- John Wick Chapter 2: The sequel to a wildly successful first film, the Keanu Reeves vehicle was a hit with critics and audiences. One critic called it an “adrenaline-pumping blockbuster polished to near perfection”.
- Taken: Liam Neeson shines in this modern action classic as a former Secret Service agent who just wants to enjoy his retirement. But when his daughter is kidnapped, it sets the scene for a high-octane, fast-paced action thriller that you can never watch too many times.
- Unchartered: Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas team up for a glorious action adventure about a lost treasure. Based on the hugely popular video game of the same name, the critics who loved it called it “a fun ride with a clear respect for the source material”.
- Die Hard: Considered by critics and viewers as one of the greatest action films ever made, Die Hard enjoys a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. As one critic wrote of Bruce Willis’ protagonist John McLane: “Die Hard lets its hero solve problems with more than bullets and fists. His best weapons are ingenuity and wit.”
