Top 13 Action Films of the 1990s

Here is a list of the top 13 action movies of the 1990s. This was originally going to be a top 13 list of all movies released in the 1990s but that list was way too long and trying to whittle it down to 13 was proving to be impossible so I decided to go with action movies only.
