Marked for Death or Out for Justice if you want to get idea why he became popular. His earlier movies have that 80-90s gritty violent feel to them. Under Siege is his most popular movie, but it is also after his peak time (for example Mad magazine made fun of him being too out of shape in that movie).
They are OK, if they are from the older era (ps2 or older) and fix somethings like bad frame rate. Collections like Master Chief and MGS are really cool idea too. Problem is when they are used just to fill the library quota of the platform and don't offer really nothing new (like GoW3 and DmC recycles seem not to).
