We judge our action heroes not by their actions but by how badass they sound just before or after their actions. A great line can make or break these films, as the following badass quotes attest.
10. “Murdock, I’m coming to get you.” – Rambo: First Blood Part II
Poor Murdock. You don’t not want Rambo on your ass. And it looks like he has Rambo on his ass. Good luck to him.
9. “Get away from her, you bitch!” – Aliens
Sigourney Weaver follows up one of the most badass reveals of all time with one of the best lines. It wouldn’t be half as cool if she weren’t saying it to a massive queen alien. But she is.
8. “Go ahead. Make my day.” – Dirty Harry
No one says this unless they’re 100% their audience has absolutely no chance of making their day. So if you hear it, run for your life.
