From all the choices we get, action films are far from little, as there are countless thrills and adventures made to enjoy, and certainly many more to come. These stories never cease to entertain, with their extraordinary chases, obstacles and perils that keep our heart beating fast and our eyes wide open. Wether they take place in an exotic and unknown faraway land, in a futuristic dystopian world or in the metropolitan streets we walk through everyday, we stick to the protagonist’s goal and always hope for the best. From classics to recent innovations, here’s the list of top rewatchable action movies ever that we never get tired of watching.
15. Blood Diamond (2006)
Set during the Sierra Leone Civil War occurred from the 90’s to the early 2000’s, “Blood Diamond” is a true gem in depicting the brutality of this war between the country’s rivaling forces and the atrocity and violent chaos that changed the lives of many and destroyed the future of many more. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer Connelly starring in a story centred around the possession of a rare diamond, expect a turbine of action that will leave you stuck to your chair gasping for air. Their great performances are perhaps the main aspect that makes this a great movie, however let’s not forget the immensity of the real-life problem that gives these blood diamonds their name.
14. Sin City (2005)
“Sin City” isn’t a film like any other. The style and techniques which it goes for give us a total visual change from the millions of films strolling in front of our eyes everyday. With its neo-noir genre and black and white palette (for the exception of a few objects which contain bright colour) it truly empowers the concept of its several crime stories, derived from the Frank Miller’s graphic novel of the same name. With action leading the way, we find actors such as Jessica Alba, Benicio Del Toro, Brittany Murphy and Bruce Willis present in the most brutal and sexy forms ever. And there’s more if enjoyed, as it contains a sequel released in 2014 which prolongs this one-of-a-kind mood and atmosphere into another set of stories.
