If you subscribe to Netflix and use it in any frequency. Then you know that a lot of it is like that. A big part of it is a bargain, and about three percent of it is worth it, and sometimes it is difficult to find the real gems of the film there, except that they have this annoying tendency not to carry much, which neither (a ) is outdated or (b) is overly dreadful.
Still, we've done the work and found that there are amazing action movies on Netflix right now, some of them real classics. Think of this list as your lifeblood, especially if you can not take another stand-up special or are in the mood for something violent. Here are the 20 best action movies on Netflix right now.

V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta is the story of a man who makes a revolution against a stifling, tyrannical impulse government leading a dystopian Britain. So you know it's a fantasy. If the film were based on a true story, it would only show how people used and twittered politicians who did not like them for a few hours, or until everyone left the theater.
There's a reason why it's the first Marvel movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture. Ryan Coogler's attitude to the adventures of T'challa, the warrior king of the fabulous African kingdom of Wakanda, is based on the classic superhero conflict – more tolerant, cooperative hero. absolutist, stand-alone nemesis – as a debate together the heritage of racism, poverty and direct action. And in Michael B. Jordan's Killmonger, the movie gives us one of the most charismatic superhero villains ever – so much so that it's sometimes difficult to not look for the apparent evil.
This is the one in which Nicolas Cage steals the Declaration of Independence. That's all you need to know, but here's more: he's a treasure hunter following a family legend following a series of clues digging up a secret ancient treasure hidden by the founding fathers somewhere under Washington. It is the mashup of The Da Vinci Code and Raiders of the Lost Ark (with a little enemy of the state ) that you never knew wanted.
Hellboy comics have a big cult behind them, but you do not need to know anything about them to accept this really perverted, funny and exciting mix of genres and ideas. This is a movie that combines superheroes, dark religious themes, paranormal and humor – making everything look so effortless. They seem to be producing more Hellboy films, but it remains to be seen if any of them can recapture the magic of the film, director Guillermo del Toro's first attempt of the series.
Ip Man 1, 2 and 3
If it is not clear, Ip Man 1 2 and 3 is not the name of a terrible one The film is more of a trio of biopics loosely based on the life of Ip Man, a famous martial artist who has actually coached Bruce Lee. The best of the best is the first. The second is about his move to Hong Kong. And the third has Mike Tyson as a street fighter. For this reason alone, it is worth watching.
One of the best Marvel contributions of recent years succeeds in moving in the opposite direction from Black Panther and Infinity War , (And before the Marvel stans is after us: both are good movies, and indeed one of them is on this list.) Kiwi director Taika Waititi takes on the ongoing adventures of the God of Thunder and has a really weird spirit: It Der humming superheroes and the soap opera theater stage are set aside and send Thor instead to a colorful party planet, which is led by Jeff Goldblum, where he is enslaved as a gladiator and sentenced to fight against The Hulk. Meanwhile, an extremely Goth Cate Blanchett, who plays Thor's long-lost evil sister, takes his home from Asgard and leads to a truly apocalyptic final battle. It's fun and games until someone loses a planet to the flames of eternity.
The killer robot from the future movie that started it all. The film, which put James Cameron on the map and proved to the world that Arnold Schwarzenegger could act (as long as he played a stoic, expressionless, vague Teutonic killer robot of the future) has not lost any of its bite because it is still sort of Creepy movie is. For All The Big Action Scenes The Terminator also has a Slasher track that goes in part through Schwarzenegger's icy intransigence and the general drought of the world.
Following the success of the more expansive sequel, the series continued a more epic bath – and reduced yields. If you look at the original again, you have to wonder if you should double the horror as well as the action for the next race with this franchise.
On its first release, many people were dismissed from this adventure as a would-be Raiders with sloppy effects and an overly humorous storyline. But it's a shout, and its reputation has grown right over the years. Brendan Fraser is adorable as a (yes) vague Indiana Jones-style adventurer, and Rachel Weisz has a perfect comic timing as a librarian with whom he works to stop the return of Imhotep, an Egyptian priest who will do nothing else resurrected his beloved. At a time when action movies were getting a little too serious and grandiose, The Mummy reminded everyone that it was all about having fun. However, avoid the sequels; The sequels are really sloppy and bad.
From Dusk Till Dawn
A cult about two scumbag brothers (George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino) clashing with a pastor and his two children to a Mexican strip club for a criminal contact at dawn to meet. The only problem is that the club is filled with vampires. We think it's based on a true story.
Okay, everyone hated this Han Solo spin-off when it came out, and it was the only Star Wars movie that actually flopped. and they changed the directors in the middle, and no, as it might dare to take on the role of Harrison Ford. But Solo is actually a kind of space-raiding film with a wide range of different worlds and a surprising sense of verve. And what a relief it was to briefly break away from the usual Star Wars soap opera. I entered with a million reservations and it convinced me. And I am downright disappointed that they have developed ideas for a sequel.
There are a lot of James Bond flicks on Netflix right now, so this one has a double task to fulfill, both as a proxy and as a summit. Daniel Craig's first outing as 007 defined the character for a new era and defined a really gritty, dangerous movie – which no one had ever said about a Bond movie before he came aboard. With Casino Bond stopped being a dinosaur and a joke – which meant we could finally say goodbye to all the necessary, tired gags because he was a dinosaur and a joke. If you're in the mood for the goofier bond of yore, we can recommend For Your Eyes Only (perhaps the best of the Roger Moore era) or Thunderball (a Sean Connery) high Point).
This film is the story of a London police officer who is in an idyllic village, which he initially considers to be a boring beat. If it ended there, of course, it would be boring. Instead, he encounters a series of suspicious killings that have been written off as accidents. It then becomes a buddy action comedy about cops that dissolve a massive conspiracy. The more you like the British, the higher this will be on your personal list.
A subterranean sports movie meets kick-ass action-flick and surreal comedy in Stephen Chow's hit about a group of former Shaolin monks who form a football team and fight with their brutal, cynical opponents. The Kung Fu is exciting and hilarious, but what makes it so special in itself is the absurdistic degree to which Director Chow is ready to take any visual gag.
Director Michael Mann's The reinvention of his legendary 1980s television series was not the hit everybody wanted to hope for when it came out, but it's still a wonderful movie a growing cult sequence. Mann chose cool and immaculate, instead of being cool and immaculate and shooting with digital video cameras (back when digital video was unbeatable) to get us into the action. With its open-minded romance, whipping narrative, and surprising authenticity in the work of the police, this is a crime like no other.
The Raid: Redemption
It is a miracle that the whole country has not made it Do not try to learn the indigenous Indonesian martial art of silat after this movie is released has been. With the great Iko Uwais playing Gareth Huw Evans' Action Masterpiece a rookie police commando, trying to move through a huge apartment complex ruthless drug lords, where apparently every retired junkie tenant and deadly henchman wants to kill him. If you are not amazed at the deadly, dancelike grace of stunt work, you'll be frightened by all the bites, punches and headhammers.
In the medieval Chinese action of Zhang Yimou The epic, mysterious warrior, Jet Li joins a group of assassins determined to seek revenge on a new expansionist of the Emperor of China. The film is told in a complex flashback structure framed by a conversation between Jet Li and the Emperor himself. Is it a funny apology for absolutism? Or a subtly realistic search for the only way to meaningfully change an authoritarian state? In any case, it's full of some of the most spectacular (and beautiful) action sequences you'll ever see.
Kill Bill Vol. 1 1 and Vol. 2
When Quentin first announced to Tarantino that he was going to make a big action opus about a brutalized and forever dead former Murderer (Uma Thurman), who is bloodily avenging her former comrades, many of us were skeptical: Could the guy, whose main focus was a jolly hard guy, and cool esoteric pop culture credentials, in fact, apply an honest-to-God action sequence? Well, the bastard showed it to us. Whether iridescent martial arts, 89-headed sword fights, sensational body combat or even animation sequences – this two-piece masterpiece has it all. And in the end you will cry to boot.
The Wild Bunch
Any action director who overstates the slow motion these days (* cough * ZackSnyder * cough *) has a great debt to the great Sam Peckinpah, who uses this style technique in a series of action -Classics in the 1960s and 70s turned into pure visual poetry. Nobody has managed to use it the way it does today. Watch the legendary Western's legendary western shootout: Peckinpah interacts with different speeds filmed at different speeds, creating small narrative loops within the broader sequence. We observe how characters unintentionally dance when mowed. It is scary and beautiful and pathological. No wonder that the audience then revolted. And it's no wonder he has made history as one of history's greatest westerns.
It's an ice-cold classic, but Heat really counts as an action movie? It's certainly a fantastic robbery movie and one of the big thrillers. And it's an unparalleled showcase for the stars Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, as the seasoned thief planning a big new job, and the obsessive LAPD detective trying to catch him. But think like this: If you're looking for an action movie and you're watching Heat you're not going to be disappointed.
We are pretty sure that the deafening, shattering raid on central banks and the PTSD shootings brought us when we first saw it on the opening night in a theater. And the climate-political persecution between De Niro and Pacino is one of the most moving chases ever to be involved in the film, with an unforgettable finale.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
(Yes, that's them I call it Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, but that's an absurd change of title and is not to be taken seriously.) To this day there is nothing comparable despite the sequels and imitators. Harrison Ford's first use as a brave archaeologist Indiana Jones, in which he races against the Nazis to explore the ark of the covenant, is still one of the greatest action films of all time, a relentless pursuit that piques an eye. Popping sequence after another, everyone is heartbreakingly more entertaining than the last one.
