I say Kill Bill (1 and 2)--The opening shot of Kill Bill one ("Bill, it's your ba"--BANG!) is one of the most brilliant, brutal, shocking openings to any film ever, I think. Plus the first knife fight between Vivica A Fox and Uma Thurman might be my favorite fight in the whole film...again just because it's so brutal and ends so abruptly. But that film is consistently awesome on a whole bunch of different levels.
I really like "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" as well. At the time I saw it, especially, it blew my mind as I'd never seen anything like it. Of course I've since seen the films that influenced it, but I still think it's a solid kung Fu melodrama.
Plus, while I think it's easy to dismiss now just because it's been ripped off so many times that it's become a bit old hat (not the mention the subpar sequels), but I think alot of people forget just how awesome "The Matrix" was. At the time of its release there was really nothing else like it. Unfortunately I think it's one of those films that because so influential that all the pop culture it inspired eventually diminished the film itself somewhat, but it still holds up as a damn good action film.

Maybe it's just my fault, but I could never get in to Ong Bak, though. It had awesome stunts, true, but the plot was essentially just any direct to video action movie from the 1980s/early 90s. And the photography and direction weren't that great (which I think are super important in films like this as good direction will take what would otherwise just be a dry stunt reel and turn it in to something interesting). I've heard its sequels were better, though, so maybe I should give them a second chance.

I'd also highly, highly, recommend "Female Convict Scorpion from Jailhouse 41.":
It's beautifully shot, cinemascope, brutality--but with a sort of stylized Godard-esque sense of distanced cool about it. Tarrantino cribbed a bunch from its style in making the Kill Bills.

Just started watching first KIll Bill for the first time,allot of people are praising it so lets hope i'll like it.... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

Terminator 2 is my favorite action movie of all time but in the last 10 years I have to say it's Deadly Crossing with Steven Seagal. Maybe it's because I just saw it - but it's seriously awesome. It reminds me of his older stuff like Under Siege. Definitely worth a look - especially if you're a fan of the True Justice series he has.

Oh, and motherfucking Riki-Oh, because that shit is insane. I'd link to the Riki vs. Oscar fight scene which is basically the entire film in a nutshell but I couldn't find one that wasn't flagged so here's the trailer instead.

Just about everything posted here is great, but you have to give top honors to Die Hard. It's just a perfect film."What were we talking about? Pegasuses, pegasii, that's horses with wings. This motherf*cker got a sword that talks to him. Motherf*cker live in places that don't exist, it comes with a map. My God."
