Action August 2014: The Action Strikes Back!

action-august-2-billboard
 

As summer winds down, the action amps up!  The 2nd Annual Action August kicked off with the sci-fi action of Starship Troopers and ended with bonus Labor Day action with Pirates of the Caribbean.  Over the month there were kicks, punches, gunfire, and lasers as some of the biggest (and baddest) action starts took out their enemies to save themselves and the world.  With over 60 entries and a Jackie Chan week mixed in, Action August continues strong!

Here’s the complete list of BasementRejects’ Action August films with links to their reviews…just click on the title.  Stick with BasementRejects for more action, sci-fi, drama, romance, comic books, TV, and games and come back in October for the 4th annual 31 Days of Horror on BasementRejects!
