Certain stories demand languid pacing with more focus on the characters, visual aesthetics and the atmosphere of the film. However, there are stories that demand a more fluid pacing with utmost focus on the central plot of the film. These are movies that come off as more entertaining and accessible because of their ability to captivate you right from the opening scene. These are movies that pump you up with their raw energy and exuberance. So let’s take a look at the list of 15 fast paced movies that will leave you super charged.
