2009 Best Action Movie Winner

Avatar

This was inevitable really.  James Cameron has been leading the pack as far as action movies go for the last 25 years and with avatar he’s reclaimed his spot atop the adrenaline mountain.  Part of the movie’s success is that its action is really good, but also used with reasonable judgment.  All the action serves the story and there are no pointless action scenes shoehorned in just to appease hypothetical audiences like in other blockbusters this year *cough* Star Trek and District 9 *cough.*  When something wins the fight and chase of the year you know it’s special.
