    Inspired by my past thread (Best Performances in Horror Films) i come to you now with ”Best Performances in Action/Sci-Fi Films”

    Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns is not only my choice as the Best Performance in an Action film, it also is my favorite performance of ALL TIME, what a majestic work.

    Definitely Sigourney Weaver in Aliens.

    A real shame that none of the actors in Inception gained any traction. Marion Cotillard is my personal supporting actress winner that year.

    Does Michael J Fox in Back to the Future count?

    And absolutely Michael J counts. Back to the Future is indeed science fiction. Thanks for the reminder. I forgot to cite him.
