If you accept the challenge, your mission is to find the one that is right for you. We are here to help you and have compiled a rotating list with the Best Action Movies on Netflix.
NOTE : The following titles can be streamed on the U.S. Netflix.
The Adam Project (2022).
It’s an amazing combination when Shawn Levy, Stranger Things and Deadpool 3 get together. The Adam Project feels like a throwback to science fiction films of the 1980s. It is one part Star Wars, one part Back to the Future and has plenty of Spielbergian flair. The Adam Project begins quietly as it builds chemistry between its main characters (played primarily by Ryan Reynolds and Walker Scobell), but soon the film explodes into an action-packed action movie of laser swords, stylish hand-to-hand combat and other dazzling effects.
The Adam Project is a great film for all ages and one of the best films of 2022. If you’re looking for a film that packs punches in both visual and emotional capacities, The Adam Project will bring a smile to your face while fueling the fires of your action-loving heart.All Quiet on the Western Front (2022)
For obvious reasons, the action in
All Quiet on the Western Front is more realistic than most other movies on this list. The visceral combat is intense and plays bigger than you’d expect, given the film’s straight-to-streaming release structure. Berger’s film expands upon the original story, giving more weight to Paul’s journey and confronting disillusionment and fatalism about his early death. Imagine that you are able to handle real-life action that is more difficult than fiction. In that case, All Quiet on the Western Front is a bold exploration of war, the destruction of the spirit, and the lies we tell ourselves to overcome adversity.Army of the Dead (2021)
Your mileage for Zack Snyder’s unique film style may vary from one film to another, but the man sure knows how to make a zombie action movie.
Army the Dead is about a group of mercenaries who infiltrate Sin City to gamble on a zombie outbreak. The epicenter of a zombie infested quarantine area is $200 million in cold cash. But it’s not easy to get there.Army the Dead
stars Dave Bautista and Ella Purnell. I wouldn’t be too attached to any of them. Army of Death is brutal and not everyone will make it to the City of Second Chances. Why? It could be due to the undead hordes and back-stabbing criminals that lurk around every corner. Feel free to cash in your chips for a great time with this action-packed zombie romp that launched a new franchise if that sounds like a good time.The Big Four (2022)
Timo Tjahjanto, the Indonesian filmmaker behind
Headshot and The Night Comes For Us, is a favorite here at JoBlo. Tjahjanto makes movies that shock your system and leave an impression with his combat sequences. Tjahjanto’s The Big Four combines realistic violence with a lighter energy. If I had to compare it to something, I would point you toward Jackie Chan’s extensive library of films or Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu Hustle.The Big Four
tells the story of an elite assassin that murderous gangsters target after sparing a girl’s life during a massacre. With cat-and-mouse elements akin to some of cinema’s zanier martial arts films, Tjahjanto’s latest roller coaster takes his signature style to new heights while making you clutch your sides and double over in pain.Carter (2022)
Carter, a man (Joo Won) must escape death while trying to figure out who he is, how he ended up in an apocalypse, and who the voice in his ear is telling him where to go to survive. Byung-gil Jung wrote and directed
Carter, starring Joo Won, Kim Bo-Min, Sung-Jae Lee, and Camilla Belle. As one of the more brutal action films on Netflix, Carter spills enough blood and guts to make any film fan squirm in delight. The movie is a fast-paced thriller that features intense action scenes, death-defying Physics, questionable camerawork, and enough bodies to make Drowning Pool jealous. This film is not for the faint-hearted cinephiles. One scene in the film shows a man getting his face pushed into concrete while he’s being pulled along by a speeding van. It’s quite disturbing. It was worth watching twice. If you don’t mind CGI muzzle flare and love hand-to-hand combat and startling action, Carter is a roller coaster of violence on Netflix.Day Shift (2022)
When was the last time you watched a vampire action movie that knew how to kick ass without taking itself too seriously? J.J. Perry’s
Day shift10 is a comedy roller coaster of unearthly delights that features Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco and Snoop Dogg as vampire hunters. Day shift10 is a humorous film about removing bloodsuckers from the map. Foxx plays a vampire hunter who is on the brink of losing his family unless they make a huge score while battling the undead. Franco plays Seth, a pencil-pushing narc who suffers a bizarre fate that I won’t spoil. Snoop Dogg plays Big John Elliot. He is a charismatic, blunt-smoking, veteran vampire hunter. The team discovers a plot to allow vampires to expand into new territories. I think it’s one of the better vampire films of recent years and one of the better action movies on Netflix.Da 5 Bloods (2020)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5RDTPfsLAI
Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods isn’t your typical action movie. The film follows four veterans and their friends as they attempt to end a terrible chapter in their lives and recover a treasure that was left behind. Starring Delroy Lindo and Clark Peters, Norm, Norm Lewis Jr., Jonathan Majors Jr., Chadwick Boseman and Melanie Thierry.
Lee brings a unique style to this gripping drama about war, paving the way to inspiring shots and powerful performances from the cast. The group will have to do more before they can complete their mission. They will also need to push themselves beyond their physical and emotional limits before they can rest. Da5 Bloods is one of the many action movies available on Netflix. It has a delicate balance between heroism, scenes of growth, and scenes of strength of character. If you dig action with a loaded clip of catharsis and closure, check out Da 5 Bloods.The Forgotten Battle (2020)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGiR5ZiEWkMWe’re going back in time and across the pond for this one, folks. The Forgotten Battle Dutch war film that focuses on World War II and specifically the Battle of the Scheldt in 1944. Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. directs this intense display of brutality, starring Tom Felton (
The Flash), Gijs Blom (The Letter for the King, Dead & Beautiful), Jamie Flatters (Avatar: The Way of Water, The School for Good and Evil), Susan Radder (Spring, The Takeover), and more. Paula van der Oest wrote the screenplay, focusing on a British glider pilot (Flatters), a Dutch boy fighting for the Germans, and a Dutch female resistance member fighting for freedom as hellfire rains down around them.Focusing on the complicated lives of the main cast, The Forgotten Battle explores the harshness of war, the sacrifices soldiers make to achieve victory, and how strength in numbers guarantees nothing without blood to line the path toward peace. The Forgotten Battle remains quiet until all goes wrong and war takes its toll. The film features impressive performances, intense battle sequences, nail-biting aerial combat, and a disturbing body count that reminds us of what conflict takes from those involved.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022)Rian Johnson’s sequel to 2019’s Knives Out is already dominating the Netflix charts, quickly becoming the streaming platform’s sixth-biggest movie. Although GlassOnion
lacks action, the film engages Sherlock Holmes and makes you think like a grumpy trainer who loves to cause pain. Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Leslie Odom Jr., and Madelyn Cline create the star-studded cast, with
Glass Onion offering a twisty mystery in a posh island setting with colorful characters.Glass Onion places a new spin on what made the original Knives Out so much fun. The new setting gives the film a fresh look and allows Craig to shine as a Kentucky-Fried detective with a keen eye for detail. Once the mystery gets going, the film becomes a non-stop thrill ride of suspicion, intrigue, and action as the characters turn on each other while searching for the truth.The Gray Man (2022)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmllggGO4pMThe Gray Man features solid performances from the film’s leading players, including Ana De Armas, Billy Bob Thornton, Jessica Henwick, Alfre Woodard, Rege-Jean Page, Dhanush, and more. The film is also filled with action sequences that are awe-inspiring, which Netflix has not spared any expense. A sequel and spinoff in The Gray Man 02001010universe have been approved. You can watch the first film in this franchise now.
What happens when two of Hollywood’s most famous stars are paired with a brotherly duo at top of the filmmaker food chain.
is now available! The Gray Man is now available on Netflix. It stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, and two CIA operatives from opposite ends of the spectrum. Based on the 2009 novel, The Gray Man
is directed by The Russo Brothers. It tells the story about an agent whose true identity cannot be revealed. A psychotic ex-colleague puts a bounty on Evans’ head. A global manhunt ensues, resulting in action, deception, and a mustache on Evans’ face you won’t soon forget.Lesson Plan (2022)If you enjoy movies like Dangerous Minds or The Substitute, you might want to enroll in Netflix’s Polish revenge thriller
. Daniel Bernardi wrote the script. Daniel Markowicz directs the film. The story is about a former cop (Piotr WItkowski), who takes over a class of toughs to get to the bottom of the crime. The closer the former cop gets to his students, it becomes clear the institution is where some of the city’s young and notorious criminals gather to terrorize beyond the schoolyard.Lesson Plan is unique among most Netflix action movies in that the violence is slightly more realistic than one might expect. The hits are hard. There aren’t many outrageous sound effects or contortions to make things more exciting. Sometimes simplicity is better. This movie is entertaining enough to merit a portion of your Friday night chill. I enjoy seeing foreign action movies and expanding my horizons. LessonPlan will teach your basic knowledge about action movies. Oh, and yes, there is an English-language dub.Lost Bullet (2020)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S82RlFIvcPE
Take your beret out of the closet and order a baguette with your next meal because we’re going to France for the French action thriller Lost Bullet. Guillaume Pierret directs a script written by Pierret, Alban Lenoir, and Kamel Guemra. Lost Bullet
10 is about Lino (Alban Lenoir), an ex-con and getaway driver who designs vehicles for police officers in charge of cleaning the streets. Lino must overcome the machinations of dirty cops when his mentor is killed and he must then use his skills to chase down and put him behind bars. Although the movie isn’t as stylized as
, or as gravity defying as the Fast franchises, there’s still plenty of destruction and derring do. There is an English-language dub.Lou (2022), Allison Janney will soon join the ranks with action heroes like Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver. A storm rages in
Lou. A young girl is kidnapped by her mother. Her mother teams up with a mysterious woman to rescue her. Lou is a throwback action flick from the 1980s and 1990s that will delight action fans. Janney shines as Lou. She is a take-no prisoners recluse with demons lurking beneath her skin. Lou is a wrecker shop as much John Wick, Lorraine Broughton or Joey King’s Prince. Janney delivers a brutal but believable performance. Lou’s companion Hannah (Jurnee Broughton) also brings pain to the action in this riveting movie. Both women are determined to kill Hannah’s daughter because hell hath no fury for a mother scorned. Whoever took Hannah’s daughter is in for a world of pain.My Name Is Vendetta (2022)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKRYPFKQdZgIf killing a person’s wife is enough to brand you with a death wish, how will that person react when you kidnap their daughter too? Cosimo Gomez’s
My name is Vendetta
will show the truth to these unfortunate souls. Alessandro Gassmann, Ginevra Francesconi, and Alessio Pratico star in Cosimo’s Italian crime thriller about a former mafia enforcer and his daughter, who flee to Milan to plot their revenge against the criminals who killed their wife and mother, respectively.My Name Is Vendetta brings a nasty bit of business to Netflix with a revenge tale soaked in blood, close calls, and unthinkable acts of violence. It’s a father/daughter action movie, and the only character is a car thief and a nasty with a knife. If you find yourself in Santo and Sofia’s path, it’s been nice knowing you.The Night Comes For Us (2018)Undoubtedly the most brutal film on this list,
The Night Comes for Us
The Raid10 series. Timo Tjahjanto directed the movie (May The Devil Take You
). Joe Taslim (MortalKombat
The Redemption), The Redemption) starred with Iko Uwais (Snake eyes), The Redemption). This ballet of brutality leaves audiences with more broken bones that than any ICU full of failed daredevils. I recently watched this movie for the first time and have no shame in admitting that I spent much of the film with my fist in my mouth, my teeth gnawing on knuckles, and nearly breaking the skin.The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf (2021)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J365hQpaWRwWhile we’re waiting for Henry Cavill to return as Geralt of Rivia for The Witcher Season 3, there’s The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, an animated spin-off focusing on the origin story of Geralt’s mentor and friend Vesemir.
