44 Action Hero Memes That Are Brimming With Testosterone

As brutal as the lockdowns and quarantine have felt, we like to look for silver linings. For many of us, this means more excuses to escape reality via television and movies. Action films are high up on our list of escapist genres. There's something weirdly therapeutic about watching a character kick major ass. Instagram meme creators such as @snackytuna and @bread_loafington take the heroes (think Sylvester Stallone and Mr. T) of testosterone-filled movies and make them the subjects of some seriously relatable and self-deprecating memes. While the image macros don't pass the Bechdel test, they're still extremely entertaining. If you like what you see, give these accounts a follow on Instagram. We think they deserve it.

If you aren't familiar with the impressive art form known as "parkour," it's essentially an extra fancy way of moving from point A to point B in obstacle-course fashion, also combining gymnastics and probably a general lack of fear. 

This guy is clearly a pro, so we hope we don't have to tell you to not try this at home, dummy!

The action genre got kickstarted in the '70s with movies like Enter the Dragon, Dirty Harry, and The French Connection. They enjoyed a golden age in the '80s with too many amazing movies to count. The '90s were also pretty damn good with entries like Jurassic Park, Independence Day, and The Matrix. Ever since the '90s, however, action flicks have been on a steady decline. What gives?

It's no secret that once Hollywood finds a formula for success, it sticks to it for, like, forever (see Avatar 8: Electric Blue-galoo in theaters Christmas 2027!). It's so pervasive in fact that even the trailers are basically carbon copies of each other, and they all use this one ridiculous editing style. Seriously, like 99.9% of all action movie trailers ever have done this.
