The 10 best action thriller movies of the 90's became classics that will be watched for many years to come. The 90's was a great decade for movies as the blockbuster film made a comeback, and now there are blockbuster releases every week during the summer. If you do not have all of the 10 best action thriller movies of the 90's in your movie collection, then you need to get them.

  1. "The Matrix" (1999). "The Matrix" movie trilogy made a huge impact on pop culture, and it got its start with "The Matrix" (1999). These movies also helped to establish actor Keanu Reeves as an A-list movie star.
  2. "The Usual Suspects" (1995). The character of Keyser Soze became so popular in the 90's that the name became synonymous with deception and cold-hearted murder. This is just a great movie that mostly takes place in a police detective's office.
  3. "Braveheart" (1995). The movie "Braveheart" (1995) is difficult to place on any list, but it definitely belongs on the list of the 10 best action thriller movies of the 90's. Say what you want about Mel Gibson, he knows how to make a great movie.
  4. "Saving Private Ryan" (1995). This rather graphic World War II movie was embraced by those that felt it offered the most authentic look at The Great War ever put on film. The acting is also top notch which makes this one of the 10 best action thriller movies of the 90's.
  5. "JFK" (1991). Director Oliver Stone went out on a limb to create the story of New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison as the only man to bring anyone to trial for the murder of John F. Kennedy. Some of Stone's theories are far-fetched, but this is definitely one of the top 10 best action thriller movies of the 90's.
  6. "The Sixth Sense" (1999). Director M. Night Shyamalan was at unknown commodity before this hit movie. But iconic performances by Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment had everyone seeing dead people after watching this member of the list of the 10 best action thriller movies of the 90's.
  7. "Unforgiven" (1992). Clint Eastwood won an Oscar for best director and best picture for this hit 90's movie, and Gene Hackman won an Oscar for his performance as well. It is the unpredictable nature of this movie that makes it such an iconic western thriller.
  8. "Goodfellas" (1990). The thrill in this classic 90's gangster movie was wondering what kind of trouble the main characters would get into next. Ray Liotta and Robert De Niro play perfect straight men to the antics of Joe Pesci.
