  • The Old Guard (2020)

This comic book adaptation has stepped up to fill the blockbuster hole in a year that has been virtually absent from theaters. The Old Guard stars Charlize Theron as Andy, a warrior who was formerly Andromache of Scythia. James Copley, a former CIA operative, exposes Andy and her fellow eternal mercenaries (Chiwetel Ejiofor). The arrival of Nile Freeman (KiKi Layne), a Marine who becomes the first new immortal in a long time, complicates Andy's effort to retrieve her secrets. As still unidentified foes draw in, Andy grudgingly takes Nile under her wing. Theron herself informed Variety that a sequel draft is finished, with production set to start in early 2022, so we might be looking at a franchise here.

  • The King (2019)

Shakespeare's Henry V has been cleverly reinvented and modernized in The King for those who want their action with a more historical bent. Shakespeare should have become a filmmaker because David Michôd's magnificent war film features stunning photography, enormously expansive set pieces, and terrible representations of medieval warfare. Young Henry V, played by Timothee Chalamet, is an uninterested heir who is forced to assume the throne following his father's sudden death. The Dauphin of France seizes the chance to start a war since he thinks Henry is helpless and ineffective. But there's more going on than what first appears. The Dauphin performance by Robert Pattinson alone is worth seeing.

  • Army of the Dead (2021)

Army of the Dead is entirely original to Zack Snyder, who first gained notoriety with his remake of Dawn of the Dead. Casino owner Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada) seeks to retrieve his stolen millions from a vault before Sin City is destroyed when Las Vegas succumbs to the zombie apocalypse. Dave Bautista's character Scott Ward steps in at this point. He is an ex-mercenary who is persuaded by Tanaka to form a squad and attempt to enter and exit Vegas prior to the explosives going off. When Scott's estranged daughter Kate Ward (Ella Purnell) insists on going, the mission becomes more challenging. Additionally, none of Scott's team is ready for what they will discover amid the Vegas ruins.

  • Spectral (2016)

One of the first Netflix original movies, Spectral, presents its central character, Clyne, with an unexpected predicament (James Badge Dale). Clyne's duty as a DARPA scientist is to look into cases when American soldiers in Moldova come with apparitions that resemble ghosts but cannot be killed, hurt, or easily seen. Clyne learns that the apparitions are a man-made menace after meeting with General Orland (Bruce Greenwood) and his forces as well as CIA agent Fran Madison (Emily Mortimer). However, being aware of this and figuring out how to stop them are two different things. Nothing, however, seemed to stop their onslaught.

  • Gunpowder Milkshake (2021)

When Scarlet (Lena Headey), Sam's mother, became too burdened by her role as an assassin, she left Sam (Karen Gillan) behind. Sam continues her mother's assassination career in the present. However, Sam breaks the terms of her agreement when she uses money that was stolen to pay the ransom for Emily (Chloe Coleman), a little child who is under Sam's care. Sam and Emily are being pursued by competing assassins and crooks when Scarlet unexpectedly returns to her life. Both the mother and the girl will need to cooperate if they both want to live. Additionally, as implied by the film's title, Gunpowder Milkshake has a lot of gunplay.

  • Blood Diamond (2006)

Amidst Sierra Leone’s Civil War, a Zimbabwean ex-mercenary, Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio), and a Mende fisherman, Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou), see their fates become joined in a common quest to recover a rare pink diamond. Both Africans, Danny and Solomon have extraordinarily different backgrounds and circumstances that challenge their partnership as each seeks the diamond for complementary — and oppositional — purposes.

  • Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Maybe nobody asked for more Sherlock Holmes, but Guy Ritchie nonetheless succeeded in putting a fun new spin on the classic sleuth. Basically, he made Sherlock a Victorian-era action hero. Ritchie’s fast-paced, stylized entry into the Conan Doyle universe stars Robert Downey Jr. as the titular character and Jude Law as his trusty companion, Watson. As a criminal storm gathers over London, the already world-famous detective finds he’s up against something he hasn’t seen in a very long time: A challenge.

  • Rambo (2008)

Picking up 20 years after the final film in the classic Rambo series, this 2008 release finds John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) living a peaceful life running a longboat on the Salween River in Thailand. However, not far away, the Burmese-Karen conflict rages on the Thai-Burma border. Rambo has long given up fighting, but when missionaries are captured by the Burmese Army, Pastor Arthur Marsh implores Rambo to help. Despite his reluctance to resume the violence, Rambo knows what he must do.

  • Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol (2011)

The Mission: Impossible franchise rose to new heights with Ghost Protocol. After IMF operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is blamed for a terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, the U.S. President invokes “Ghost Protocol,” disavowing Hunt and leaving him without any resources or backup. Now, Hunt must clear his name and restore his agency while trying to prevent another attack by the organization that framed him.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Why are there so many Spider-Man movies? Because they’re pretty much always just good, clean, action-packed fun. This incarnation starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker is no exception. Peter is navigating his newly-discovered powers, his crush on Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and a compelling mystery left behind by his long-missing parents. When he discovers a briefcase that belonged to his father, Peter is led to Oscorp and his father’s former partner, Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans). But soon both Peter and Connors’ alter-egos are put on a collision course as Peter must rise above the fray and become Spider-Man.

  • The Gentlemen (2019)

The Gentlemen is another stylized, multi-million-dollar blowout for quick-cutting auteur Guy Ritchie. The story centers around Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), an American cannabis kingpin operating in England. When the news hits the street that Pearson is looking to sell off his drug empire, a shady host of two-timing criminals and other malcontents crawl out of the shadows to blackmail, double-cross, and milk Pearson for everything he’s got. While The Gentlemen gets a bit convoluted and starts to feel a little longer than its almost two-hour runtime, you can tell that everyone on-screen is having the time of their lives. That gets to the real heart of the matter when it comes to Guy Ritchie. The man delivers popcorn action ensemble flicks, and he delivers on his Ritchie niche almost nine times out of 10.

  • Black Crab (2022)

Director and co-writer Adam Berg's post-apocalyptic action thriller is titled Black Crab. In a world torn apart by a ruthless conflict, Noomi Rapace portrays Caroline Edh, a gifted speed skater who joins a squad of five warriors. Caroline and her other spies are tasked with making a dangerous journey behind enemy lines in order to deliver a secret gift to a research center that could put a stop to the battle. Black Crab, an icy-cold take on the well-known "save the world" action subgenre, is an engrossing movie and an adrenaline rush supported by its harsh settings and gruesome deeds of war.

  • The Vault (2021)

Freddie Highmore plays Thom, a great engineer who joins a gifted group of professional thieves, in Jaume Balagueró's The Vault. The objective? Break into a secret underground room beneath the Bank of Spain to steal the reputed riches that are there. Thom and his colleagues must make the most of every last second if they want to escape with the various valuables in the vault because the plan is taking place against the backdrop of Spain's World Cup. The Vault is a thrilling and enjoyable movie, even if it doesn't provide many novel ideas. Instead, it excels at the classic "experts thinking on their feet" action components.

  • Hardcore Henry (2015)

In this avant-garde first-person POV action thriller, stuntman Andrey Dementyev plays "you." You are Henry, a man raised from the dead with no memory, according to a lady claiming to be your wife (Haley Bennett). However, as soon as you come to, your wife has been abducted, and you feel that you should definitely aid her. You are also being fired at. Suddenly, everyone in Moscow's criminal underground seems to want you dead, with the exception of Jimmy, a mystery British man (Sharlto Copley). Even he probably has hidden agendas.
