    Don't fly often but tomorrow I have to for business, so would
    like to watch a good action movie on iPad. Already downloaded 13 assassins.

    Lay it on me, new , old, whatever. Lots of action preferred.

    See if you can find Night Of The Juggler with James Brolin. It has what is considered to be the best car chase ever put on film. HH

    Running Scared(with Paul Walker) is a pretty crazy movie. Just saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It was way better and darker than I expected.

    I really enjoy The Rock with Sean Connery, Nicholas Cage and Ed Harris.

    I'm sorry... Here's one I don't even own... Why? Because I deduced from the get-go that Ed Harris' character was no way in hell going to do that... :upeyes: :shakehead: :miff:
