These are movies that pump you up with their raw energy and exuberance. So let’s take a look at the list of top fast paced movies ever that will leave you super charged. You can watch some of these best fast paced movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

14. The Dark Knight (2008)
Arguably the most beloved movie of the century, ‘The Dark Knight’ is a film that manages to grab your attention right from its opening sequence which brilliantly introduces us to the antagonist.

Now this pacing may even come off as one of the film’s major drawbacks since Nolan doesn’t provide spaces for character development and instead lets the plot take the driver seat. But not for a moment does it fail to engage you and by the time it ends you’re left in complete awe.
