The Fast and The Furious
When someone mentions action, the first movie that comes to mind in The Fast and The Furious. With eight installments so far, this film series has entertained the world for many years.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Dwayne Johnson are the perfect trio of action kings. Coupled with Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, and many more, there’s no way the film series wouldn’t be a hit.
There’s something for everyone here. Fast cars, girls, guns, whatever you like, F&F has it! Despite the passing of Paul Walker, the series has continued and will do so in his memory.
He was a fantastic actor and a loving person. We will never forget him.
Another legend of action movies is Marvel. Famed for their superhero creations alongside Stan Lee, the studio has offered some amazing films over the years.
Ranging from Spider-Man and Ant-Man all the way to huge blockbuster films such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers.
For some of the older generation, these might not be their cup of tea but there’s plenty to choose from and I’m sure one of the films will tickle their fancy.
A lot of the actors aren’t known by the older generations of the world. One that is though is Benedict Cumberbatch, who played the lead role in Doctor Strange.
It’s not all superhero films either. Maybe you prefer anti-hero films, which Marvel has lots of. Ryan Reynolds starred in Deadpool in 2016 and it’s 2018 sequel – Deadpool 2 mix a nice amount of action with comedy and it created a wonderful film.
Venom, starring Tom Hardy is another great anti-hero action film from Marvel.
There’s just so many to choose from!
Die Hard Arguably some of the most iconic films in modern history are the Die Hard film series.
Bruce Willis stars as cop who always seems to end up fighting bad guys and throwing their bodies out of windows.
In the four films, we see him battle German terrorists, computer hackers, and so much more! Of course, there’s also the age old controversy – is Die Hard a Christmas film?
While it is marketed that way, there’s a sincere lack of Christmas joy throughout the original movie. Although, it is set at Christmas time so could it be considered an Xmas movie for the family to watch? That’s up to you to decide.
Underworld For those interested in more sci-fi action movies, Underworld has got you covered. It’s not a cheesy film series though, it definitely has its fair share of violence and gore.
Kate Beckinsale stars as a sexy vampire tasked with hunting down Lycans (werewolves) as they live and move among humans.
While this sounds simple, there are a few bumps down the road as the films progress. In a bid to not give too much away, its best to just watch the series.
Resident Evil Another action movie which features a woman in the lead is Resident Evil.
Based on the hit game series, Milla Jovovich stars in this zombie virus outbreak film series, battling the evil Umbrella Corporation, all while trying to avoid being eaten by hundreds of thousands of infected humans.
With six films total, there’s lot of action, character development, and of course, a few twists and turns. Resident Evil is definitely one to watch.
