The local entertainment industry has seen its fair share of action stars who changed the game when it comes to making and portraying characters whose lives are filled with exciting and action-packed scenes.
These actors are usually seen wearing their black leather jackets, with their matching leather shoes or boots, their manly facial hair, and with their slicked-back hairstyles. These actors carry the image of being tough men who can do and overcome anything, that most men at some point, made them their favorites.
Being an action star in the 90s makes an actor some kind of a hero that people really look up to. These actors sometimes carry with them their characters and make the leather jacket a staple in their wardrobe.
Some action stars who left a mark in show business and changed the games for action movies are Lito Lapid, Rommel Padilla, Jeric Raval, Jestoni Alarcon, Robin Padilla, and the King, Fernando Poe, Jr. We also have a representative for the younger generation which is Coco Martin.
Of course, while we have our amazing main character that we can root for, a good action film will also always have an amazing antagonist or ‘kontrabida’ that always puts the main character in a difficult situation.

We know that they are effective ‘kontrabidas’ if they make us mad and really gets on our nerve.
If we had the power to magically be in the movie to tell the main character about this kontrabida’s plan, we would have done it!
While we have great action stars who always play the hero in the movie, we also have amazing actors who give their kontrabida character justice.
Some of them are Eddie Garcia, Paquito Diaz, John Regala, Roi Vinzon, Pen Medina, Efren Reyes, Jr., Dindo Arroyo, and Mon Confiado.
Another actor whose name is known in showbiz as both a hero and the antagonist is Jay Manalo.
Jay Manalo is known for his movie Totoy Mola and his different roles in the Mano Po movies.
This action star recently admitted that he has 11 children from six different women. Yes, you read that right.
