Almost all of us have played the part of a ‘Rambo’ inspired warrior or a ‘Bond’ inspired superspy in many of our childhood plays. We love adventure— or maybe a little more than — any romance. Adventure heroes drive exotic cars, handle mysterious weapons, and save the world from cold-blooded villains for us. More than a mere adrenaline rush, an action adventure film is our window to feed the explorer amongst all of us. Once in a while, a ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ can save our weekend after the desperate workdays. With that said, here’s the list of really adventure movies on Amazon Prime that are available to stream right now:
14. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
Set against the backdrop of the brutal Civil War between the Union and the Confederacy, ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ follow three men who embark on a quest to find a fortune. ‘The Good’ Blondie is a skilled gunslinger whose eyes set on the money. ‘The Bad’ Angel Eyes is a mercenary who will finish his task at any cost. ‘The Ugly’ Tuco is the most wanted outlaw fleeing the bounty hunters. Together, they comb the American Southwest for a mysterious strongbox with stolen gold worth $200,000. The plot revolves around the shaky triangle between the three, who have to keep each other alive to locate the gold hidden in an anonymous grave in a cemetery. ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ is directed by Sergio Leone and features an ensemble cast that includes Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef in the lead roles.
13. Logan Lucky (2017)
‘Logan Lucky’ is a roller-coaster ride that takes us through an edgy heist attempt. The movie follows Jimmy Logan who loses his job one fine fine morning. A desperate and vengeful Jimmy has only one way to bounce back — to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during a NASCAR Race. He convinces his brother Clyde and sister Mellie to help him to execute the robbery. But they need the expertise of Joe Bang, a professional safe-cracker who serves his term. Now, the Logan family has to break Joe out of jail, blow open the racetrack safe vault, flee with the loot, hide the huge amount of money, and return Joe to the jail. Everything in their plan looks fine, except a family curse looming over the Logans. Directed by Steven Soderbergh from a screenplay by Rebecca Blunt, ‘Logan Lucky‘ features Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, and a surprisingly anew Daniel Craig, in the lead roles.
12. Annihilation (2018)
