    A great idea for a list and definitely one of Mojo's better entries. I robot, Bad boys and Constantine are also worth mentioning.

    Any list with a Bourne movie in it should have said movie at #1. That's all there is to say. Get it right, Mojo.

    Thank God that there are intelligent people out there who can make great, exciting movies without having sex scenes in them. I personally can't stand it in ordinary movies, should be a genre by itself as it used to be. I mean if I go out to a restaurant and see two people in love at a table, I don't follow them home and into their bedrooms to watch them have sex, and I soooo don't get why almost all movies treat us all like we're a bunch of voyeurs, the movies in this list proves otherwise.

    I don't remember love interest in any of the Resident Evil films (definitely not the last one). For a list that is meant to include Double A action films that is a pretty big omission, dontcha think?

    Killing the dog is the most upsetting thing I've seen in movies. I'd rather they do almost anything else. But it does provide for plenty of motivation to kill a few hundred people lol

  • Robert Agu

    John Wick, this is Sorta true, there was a driving love interest. just that it was in his deceased wife's gifts.
    An Fury Road sets up for a POSSIBLE, but not guaranteed, love or partnership somewhere down the road. but everyone knew it was a prequel so we know how that had to end.
    the Alien one could've only ended differently if it was the 3rd and we learned Ripley was "into" Wyone Ryder look alike androids.

    I wish to know if any of the James Bond movies could apply since James never ends up with a REAL love interest (except for a temporary one in Under Her Majesty Secret Service).

    P.S: Many war movies don't have any love interest, but I don't know if they apply.

    Hi, I don't expect anything. However I tought better to try than doing nothing. I'm a cinema fan since I'm a kid, now I'm 20 and will soon join a cinema school. I had a few gear during my teens. But you know... the basic stuff, just to shot and edit It on a computer. Today we'd like to do short films with my friends. We're not beginners anymore. We need a better equipment that we have picked carefully. But we dont have enought money to buy it... yeah obviously, cause we're still students... So we launched a crowdfunding because it's the only way to buy the gear. We want to start right away, we have great ideas and we are very motivated. It would also be helpfull to have It during my studies. BUT my real goal behind all of this, is to gain subscribers on our futur Youtube channel and use the notoriety to make big movies more easily after the cinema studies, THEN ---> use the majority of the money we earned throught the films to HELP people! First, African children who die of hunger and thirst, then homeless people. Latelly, help all the artists or anybody who really want to launch a great project, but do not have enough money. And make them known thanks to our notoriety! Cinema is also a way of telling stories and leaving messages to a large public :) Here is the link to help us reach that goal: Thanks you so much for reading, even if you can't, or dont want to give :) I wish you an amazing day!

    Others should include Bullitt,French Connection,Jaws,Matrix,Bad Boys,Berverly Hills Cop,Air Force One,The Fugitive,Die Hard,Snakes on the Plane,Deathwish,Olympus Has Fallen and let's not forget The Fast and The Furious franchise love interest makes a leading men look weak invovling a Damesl in Distress being a determent or a Dead Weight which spoils a action plot they be better off by killing a villain and having a weak girl gets in the way.
