14 Really Hard Movie One-Man Armies

Prev1 of 16Next


‘Army-of-One’, ‘One-Man-Army’, ‘I’m-Really-Hard-and-You’re-Not’ – whatever you want to call them, these wrecking machines are what make an interest in cinema worthwhile.  Never have I disliked, or will I ever dislike, any film which features a one-man-army in any capacity – even if “Commando” is just playing on the TV in the background.

So here is a list (in no particular order) of films that contain what I believe to be 14 of the hardest one-man-armies ever depicted in film.  Aside from the most well-known ones, I’ve also tried to throw in a few you might not have yet witnessed.

Gary enjoys films with explosions, fighting, giant robots, sex scenes, swearing, monsters and Eric Roberts - or what can more commonly be termed, 'shit'. He is an expert (by default) on films that nobody else watches and his favourite movie is Transformers - although he is aware lots of people watched that.

    Kham in Tom Yung Goon aka The Protector starring Tony Jaa.
    Inspector Tequila Hard Boiled (Chow Yun Fat)
    Beck in The Rundown (Dwayne Johnson)
    Todd 3465 in Solider (Kurt Russell)
    But Tequilla is a definite man.

    I have to admit, Liam Neeson was incredibly badass in “Taken”. I was shock that he could be that utterly badass. Hope he comes back for the sequel.

    LOL. Todd in “Soldier”. One of my favorite guilty pleasures. It also co-starred another major (but alas, pretty much former now) badass, Jason Scott Lee.

    Yeah that was such a good “bad” film. And Jason Scott Lee came off of Dragon on fire, and then Hollywood quickly put him out.

    yea all of those are awsome. Isn't number 8 from “The Rundown”.

  • GazzO

    Yeah it is from “The Rundown” – it was called “Welcome to the Jungle” in England.

    Liam Neeson kicked ass in Sam Raimi's Darkman. Plus Rutger Hauer in Blind Fury. Definitely Hard Boiled; Chow and Tony made me shit my pants they were so good in that film.

  • GazzO

    Yes! I forgot about Blind Fury – such a good film.

    Blind Fury was awesome!!! Now that's something that could use a remake with some extra japanese flair thrown in.

    Leon the Professional is a no show on this list? Really? Even as a runner-up?
