There’s never a bad time to sit back and watch a good action movie.
The nonexistent (or besides-the-point) plot, the constant explosions, the muscular heroes doing what needs doing: What better way to take time out from the daily grind?
And with the release of the Charlize Theron’s “Atomic Blonde” this weekend, we’re really in the mood for more butt-kicking fun.
Thankfully, Netflix has a great collection of action movies right now, including the first “Star Wars” standalone movie, “Rogue One,” and the classic “Hellboy.”
Here are 17 action movies we highly recommend that you can stream on Netflix:
Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck go to space to save the world from a hurtling asteroid. With “Bad Boys” and “The Rock” already under his belt, director Michael Bay became the top action director going into the 2000s with this film.
“Captain America: Civil War” (2016)
The blockbuster features one of the greatest comic-book battles (though everyone is pulling their punches) and a pretty intense fight at the end between Cap, Iron Man, and Bucky.
“Doctor Strange” (2016)
If trippy mystical action is more your thing, this is the movie for you. The origin story of Dr. Stephen Strange has some unique action sequences, topped by some A+ CGI.
