Narrowing down all the classic action blockbusters to a list of only 5 is practically mission impossible (pun intended).

We at Movies Talk find these upcoming hot summer days rather excruciating, which is why we decided to give you the following list of 5 hot and action-packed films that have stood the test of time in this popular genre.

So if you’re feeling hot as well, and are looking to revisit some classic action movies, here are 5 films that you have to see, again.

1. Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

Terminator 2 is quite possibly the most noted sequel of all time. All the action, drama, and amazing dystopian premise are all the more badass the second time around. James Cameron’s definitely made a masterpiece that is still as strong as it was 26 years ago.
