Best Science Fiction Top 10 Action Movies

Top 10 of the best science fiction action movies ever made. There are thousands of film titles to choose from. We came up with 10 that are fact-paced and contain a lot of action.

Science fiction is a genre dealing with the impact of imagined innovations in science or technology, often in a futuristic setting. Exploring the consequences of such innovations is the traditional purpose of the genre, making it a “literature of ideas”. It is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possibilities.

Science Fiction is similar to, but differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, its imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically established or scientifically postulated laws of nature. Some of the elements in a movie or story might still be pure imaginative speculation.

There are new movies coming out this summer. Steven Spielberg is releasing one called “Super 8″ and the trailer looks amazing. Unfortunately, Spielberg didn’t make this list of the top ten best movies.

1. Blade Runner - Ridley Scott
2. Star Wars Trilogy IV-VI - George Lucas
3. Alien - Ridley Scott
4. The Matrix - L & A Wachowski
5. 2001: A Space Odyssey - Stanley Kubrick
6. Aliens - James Cameron
7. The Terminator - James Cameron
8. The Fifth Element - Luc Besson
9. Terminator 2: Judgement Day - James Cameron
10. Twelve Monkeys - Terry Gilliam

Some movies were not on the best film list. The film “Close Encounters of a Third Kind” came in at number 17. “Men In Black” wasn’t on the science fiction top 10 either.
