      I think 'Terminator 2' deserves to be a bit higher! There are some fantastic moments in the film, the Helicopter flying under the motorway bridge is still massively impressive, the T-1000 chasing Sarah Conner's car and the excellent truck chase where you first really see Arnie in action! Good list though, although I think a few moments from the first 2 'Lethal Weapon' movies are missing!

      I can't believe Back To The Future isn't even on this list. That final scene by the clocktower in the first movie has me on the edge of my seat every. single. time.

      A good list, but everyone will have personal favourites of course. I'd stick in the cave scene from Ravenous - Damon Albarn's soundtrack, matched with a scary Robert Carlyle, makes for one hell of an underrated scene. And the Suzukua 1989 footage from Senna is heart pounding stuff, too.

      This list could have contained about a thousand other entries, but good shout with numbe one. It's just one long, continuous bit of incredible action. You could even say it starts with the fight in front of the plane.

      Why is the Bourne Supremacy way down the list? Should be in the top 10 with the French Connection, because they done for real and not in a studio or with some pansy CGI. Pah!

      The "they're flocking this way" scene in Jurassic Park was worth a mention!

      The Harrier Jet finale to True Lies? Actually, the last forty minutes is pretty astounding. Certainly a damn site better than that c**p scene from Star Trek.

      In terms of The Dark Knight Rises' most exhilarating moments - the plane hijack is certainly more so than the pit climb. In fact, I'd argue said scene deserves a place above many in this list.

      Also, the Death Star superstructure chase at the end of Return of the Jedi is supremely exhilarating.

      So some b******t sequence from 'The Hunger Games' makes the cut, but you can't include the exosuit sequence from 'District 9'? This article is c**p.

      The ET scene should have placed higher up and I wish you included the "Hey, you guuuuys!" scene from The Goonies. Other than that, it was an entertaining read.

      Nothing about the Hunger Games was remotely exciting. The Gamres are the equivalent of a no-score draw.

      The Hunger Games was a sad mans emo knock off of Battle Royal. Ben Hur and the Chariot Race? The Bike chase from Return of the Jedi? Excalibur? This list was bloody c**p and what a surprise the gay Bond strikes again and twice.

      What about Jurassic Park, when the glass tremble, or when the kid is in the fence
