The 25 Best One-Liners in Action Movies

15. “What a pain in the neck.”

For making him wear shiny, suspect-looking yellow tights throughout the movie, the least that the makers of 1987’s The Running Man could do for star Arnold Schwarzenegger was bless him with a brilliantly silly one-liner. Frankly, he deserved more, but, at this point, that’s neither here nor there.

Besides, they also let him kill a man by strangling the guy with barbed wire, which led to The Running Man’s obvious yet still clever send-off, “What a pain in the neck.” Can’t be mad at that two-for-one deal.
