We Need New Action Movie Vehicles!

Remember in movies like Tango & Cash, James Bond, The Delta Force and Eye of the Tiger, they had ridiculously awesome vehicles?

I want to see them again. Cars which simply get you from A to B just won’t do and if it isn’t armed with a load of weapons, then it’s no fun. I want ejector seats, missiles, lasers and blow up dolls galore.

I think in one of the Expendables sequels it’s the perfect opportunity to have a return of the crazy vehicles of old. The plane is a cool addition but frankly, it just isn’t ridiculous enough.



Something like the below would be pretty awesome:


See? Now if Santa gets me one of these for Christmas then I’ll be happy… and kill him last.

I always thought Chuck Norris’s motorbike in The Delta Force was the stuff of dreams and I’d love to see some of that ridiculous fun back on screen again. It’s a motorbike… that fires missiles! Who wouldn’t want one of them? Imagine the commute into work every day….

I did a Dreamteams recently for a potential MASK live action movie, simply because the vehicles were cool and usually armed with lasers and all kinds of other awesome shit.

I’d love to see a movie vehicle armed with an EMP device which can take out a city block of electricity or a even small horse armed with lasers… admit it, you’d watch it.

Anyway, somebody bring back awesome action movie vehicles, their time has returned!

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it’s a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
