List RulesCliches, cliches, cliches. Vote for the ones that you agree are in most action movies.

Nary a soul is immune to the adrenaline pumping joy of a great action movie. Explosion laden escapist fare is so popular that you'd think that's all moviegoers want to see these days. But let's get real (reel?): with so many action movies in existence, there are bound to be some repeated ideas.

Some of these ideas are recalled so often they reach the level of cliché; be it jumping through a plate glass window, a single punch knockout, or gratuitous nudity, this list is full of the best, the worst, and the most often seen action movie cliches. Vote up your favorites or add a few you think were left out.
