Action-thrillers are crowd attractors. There is no other genre which sees audience swarming into theatres like bugs on a hot June afternoon. Taut storylines and incredible music are characteristics of a well-made action thriller, though the definition is under renovation. When a discussion for thrillers is up, David Fincher’s name invariably finds itself as part of the conversation. Many of the spots in the list are taken by his movies and deservedly so. I tried to make the list as diverse as possible and have therefore included some foreign movies as well. Here is the list of top 15 action-thriller movies of all time. Happy reading!
15. The Raid (2011)
‘The Raid’ is set solely in a 15-story building. The plot concerns Rama and his team of special operatives who get trapped in a safe house belonging to drug lord Tama. Rama now must come up with a way to fend off the incoming horde of goons with almost non-existent ammunition. Violence characterizes this well-shot and choreographed movie. Harsh plot turns and a continuous stream of action sequences keep the movie going and empowers it to become a cult action movie.
14. Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011)
