Acclaimed director Tony Scott died Sunday after jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, Calif. He was 68.

Scott was well known for directing big-budget classics, and for collaborating with his older brother, director Ridley Scott.

Since the news broke last night, Hollywood figures have remembered him fondly:

No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day— Ron Howard

So sad to hear about Tony Scott. A master of grand action, nail biting pace and atmosphere. A real loss to film making.— Simon Pegg

Taking a moment to reflect on Tony Scott’s life & work! My sympathies to his family. Feeling the loss!— Samuel L. Jackson

From 1983 to 2010, Scott directed 16 major motion pictures — some critically acclaimed, others not so much. Always, though, his action films found a loving cult audience. Here, a look back at his work.
