This is a somewhat different, but very good "action" video. Definitely the best vid I've seen using Excel Saga. Excel Saga is difficult to use, because of its random, crazy nature. This shows in this vid as well, because the clip selection might seem random at times, but here, it actually works! It's very fast and upbeat, the clips are cleverly used and the quality's great. It has a kind of mindless craziness to it that makes me feel like Excel Saga was made just to make this video possible.

Great idea to create this forum, by the way!

All of the Epileptic Seizure Studio videos are good, but this one takes the cake. Combining intricate and impecable timing with moody visuals, this is a video you can watch time and time again, a true classic. One of the crowning achivements of the straight action genre, this is a must watch video.

There is a lot of fighting, and just tons of fighting scenes from Naruto. It's a fast moving song, but it's short (1:19). I think it's pretty good, and it goes along with the song extremely well.

The fades are perfection. It starts out slow with a spooky atmosphere, but somewhere on the 2 minute mark is where the action begins. The syncing is really brilliant and simple. Song changes pretty often and thus it never gets old. Gotta love Radiohead. :)

Why I Like This Video
The video has an array of effects, flashes, and good timing with a song that couldn't sync any better with the footage. Hard work, and dedication is clearly shown in this amv, along with some really good Blind Guardian Beats :P

Why I Like This Video
Paulo is one of my favorite GMV creators on the org. He used multiple PS2 games in this video with very good syncing and effects to the Gone In 60 Seconds theme OST. Although under appreciated by some this is my favorite GMV video so far.

Why I Like This Video
This was another one of my favorite GMV's with a good mood set to Front 242. The video contains Breath Of Fire 5 Devil May Cry 1,2, Final Fantasy 10, and Legend of Dragoon which most arent used often in GMV's. This used to be my favorite GMV until being replaced by "Wanna Play With Me?"

Well this is my home ... the action video thread :D.

Typical Dethmajor video, this is some serious mayhem. Berserk + Testament. It's my all time favorite.

A nice compilation of In Flames' Colony album (just 6 Tracks in the first part) combined with some great anime like Wolfs Rain, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust or Berserk. Altough it's not a linear edited action video it creates some serious adrenaline, not just because of the awsome music.

Blind Guaridan + Escaflowne. This video convinced me cause the action / editing sync is really dead on only a few videos possess such great editing of guitar solos, and it's really rare that a creator keeps this high level over such a long duration of the song.

This video is easily the greatest action video I have ever seen. The footage quality was top notch. The sound quality was CD calibre. The synching for every little drum beat, and ever piece of guitar was perfectly matched to what was happening onscreen. The digital effects added to the mood of the video, enhancing the music. Obviously an enormous amount of effort and time was poured into this video as it was in the making for almost a year. This video is one I watch almost every afternoon. It's one of the few videos to recieve an all 10 score from me. Put simply, perfection at it's best.

An excellent, action-packed AMV, not only for those who like shoujo stuff... rather to those who like shounen action :D

I love this idea! I love this idea so much that I made my own ;p but since I can't link to it here I'll link to my favorite shoujo action video, JenCM's

it's not Linkin Park like my own, but it is action + magical girl.

This is an absolute mindless violence video that's just so visually appealing. And considering the fact Fluxy made this, and he's really good when it comes to action videos.

Ok, I think its time I added to some of the Recommended Video Threads. I would have been here sooner but I'm pretty lazy. Toushi and War of Wrath are already listed and well explained, so I'm going to add:

My favorite Trigun video of all time, the song is pretty catchy to boot. This video also runs through most if not all of my favorite moments from the series.

My favorite Crest of the Stars video of all time. It offers a good mix of action, drama, and romance. I'm going to go ahead and list it here in my action recommendations just because its action elements are what really stood out for me.
