Not to be confused with Action director.

Action film directors guide the filming and creative elements in action movies, a film genre where action sequences, such as fights, shootouts, stunts, car chases or explosions either take precedence or, in finer examples of the genre, are used as a form of exposition and character development. Action movie directors may also blend other genres into their films, such as romance, science fiction, or even comedy (e.g., Rush Hour). The genre is closely linked with the thriller and adventure film genres.

The names in bold are names whose techniques used in film are significant and recognizable.
