love blossoms as the trappers attempt to follow their own plans while facing enemies on both sides of the war. This is by far one of the ten best romance action movies.
