The 25 Best One-Liners in Action Movies

8. ”Always bet on black.”

Courtesy of: John Cutter (Wesley Snipes) in Passenger 57 (1992)

As much as it pains us to do, we must deduct some points away from Passenger 57’s inclusion here because it’s said over a phone, not face-to-face; though, we’re certain that John Cutter (Wesley Snipes, back when he could do no wrong) would’ve issued his four-word smackdown in person just as effortlessly. Furthermore, he probably would have snuffed the guy after the last word.

This one’s especially unforgettable for all you gamblers out there. Talking over the horn to the terrorist leader responsible for hijacking his aircraft, Cutter snaps, “You ever play Roulette?” The reply: “On occasion.” Followed up by, “Well, let me give you a word of advice: Always bet on black.” Dial tone. Totally owned.
