  • Action/Adv + Romance Combo Movies

    Looking for movies that combine Action/Adventure with a strong romantic storyline. The classic model for this would be ROMANCING THE STONE.

    Here's some others I came up with--

    African Queen
    Entrapment
    Six Days, Seven Nights
    The Mummy
    Indy 1 & 2
    Fool's Gold
    Ladyhawke

    Can you think of any others??

    Thanks!

      National Treasure
      Pirates of the Caribbean

      I'm looking for fun action stories with male & female leads.

        True Romance?
        Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

                007 movies... hmmmm... He gets married in On Her Majesty's SS, the one with Lazenby. I'll check them out. Thanks.

                      I feel like most action/adventures include romance? Or many, many of them do...

                      I think The Matrix trilogy is a good example no one mentioned yet.

                          Hah. My husband bought the PEARL HARBOR dvd & I was like "Wha? That's a horrible movie" ... but then i realized Kate Beckinsale is in it.

                          Speaking of Kate B: UNDERWORLD...

                          THE FIFTH ELEMENT works too.

                            Yeah, a lot of action movies include some romance. There's often a love interest or 'the girlfriend' char.

                            What I'm looking for are examples of movies where the action and romance elements are combined almost equally, where the male & female char's are almost equal, and where, 'are the 2 leads going to end up together?' is a big question in the plot... Mr & Mrs Smith & Last of the Mohicans are good examples.
