The 25 Best One-Liners in Action Movies

18. “Imagine the future, Chains, ’cause you’re not in it.”

Considering that is stars a professional football star with no previous acting experience, 1991’s Stone Cold is a much better film than one might expect. A portion of the credit goes to the flick’s bone-crunching, genuinely visceral fight sequences, but a large part of the credit must be awarded to pigskin-to-the-big-screen leading man Brian “The Boz” Bosworth. Aside from whooping enormous amounts of derriere, The Boz completely sells every one of Stone Cold’s hokey lines, particularly, “Imagine the future, Chains, ’cause you’re not in it.” Which sounds a lot like something John Elway could’ve said to Tim Tebow in mid-March of this year.
