Regardless of what you thought of the first 'Expendables' film, or how high or low you’ve set your expectation levels for its sequel, it really cannot be denied that 'The Expendables 2' truly has assembled a cast of Earth’s mightiest heroes. In celebration of this bounty of testosterone, we felt now was the time to assemble a list of the greatest action movie stars of all-time.

No. 2: Bruce Willis — Top Action Movie Stars

My sense is that we won’t need to argue too hard to convince anybody of Bruce Willis’ legendary action hero status.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is easily the most improbably named action hero of all time. But this list isn’t about improbable names, is it?

Bruce Lee died tragically young. His life and death are the stuff of legends. How could such an energetic and athletic man die from health complications so young? Had he not passed away at such a young age, one can only dream about the new levels of action brilliance he would have gifted the world with on the big screen

No. 10: Kurt Russell — Top Action Movie Stars

Two words: Snake Plissken. Oh, you need further justification for placing Kurt Russell in the top 10 action heroes? Oh, his childhood gigs for the Walt Disney machine don’t count? Okay. Well, let’s talk about a hero called Jack Burton in ‘Big Trouble In Little China,' then
