What makes good action movies? What does it take to create the best adventure movies? Is it the fighting, stunts, car chases, war or explosions? Action adventure movies mean something different to everyone. Below, we’ve carefully selected some of the best action movies, full of explosion-filled scenes and brilliantly choreographed fighting spectacles (we’ve even slipped in some with heroes who deliver cheesy one-liners just before the last rocket grenade is fired!). Shut your brain off as you immerse yourself in the very best list of action films…
If you want to watch the latest action movies, you’re in the right place. To some, “action” means violence, but good action movies give us something more, turning shootings and clobbering into something clever and – often – remarkable. Amongst our favourite action adventure movies, we’d recommend The Equalizer, Logan, Rogue One, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to name just a few.
Want to immerse yourself in the best action movies of all time? Want to know a list of adventure films that offer more than just shootouts, blasts, and car races? Good action movies ultimately serve to get your pulse racing. Check out our action movies list…
