45 80s Action Hero Tributes

Saulte ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ with These 80s Action Movi

— February 12, 2013 — Pop Culture
The 80s action movie is back in a way like it never left. Seriously, when was the last time that you could see all-star action heroes in new movies like you can now? We’re talking Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude van Damme, Steven Seagal, Sylvester Stallone and who could forget the Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's a testosterone-infused celebration!

Some of these tributes are made by clever fans who honor the action heroes of not too long ago through remixed movie posters; others are funny commercials and other tributes come in extremely creative ways like a full-sized, assault rifle-toting chocolate Bruce Willis to promote ‘A Good Day to Die Hard.’

If you’ve got a taste for action movies from the greatest decade for the genre, then checking out these 80s action movie and star tributes is an absolute must. Yippie-ki-yay, I’ll be back right after I say Hasta La Vista, Baby.
