WHAT TO WATCH #pressplay


If you're in the mood for an action movie, here are the best on Netflix, according to Den of Geek.

Kill Bill Volume 1"Writer-director Quentin Tarantino is a big fan of grindhouse action movies, and rarely has that ever been more apparent in Kill Bill Volume 1. Uma Thurman stars as the unnamed 'Bride' -- a member of an elite group of assassins, betrayed and left for dead. After she recovers, she embarks on a singular path of vengeance."

 

Hot Fuzz"Hot Fuzz is technically a comedy. It's also arguably the most 'action movie' action movie ever made. That's because 'Cornetto Trilogy' director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, The World's End, Baby Driver) specifically went out of his way to incorporate as many action movie cliches as he could into Hot Fuzz."

Ip Man"Ip Man was a real-life master of the Wing Chun and teacher to Bruce Lee. Ip Man, the film, follows the master's life story through the early 1900s and in the process tracks the huge geopolitical changes in Southern China at the time. Ip Man takes enough liberties with its subject's life story to barely be a biography. It is, however, an entertaining action franchise."

Thor: Ragnarok"Thor: Ragnarok is a gleefully insane, heavy metal album cover of a movie. It's easily the best Thor offering yet and one of the overall best movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

Star Wars: The Last Jedi"This is exhilarating, risky filmmaking that all pays off in a thrilling final act. Let the past die. Kill it if you have to indeed."

The Bourne Ultimatum"In some ways Jason Bourne is American James Bond, right down to the J.B. initials. The Bourne Ultimatum would have made a fitting end to the series, but like the other J.B., this character is probably due for many more films."

The Kingdom"The Kingdom contains a lot of the pulse-pounding action you'd expect from a movie about military action in Saudi Arabia and still finds room for some deep geopolitical questions."

The Boondock Saints"Boondock Saints is about as straightforward a vengeance action movies as they come and was probably your college roommate's favorite movie."

Black Panther"Black Panther is a little bit of everything. It's a two-and-a-half-hour sci-fi fantasy epic. It's a modern James Bond caper. It's a political fairy tale. But don't overlook one thing: It's a great action film."

 

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"Edgar Wright is one of our best working directors, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World may just be his masterpiece (or Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz or Baby Driver or The World's End...really any movie he directs)."

Hold the Dark"Directed by Green Room's Jeremy Saulnier, Hold the Dark tells the story of wolf expert Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright). Core ventures into the brutal Alaskan winter to hunt for wolves that supposedly killed a local boy. The truth might not be that simple, however. Hold the Dark is worth it for simply being a solid action flick for Jeffrey Wright and Alexander Skarsgård to have a wintry blast."

Black Dynamite"Black Dynamite is equal parts blaxploitation, comedy and action.... This is a movie that not only knows what it is but also revels in it. Give this a watch to watch the absolutely massive black cast just generally having a great time."

Rumble in the Bronx"Rumble in the Bronx is a Hong Kong movie that was filmed in Vancouver, takes place in New York and ultimately introduced American audiences to [Jackie] Chan. That's a global movie if there ever was one."

Avengers: Infinity War"Avengers: Infinity War is much better than it has any right to be juggling all these characters. Credit a talented cast with years of established history and Joe and Anthony Russo as directors."

Raiders of the Lost Ark"Raiders of the Lost Ark is a collaboration between Steven Spielberg and George Lucas at the height of their powers. It's quite simply one of the best action-adventure films ever."

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"Together Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade represent some of the most purely fun and exciting action movies of the modern era."

The Dark Knight"Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight didn't just elevate the superhero genre to new levels. It served as a reminder of how powerful practical effects and good old-fashioned stunt work can be."

The Mummy"The Mummy is an excellent throwback of a film. There are no frills, no franchise setup (though it would get a sequel), just a good-old fashioned Egyptian adventure."

Ant-Man and the Wasp - Coming January 29th"Ant-Man and the Wasp is the increasingly rare Marvel movie with reasonably low stakes, and it helps the action at hand feel lighter and fresher as a result."

The Incredibles 2 - Coming January 30th"Pixar's The Incredibles was not only one of the best Pixar movies ever but one of the best action movies of its generation. Its follow-up, 2018's The Incredibles 2, doesn't quite reach the same heights of the original but still contains some of the best action storytelling you're likely to see."
