Oohhh, yes. I might not really see it as action as a whole, but there definitely are action scenes in it (I'm looking at you, Shrike).
I'd like to second Edge of Tomorrow as well. Minority Report was nice too. I do have the action in The Forever War in good memory, though they were neither long nor any sort of a lynchpin of the story.
Not necessarily what you are looking for, but Warhammer 40k has pretty nice action going on. And as a final note, I do like the Approach of "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", as seen in Numenera or Dragonriders of Pern (which I am reading atm, so I might be in for a suprise later on).
