Good action movies can get your adrenaline pumping and keep you at the edge of your seats. If you are looking for such action-packed thrillers, then look no further. Here are some of the best action movies available for streaming on Netflix.
Air Force One (1997)
James Marshall is the President of the United States. While traveling on Air Force One with his family, a group of terrorists attacks him. With no other way to escape, he leaves his diplomacy behind to pick up an automatic weapon to protect his family and others on board the plane. The role of Marshall is played by Harrison Ford and it turned out to be one of the biggest hits of his career.
IP Man (2008)
There is no doubt that IP Man is the best modern martial art movie to appear before the Hollywood audience (even though it is technically not a mainstream Hollywood movie). Donnie Yen dons the role of the fictional instructor of Bruce Lee. When a Japanese General starts to terrorize a small Chinese community, Yen decides to use his martial arts skills to stop him and protect the community.
During a bank robbery, a getaway driver gets a mysterious call to double-cross. With the lives of his family members on the line, he has no other choice and the robbery goes sideways. Now, the caller is asking him to reroute the money to another place. As the double-crossing starts to take its full impact, the driver is forced to move on an increasingly dangerous path.
The Night Comes For Us (2018)
If you like the hyperactive action film Raid, then you will definitely enjoy watching this Indonesian action movie with a similar structure. An Assassin and his team of Triad killers are out to protect a young girl. With the action starts, the violence becomes as brutal and bloody as that of a hardcore slasher-horror movie. If you are a fan of such action sequences, then this should be your first pick.
The Debt Collector (2018)
Just like Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal, Scott Adkins movies are also filled with martial art moves. In this movie, he plays the role of a martial arts trainer who is forced to take up the role of a bill collector. If you are a fan of the cult Van Damme movies of the past era, then Scott Adkins has done a wonderful job in bringing it back with his go-for-broke fight scenes.
The latest addition to Netflix’s catalog of action movies is the newly released Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth. Playing the role of a mercenary, Hemsworth is tasked with rescuing and protecting the son of a drug dealer who got kidnapped. The movie is penned by Joe Russo (one half of the Russo Brothers) and is filled with some bone-crushing action stunts.
