9. Bloodshot

As one of the last movies to premiere in theaters before the coronavirus pandemic shut down social gatherings, Bloodshot has had a terrible journey to existence. Once upon time, Vin Diesel - lead action movie based on a comic book from Valiant Entertainment would have kicked off a new Cinematic Universe built around its superheroes. That is no longer the case, largely due to the shift in which studios now have film rights to most Valiant characters. But even if rights werent issue, Bloodshot, which is more of a middling action movie than a promising superhero debut, doesnt inspire confidence. And in the midst of the pandemic that has reshaped Hollywood, is there even room for a new Cinematic Universe anymore? As an action movie, Bloodshot is worst kind of uninspiring: not bad enough to circle back around toward fun, not good enough at action to be even momentarily impressed by fight scene. Ray Garrison is a soldier rebuilt with the power of high - tech nanomachines that make him super strong, super fast, and able to recover from any injury. The company that does this wanted Garrison to be a guinea pig, and Garrison just wanted to use his powers to get revenge on the man who killed his wife. The twist comes when Garrison learns that his memories are forgeries, manipulated to motivate him into doing some corporate dirty work. When potential rival needs to be taken out, handlers wipe Garrison's memories to give him a new nightmare where someone different kills his wife, and lets his desire for revenge run its course. It is a wonderfully twisted state of affairs, all hamstrung by truly awful writing and action that plays like a CW show with little extra spending money from dad. Its, quite simply, boring kind of boring that quickly makes you feel like you made a mistake, even if you knowingly put it on because youre stuck at home with nothing to do for hour and forty minutes. There is something admirable about Bloodshot's unassuming take on comic book worldbuilding, but it has the unfortunate downside of making everything about it forgettable. It is hard to imagine Bloodshot ginning up much excitement for the sequel or kicking off Cinematic Universe like the earlier version of it was supposed to. But in the grand scheme of things, it is difficult to envision another Cinematic Universe getting off ground anymore. To this day, Marvel Cinematic Universe remains the only sprawling movie enterprise of its type to find any real success. Every other attempt has been abort most famously, Universals Dark Universe, and most interestingly, DCEU, which is actively being retooled under a state of plausible deniability where it does not particularly matter if its post - Justice League films are connect or not. The exception that proves the rule is Conjuring, which has spawned a web of horror movies loosely connected by collection of mementos kept under lock and key by paranormal investigators at the center of that franchise.

8. Debt Collectors

As far as action movie sequels go, new Scott Adkins martial arts vehicle Debt Collectors is sadly more like Beverly Hills Cop II than Another 48 Hours. Which is a shame, because there is nothing especially complicate, nor essential about Debt Collector, light, but very mooky buddy action - comedy that often feels like the kind of self - loving Valentine that sunny Man - child antiheroes from Nice Guys might produce if they made a movie about their lives. Debt Collectors is only a bit more where Debt Collector comes from: this sequel has all of its predecessors ' eccentricities, but none of its breezy confidence. Debt Collectors is a step back for Adkins and Director / co - writer Jesse V. Johnson, who have collaborated on some of Adkins most ambitious recent vehicles, like the deliriously pulpy revenge drama Avengement and over - top post - Indochina War period beat - em - up Savage Dog. To be fair: even the best Adkin projects have more personality than polish, though their action set pieces are consistently strong. But Debt Collectors is the first of Adkins / Johnson collaborations to be distractingly self - conscious, especially when the title characters, French and Sue, try to explain why and / or how theyre teaming up after their last outing's seemingly conclusive finale. Nothing from Debt Collector plays as well in Debt Collectors, not one - liners, humorous asides, or bargain bin melodrama. On one hand, Debt Collectors is designed to call back and therefore appeal to established fans, so it probably wo displease its ideal viewers. The movie's action scenes are also decent, though the best fight scene isnt nearly as good as the John Carpenter's movie it pays tribute to. On the other hand: that does mean there is much to the movies ' episodic narrative, which follows French and Sue as they talk a lot of smack, and get into other fights while trying to collect hefty financial debts. They eventually run into shirt - free mob boss Molly X, whose beef with boys narratively connects Debt Collector with its sequel. But while Carrs fine in his part, his character, much like the plot of Debt Collectors, feels like an afterthought since he just walking excuse to re - unite Adkins with Mandylor. In spite of this, there are some noteworthy flashes of personality throughout Debt Collectors. There film's opening scene, which not only gives Adkins and Mandylor dramatic and well - choreograph lead - in intro, but also decent transition to a fun pub brawl that score with surfing guitar and is preceded by an endearing rant about how Brits only lost the Revolutionary War because, uh, we had back up. There is also a bloody, and well - mounted boxing gym fight, and a few inspired moments of seemingly improvised humor. Unfortunately, most of the dead air in Debt Collectors is too thin to be cute. Adkins and Mandylors locker room posturing is bewildering and unpleasant, like whenever boys half - jokingly boast about their sexual exploits.

7. The Old Guard

Just as Ryan Coogler crafted Black Panther as an entry in his own directorial Universe, Gina Prince - Bythewood cast her Netflix superhero film, Old Guard, in her own stylistic image. Director Of Love and Basketball, Secret Life Of Bees, and Beyond Lights enjoy scenes where her characters get all up in their feelings, and she invites you to climb in there with them. These are some introspective characters, by - product of their having lived for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. Several times, camera lingers on their faces as they contemplate, or remember, sadness of losing someone. The film sits patiently with these moments, putting the same level of importance on characters and their emotions as it does on action. The scene of Andy savoring a piece of baklava carries the same weight as the scene of her cleaving foe with a gigantic battle ax. Andy is the eldest member of an elite band of people who appear to be immortal. The opening scene features a flash - forward to their bullet - ridden bodies; little later, we see them rising up fully healed after this slaughter, spitting out bullets that have penetrated their faces as they mow down their opponents. This squad of four is about to be joined by a fifth member, Nile, Marine station in Afghanistan, whose slit throat suddenly heals itself. She is also plagued by nightmarish visions of other team members, psychic link that, according to Booker, only shuts down once they have all Meet. Until Nile showed up, Booker was the Guards ' youngest member, joining in 1812. Since Mad Max: Fury Road cements Theron's ability to weld her Oscar - winning acting skills onto the bodies of fierce warriors who kick ass, Old Guard treat US to a great, plane - bound fight between Nile and Andy. Two showcase their battle credentials while Andy offers gruesome examples of Niles ' ability to heal. With Niles braid, natural hairdo and Andy Karen - style coif, their battle plays like unintentional and vengeful commentary on those angry can I speak to manager videos plaguing social media. What does feel intentional, however, is the inclusivity inherent in the depiction of Immortals, both in flashbacks and in its current timeline. They are played by a variety of different races and it never once feels force or pandering. In addition to observing the humanity of its heroes, Old Guard also employ Prince - Bythewoods penchant for grandiose, melodramatic gestures that shouldnt work at all yet play out masterfully. Think about Noni on that balcony in Beyond Lights, or Monica setting terms of the climactic game in Love and Basketball. Here, moment occurs between Andy's teammates Nicolo and Joe. By virtue of their shared immortality, these men have been together for hundreds of years. They are lovers whose Meet Cute occur when they are constantly killing each other during Crusades.

6. Extraction

Release date: April 24 Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Rudhraksh Jaiswal, Randeep Hooda, Golshifteh Farahani Director: Sam Hargrave Why it is worth watching: Tossing aside Thor's massive hammer and trimming his gnarly Avengers: Endgame beard, Chris Hemsworth picks up an assault rifle and gets to work in Extraction, new Netflix shoot - em - up that re - teams Australian actor with his former Marvel filmmaking buddies Joe and Anthony Russo, who produce project. While Hemsworth's gun - toting commando protagonist, Tyler Rake - yes, that's his name - lacks comic - book superpowers and Norse god strength, he can take beating and keep fighting, quality that serves him well as he rescues and protects the child of an Indian drug kingpin. At one point in the film's big show - stopping chase sequence, which stunt - coordinator - turn - Director Sam Hargrave presents as one long take, Rake gets slammed by a speeding car. His solution? Locate a bigger vehicle, preferably a large truck, and hit the bad guy back. That type of strategic thinking should give you a sense of Rake's tactical prowess and of the movie's blunt - force approach to action filmmaking. There's dreary, perfunctory quality to the storytelling, especially as it marches toward its bloody finale, but Extraction has enough big fight scenes to make it required viewing in a year without a new John Wick movie to look forward to. Where to watch: Stream via Netflix

5. Blood on Her Name

Noir is full of characters doing unreasonable, unwise or just downright stupid things to achieve some untenable goal. Their choices are criminal, driven by basic instincts and are often wrap in delightful, hardboiled amorality. Plot situations escalate, tightening screws as antiheroes become more and more desperate. These people inhabit a bitter little world where there are no happy endings. Everybody has fatal flaw and doing the right thing never crosses anyone's mind. Self - describe Southern Gothic neo - noir Blood on Her Name attempts to tweak some of aforementioned qualities of noir by saddling its protagonist with conscience. It was a bad decision that might have worked had co - writer and director Matthew Pope structured the film differently. What starts out as an intriguing cover - up of murder becomes more and more hopelessly convoluted by films ' insistence on delivering its information to you in drips and drabs. Allowing viewers to piece things together on their own is always welcome, but films desire to surprise and outwit make it contrive. Leigh is beheld to doing right by folks, whether it her juvenile delinquent son, Ryan or the family of the man whose murder she may have committed in self - defense. Not that shes saintat times, she lashes out unfairly in anger and shes on some kind of pills whose dose, according to her dealer, depends on how much she wants to forget. She is also an ex - convicted felon whose arrest had something to do with turning her place of business into a chop shop. Those illegal activities come back to haunt her immediately after fade - in. Aid by moody and atmospheric color cinematography by Matthew Rogers, Blood on Her Name opens with a riveting post - murder sequence. The victim lay in a huge puddle of congealed blood on the floor of the auto garage, bloody wrench near his body. We hear Leigh terrify, labor breathing on the soundtrack before we see her huddle in the corner. Pacing is very good here, allowing the US to watch as Leigh considers the best course of action. She wrap body, cleans up the crime scene, takes weapon of choice and hauls ass out of there. She disposes of wrench in the lake as she paddles across it in a boat, but takes body with her. Its clear that Leigh is no master criminal, but she makes mistakes that would get you an F in Committing Crime 101. For starters, her auto body shop has security camera and has recorded the entire murder. She tosses the CPU into dumpster without even bothering to erase it. I can buy that part, I mean, this is a small town and it is doubtful anyone would go dumpster diving for tech products. What she does next I most certainly do not buy. She disposes of body in the house of mans relatives, leaving anonymous note in their mailbox that basically say My bad!

4. Lost Bullet

French action film Lose Bullet was released on Netflix on June 19. This is director Guillaume Pierrets ' first feature film, starring Alban Lenoir, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Ramzy Bedia, and Stefi Celma. Pierret is clearly a fan of action movies as he emulates the genre in this entertaining FAST - pace film. A French film has reached the top of the Netflix chart in France, and is number 4 in the top 10 films in the UK this weekend. If you like Taxi, there is a good chance youll enjoy this movie too. Alban Lenoir is Lino, kind of genius mechanic, who is great at building ram cars. The film opens as Lino and his friend, Quentin, break into a jewelry shop by ramming his car, full speed, into the shop. He ended up going through the whole building, with a total of four layers of concrete, as police chief Charas later boast. Unable to flee the scene like his friend because his seat belt is stick, Lino is caught by police. The Chief of the special drug unit, Charas, seeing his potential, offered Lino a deal to work as a police mechanic in his GO FAST task force. All seemed to be going well for Lino as Charas offered him early release after working for the police for nine months. However, following the fatal incident, Lino is wrongfully accused of murder, and must now prove his innocence. The only proof he has is bullets from crime which are lodged in missing car. He has twenty - four hours to find the car with the lost Bullet to claim his innocence. Although the plot is predictable, this is a well - written script full of suspense that relies on a story that feels familiar. This means that lose Bullet is able to focus solely on action without delving into characters background. Every character's motivation thus also become imply without needing further explaination. France has a long history of action films that were made particularly popular in the 1970s by actor Jean - Paul Belmondo, who famously performed his own stunts. Lose Bullet, however, clearly Take its inspiration from American action movies, such as Jack Reacher or the series Shield. Before his career Take off as an actor, Alban Lenoir, who play Lino, built a short career as a stunt man. Much like Belmondo, Lenoir thus does many of the stunts on film himself. Lenoir was brought into the project very early on, rewriting some of Dialogue with Pierret. In an interview, Lenoir reveals that they write action so that stunt doubles and CGIs would not be needed. There are some great action - packed sequences, most notably the scene in police station, when Lino fights with a dozen cops. The choreography of FIGHT here feels heavily physical. The final car chase also has some quite spectacular stunts. This is a movie that offers exactly what IT says in tinan action movie that gives you exactly what you would expect IT to.

3. Birds of Prey

Release date: February 7 Cast: Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett - Bell, Rosie Perez Director: Cathy Yan Why it worth watching: Birds of Prey, recently retitled Suicide Squad spin - off starring Margot Robbie's joyfully defiant Harley Quinn, didn't exactly light up the box office in the same way last year's Oscar - nominate Joker Movie do, but it's lot more fun. That's mostly thanks to tightly choreograph, inventively stag fight scenes, which Director Cathy Yan films in a way that channels both the hand - to - hand combat of John Wick and the more baroque tendencies of Joel Schumacher's Batman era. If convoluted flashback structure occasional grates and some jokes fall flat, action more than makes up for it, which is pretty rare for a big studio superhero release these days.

2. Time to Hunt

As context for those unaware, South Korea does not have the equivalent of the United States Second Amendment. Instead, country enforces strict gun control. Privately owned weapons must be stored at police stations and fatal shootings hardly ever happen there. That is important TO know when watching Korean movies: It explains why the desperate hero in Oldboy fights his way through the hallway armed only with a hammer, or audiences are shocked when knives come out at the end of Parasite. Director Yoon sing - hyun was born in the US, but attended film school in Korea, where the high - impact survival thriller TIME TO HUNT took place. A story of four young thieves, relentless killer and a whole lot of bullets, Yoons ' ultra - violent, Hollywood - style second feature is a radical departure from his more introspective 2011 student film, Bleak Night, and from the countrys gun laws in general. Helmer clearly has Christopher Nolan and Michael Mann in mind, putting his own spin on detached coolness and precision staging seen in movies like Dark Knight and Heat, although his plotting is a mess. It isnt South Korea as we know it, but a dystopian near future, following financial crisis that has devastated the economy and ushered in mass protests and political unrest. Early establishing shot reveals a grungy modern city not unlike the one into which Clive Owen stumbles after coffee - shop bombing in Alfonso Cuarons ' Children of Men: mix of old and new cars pass on pollution - clogged streets, overshadowed by massive electronic billboards and police - state video surveillance. Yoon commits himself to world - building early on, which serves the movie well later, when it comes TIME TO orchestrate a series of atmospheric set - pieces in deserted streets and derelict buildings. Drugs and guns What hell happen? Bewilder ex - con Jun - seok asks his best friends, Jang - ho and Ki - hoon, after surveying a seemingly unrecognizable metropolis. It would be a fair question if immoral young men were criminals themselves. Jun - seok spent the previous three years behind bars, doing TIME for a job he miscalculate, but Korean Won has crashed so badly during interval that their score is now worth perhaps $2 000 at best. Jun - seok suggested they plan one more heist. He knows illegal gambling dens where stacks of US dollars sit behind the counter, practically begging TO be hijack. He also knows arms dealer who can hook them up with the kind of heavy artillery seldom seen on Korean screens. And he figured out where they could all go with money, describing a simpler life on the beaches of Taiwan. Time TO HUNT is slow TO get start, but once Jun - seoks plan goes into action, it hardly ever decelerate. That is because three amigos plus inside man, sing - soo, who works in a casino, fail TO consider that there might be consequences to stealing from a bunch of gangsters.

1. Bad Boys For Life

Release date: January 17 Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Paola Nunez Director: Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah Why it worth watching: in what hasn't exactly been a great year for action movies so far, Bad Boys For Life has to be the biggest surprise. Give its lengthy production history, its January release date, and departure of series Director Michael Bay - action auteur got a winking cameo here, perhaps taking a break from shooting Netflix's 6 Underground - this movie could have been a disaster. Instead, Smith and Lawrence easily slip back into roles that made them action movie icons in the 90s and writers find way to update the garish, over - top aesthetic of the series for the franchise era. In wise decision, directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah don't even bother trying to top the excess and mayhem of Bay's Bad Boys II. Bad Boys For Life is a gentler, sillier movie than its predecessor, less interested in moments of vulgarity than in scenes of sitcom - like human connection and familial melodrama. There are explosions and car chases through the streets of Miami and jokes about getting too old for this shit, but the material is give light touch that lets two stars do what they do best. Where to watch: Rent via Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, and YouTube

Black Widow

Black Widow director Cate Shortland sees the action sequences in her film as being different than the rest of MCU's superpower - base set pieces. The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Film is center entirely around Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff, who has previously appeared in a total of eight different Marvel Studios films. Natasha made her MCU debut in 2010's Iron Man 2, and quickly became an integral part of the franchise, though her arc culminated in tragedy in last year's Avengers: Endgame. Black Widow sees Johansson reprising her role as Natasha alongside a string of MCU rookies, including Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour. The Long - await standalone film, which takes place after the events of 2016's Captain America: Civil War, has been in development since 2004, but continues to endure a long and tumultuous road to release. Originally scheduled to hit theaters in May 2020, film was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and there are rumors it may be delayed again. The film is expected to explore Black Widow's backstory, finally revealing some long - overdue details about the character. Speaking with Total Film, Shortland dove into her vision for the film. Specifically, filmmaker teases Black Widow's action sequences, her approach to them, and how they differ from the rest of the films in MCU: as one of only characters without enhanced abilities, Black Widow is often much more vulnerable in dangerous situations than her superhero allies. She more than held her own, though, using her skills and training as a high - power assassin to get the best of her enemies in battle. Shortland's different approach to Black Widow's action scenes is also indicative of larger aspects of the film that separate it from the rest of MCU. Bill more personal story than Marvel fans may be used to, Black Widow will likely inhabit a much more intimate tone than is usual in the superhero genre, one that directly highlights relationships between Natasha and her loved ones. Despite the film's multiple delays, excitement for Black Widow has not wan. However, in being delay, film has impacted the rest of MCU, as well. The film is intended to kick off Phase 4 of MCU, and as result of its release date delays, Marvel Studios has been forced to push back the rest of their slate as well. However, Disney has made sure the hype surrounding Black Widow has not diminished in the meantime. Shortland's interview is the latest in a string of press appearances by the film's cast and crew, while a series of details and images from Black Widow have also been released in recent weeks in an effort to keep fans satiate. Fortunately for Disney and Marvel too, Black Widow is a film that fans have been waiting a long, long time for, and - even if the wait for it continues to be longer than intended - they will surely still turn out in droves whenever it does ends up finally hitting the big screen.
