If you are into action movies, here’s a list of 3 action movies on Netflix to have your time well-spent!
The Old Guard (2020)
Genre: Action, Thriller, Based on a book
Story: Andy (Charlize Theron) is the leader of an immortal warrior, also known as The Old Guard. Their mission has been, for centuries, to intervene with major and historical events, in order to save human lives and stop wars or any other evil in the world, always working in the shadows. They now meet again, in order to stop the greatest threat of their existence: a relentless businessman of pharmaceuticals, who is trying to extract their special powers. At the same time, a new immortal comes to the surface…
It is actually a superhero movie, in its own way, with a rockstar cast. The plot of the film is quite intriguing, with fast, fierce action scenes and historical references. As you might expect, you can find lots of fighting and shooting. The film may surprise you though, as it focuses deeply on the human side of our characters. There is an unexpected but beautiful love story, betrayal, fear, while the toughest-of-all Andy shows a great amount of affection for the new member of the group. The bad guy is actually a greedy scientist, prepared to kill anyone who stands between him and his immoral purposes…
Stars: Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli
The Extraction (2020)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Based on book
Story: A cartel war leads to a kid’s kidnapping. A Mumbai gangster kidnapped his imprisoned rival’s son. His syndicate hires a black-market mercenary, Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth), to save the little boy, while he is trying to redeem himself. Although the odds are against him, he tries his best to complete his mission, as he has nothing to lose.
The breathtaking action scenes are what makes this film worth watching. Non-stop shootings and running are a great fit for Hemsworth, who is actually quite satisfying in this role. There may not be a multi-faceted storyline, but if you want to see a real action movie, you will absolutely have your wish fulfilled! The main core of the film though is the relationship developing between a loner as Tyler Rake and the little boy, who create a father and son bond by the end of the film.
Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Bryon Lerum, Ryder Lerum
