You may not be an action movie fan, but you continue to watch them sometimes. Some are good and exciting start-to-finish, others lose you somewhere along the way, and you can’t find out what the hell you’re watching anymore. They’re definitely a “hit-or-miss” for many movie-goers. But there are times when a movie is nearly certainly getting to flop, judging from the promo materials, but once you see it on the large screen, you only can’t look. Like, who thought that the Jumanji movie with Dwayne Johnson would be so good?
Here are 7 action movies that surprised us all!
1. “Edge of Tomorrow” (2014)
Remember how cool the movie Groundhog Day was? Woah, time loops! Infinite Possibilities! Imagine all that plus weird aliens and Tom Cruise rather than Bill Murray. to place it bluntly, people thought it had been getting to be a daily Tom Cruise action movie, nothing special. I assume they ought to have read abreast of the source material. the fringe of Tomorrow was supported a fantastic manga – Live. Die. Repeat. And if there’s one thing a mangaka knows the way to do is craft a story. In the end, we got one among the simplest movies of 2014!
2. “Dredd” (2012)
Judge Dredd is an impressive piece of magazine fiction, and therefore the old movie 1995 with Sly Stallone instantly became a cult classic. So when the news a few reboots hit the streets, everyone immediately jumped on the hate wagon. Turns out, they were dead wrong, because the 2012 version lives on to be one among the foremost underrated action movies ever.
3. “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015)
George Miller’s old Mad Max trilogy remains considered a cult classic lately. Still, the franchise has never been as popular, as when the Fury Road movie with Tom Hardy hit the theaters in 2015. They used as few CG effects as possible, which gave the movie its gritty, authentic look. Now we foolishly expect other creators to follow Miller’s example, but thus far, CGI-heavy films win 10 to 1.
4. “Alita: Battle Angel” (2019)
Remember the whole internet was suffering from hateful comments about Alita’s “giant anime eyes”? This was one of the most reasons why people decided to not see this movie. It’s an adaptation of manga and Alita is purposefully drawn differently from regular humans, since she’s an android. As a result, Alita got a number of the very best scores across the board, from critics and viewers alike. I’ve personally seen it 5 times!
5. “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (2018)
No-one within the world had faith during this movie. Who could ever imagine that Kevin Hart, Jack Black, The Rock, and Karen Gillan would make a far better movie than the first Jumanji with Robin Williams? Somehow they did it and not once but twice! The new Jumanji: subsequent Level is simply as fun. Go see it!
6. “The Terminator” (1984)
From the creator of “Piranha 2”, James Cameron, came one among the good movies of the past century. Yeah, did you recognize that before filming Terminator with a little-known bodybuilder because of the main attraction, Cameron did all kinds of trashy films? The 80-90s were a Wild West of cinematic ideas: anything went, but not everything cursed with the viewers. Luckily, Arnie and James gave us all a hell of a show. regardless of what percentage crappy sequels this franchise will get, we’ll always have T1 and T2.
7. “John Wick” (2014)
The trailers for John Wick showed us a classic run-off-the-mill revenge movie, where Keanu Reeves goes on a rampage because Theon Greyjoy killed his puppy. And while, yes, this was the verge of collapse for the retired assassin, the action scenes are where this movie shined and sparkled, sort of a polished diamond. No jump-cuts during the fights, no 50 bullets if one mag, no shaky cam. John Wick started the renaissance of recent action movies, and that we can’t wait to ascertain more from that franchise!
