It's not conclusive, but you might be referring to The Darkest Hour It's a 2011 sci-fi movie about a an invasion of invisible aliens set in Moscow with some American teenagers as the main protagonists.

This sounds exactly like Red Dawn (the original from 1984 with the good old Soviets, not the 2012 remake with North Koreans): From out of the sky, Soviet, Nicaraguan, and Cuban troops begin landing on the football field of a Colorado high school. In seconds, the paratroopers have attacked the school and sent a group of teenagers fleeing into the ...

It could be The Tenth Victim (1965), starring Marcello Mastroianni, though I think the game was supposed to prevent war rather than to relieve overpopulation: In the near future, big wars are avoided by giving individuals with violent tendencies a chance to kill in the Big Hunt. The Hunt is the most popular form of entertainment in the world and ...

I'm pretty sure this is a 1986 movie starring Rutger Hauer called Wanted: Dead or Alive. The guy riding the bike is his friend who is storing his bike in Nick's (Hauer) wharehouse home because he doesn't want his wife to know he's bought it. This movie also stars Gene Simmons from the rock band KISS and TV show Family Jewels. Gene plays a Middle-Eastern ...

This sounds like The Princess Bride, (1987). Cary Elwes looks something like Jean Marais, and his character defeats Mandy Patinkin in a sword-fight, Andre the Gaint in hand-to-hand combat, and Wallace Shawn in a battle of wits. (The battle of wits is the poisoned-wine scene.)

Looks like Die Hard. But this isn't an actual picture, so this question might not stay here for long. See this poster, for example:

My first thought was Cloak & Dagger, starring Dabney Coleman. It somewhat fits the profile, with an 11-year-old boy caught up in espionage, and his "savior/partner" is an imaginary guy. At the end, he meets his real dad in an airport, if memory serves me correctly.

You might be talking about the Indonesian 2009 action movie Merantau (AKA Merantau Warrior) with the same director and leading actor of the later hit The Raid: Redemption. It's about a young Indonesian man who leaves his village and moves to Jakarta, where he comes across a girl and tries to rescue her from a prostitution ring run by two Europeans (who speak ...

I believe the movie you are thinking of is Knights, circa 1993. From the Wikipedia page: The cyborg Gabriel (Kris Kristofferson) was created to destroy all other cyborgs. He later rescues Nea (Kathy Long) by killing Simon (Scott Paulin), one of the other cyborgs. Gabriel trains Nea to become a cyborg killer and help him. They continue to kill cyborgs ...

I remember a very similar scene from Last Action Hero: Young Danny Madigan is a big fan of Jack Slater, a larger-than-life action hero played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. When his best friend, Nick the projectionist, gives him a magic ticket to the new Jack Slater film, Danny is transported into Slater's world, where the good guys always win. One of ...

That sounds like the film, The Big Man (Crossing the Line in the US), starring Liam Neeson, Joanne Whalley-Kilmer and Billy Connolly. An unemployed Scottish miner (Liam Neeson) is forced into bare-knuckle boxing to make ends meet. It's set in Scotland. It's a pretty good film. The fighting scenes are quite brutal, plus there is a very brief post ...

I think I got it: Sabotage from 1996. An ex-Navy commando (Mark Dacscos) is framed for a bungled mission to save hostages from terrorists in which he survived being shot 7 times by an assassin (Tony Todd). Years later, he is hired to protect a weapons distributor and his wife, only to have the same assassin kill them. This sets him on a mission with the ...

Try watching Remo Williams or The Golden Child. Maybe The Fugitive or Logan's Run if you're looking for someone being hunted.

The movie you're looking for seems to be War, starring Jet Li and Jason Statham: After his partner Tom Lone and family are killed apparently by the infamous and elusive assassin Rogue, FBI agent Jack Crawford becomes obsessed with revenge as his world unravels into a vortex of guilt and betrayal. Rogue eventually resurfaces to settle a score of his ...

That is indeed Cover Girl played by Karolína Kurková, she did die in the movie and has not appeared since. In the various comics continuities (and cartoons) the character Cover Girl does not die.

You might also be after Masters of the Universe. I don't think it features any kind of special gauntlet/glove, but it is a 1987 Fantasy-Action-Adventure featuring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man (famous for his big, uh, sword) intruding into 80s small town life: The planet Eternia is in the aftermath of Skeletor's war on Castle Greyskull, which he has won ...

While the question is extremely lacking in details, it reminds me of the 1992 cult classic Army of Darkness, where I remember the protagonist to have had an iron gauntlet instead of a hand (and being set in the, more or less, middle ages, has him carry a sword now and then, too): In this sequel to the Evil Dead films, a discount-store employee ("Name's ...

Paul Verhoeven's "Total Recall" comes to my mind. You didn't say it starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, which is a quite memorable element of this movie, but your memories are so vague that is might have missed you :) Anyway, this is the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFMLGEHdIjE And here's why I think it may be it: it's a sci-fi movie from 1990 ...

It occurs to me that this might be Thunderball, the 4th Eon Productions James Bond movie. A lot of the scenes are set underwater in the sea or in pools. You say the killer is the main character and is wearing a rebreather or scuba gear. James Bond wears scuba gear or his emergency oxygen mouthpiece. James Bond is kind of a paid killer, and kills several ...
