8. Debt Collectors

Playing out like an escalating series of boss battles throughout LA's seedier side, impossibly dependable action Director Jesse V. Johnsons Debt Collector follows cash - strap Iraq - vet - turn - martial - arts - instructor, French, trying to keep his dojo afloat by making a few collection runs for local mobster. As French learns about the vocation of sleazebag - on - sleazebag violence alongside perpetually clammy Sue, long - time loanshark enforcer more than willing to let French do all the work, Johnson compiles a surprisingly broad glimpse of City of Angels that has gotten used to feeling desperate, palm trees limning World grease with intimidation and building on casual violence. As such, every encounterin which French pummels increasingly unpummelable human edifices, whatever room they fight within just tear to piecescould be French last, moral implications of his job catching up to him with every shattered jaw or devastated collar bone. Choreograph by Luke LaFontaine, battles within lack grace of many of Johnson's outings with Adkins, but that probably intend: Pulling from 90s buddy action flicks and inching at sweaty homage that lands somewhere between Tony Scott and Luc Besson, Johnson ca help but capture Adkins in motion with intuition, pace and sense of place that lift Debt Collector from VOD time - filler to yet another microbudget triumph care of one of best action auteurs weve get working Right now.

7. The Old Guard

Being a superhero isnt easy gig, idea that has inspired recent cinematic explorations ranging from sublime to ridiculous. That same concept also drives Gina Prince - Bythewood s Old Guard, Netflix - produce take on Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandezs 2017 comic book miniseries of the same name, but her version is as fresh as any comic book movie made since Superhero mania swept multiplex. Even films own star Charlize Theron previously interrogated weirdly relatable theme that being a superhero can be real slog in Peter Berg Hancock. Here, shes oldest member of the Old Guard, kick - ass mercenaries who happen to be very old and b mostly immortal. And as the film opens, she finds herself again pondering the value of fighting seemingly same battles on an unending timeline. Despite familiarity, Old Guard manages to be both very grounded and very entertaining, marriage of expectations and twists unlike little else the genre has inspired even during its most fruitful times. Related Grand Army Review: Netflix's Problematic Euphoria Imitation Is All Over Place Shooting Trial Of Chicago 7 to Rhythm Of Aaron Sorkin's layer Script relates Must - See Movies and TV Shows on HBO Max Lord Of Rings: Everything You Need to Know About Amazon's Big Money Adaptation Prince - Bythewood, while still best Know For her singular romantic drama Love & Basketball, Is no stranger to comic book work, having been long attach to direct Silver and Black Sony production meant to team up Spiderman stars Silver Sable and Black Cat and even directing episode Of Marvels short - live Cloak & Dagger series. But her greatest strength lies in her interest in complex people, making Old Guard a perfect fit for her wide - ranging sensibilities. Oh, and action. Do we mention action? We Will. Still, Prince - Bythewood is not entirely free of constraints of genre and some of the film's narrative trappings will not surprise, from undercooked villain and winking conclusion that just barely subvert standard post - credits reveal this time, twists are before credits!. But films and particularly Ruckas Script, leave plenty on the table for further incarnations, making it another rarity: comic book movie that earn its franchise potential. Andy, aka Andromache Of Scythia, if youre feeling historical, has See It All before, and Theron enters the film with world - weariness that is understandable even to beings that have lived for thousands of years. Old Guard opens as Andy makes tentative steps to return to her clan and their self - imposed duty to do good through all manner of holy ass - kicking. Their mantra is simple enough do what they think is right and while it kept them alive for hundreds upon hundreds of years, it doesnt seem to be making much difference in the world itself. The world isnt getting any better, it is getting worse, one character spits, observation that it is tough to fight, even removed from a world in which superheroes are possible.

6. Extraction

Bruh, if you want more movies like Extraction but haven't explored the world of Asian action movies, then have a seat and take the pacifier out of your mouth. Movies like Triple Threat make Extraction look like Romper Room. Like Extraction, plot follows mercenaries hired to protect someone, but instead of one muscular dude, team is made of three of today's biggest action stars who combine to throw four dozen punches before you can even cock your arm back: Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, and Tiger Chen. The plot is a secondary concern in these movies, with shooting, punching, impaling, bone - breaking, neck - snapping, and blood - spurting much more important.

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 - described 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. The pacing is very good here, allowing 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

Release date: June 19 Cast: Alban Lenoir, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Ramzy Bedia, Stefi Celma Director: Guillaume Pierret Why it worth watching: Alban Lenoir, star and co - writer of this proudly sturdy French thriller, has a rugged - yet - droll Statham - like quality, that rogue - like charisma that never reads as desperation. He plays Lino, hapless thief who turns into an unlikely car mechanic for police, and he spends most of the movie attempting to clear his name for a murder he didn't commit. The best scene in the movie, police station beatdown where Lino escapes from the interrogation room and fends off a number of officers with all available objects, occurs relatively early on, but Lenoir keeps you engaged as the plot plays itself out. Each head - denting, eyebrow - singing stunt gives him another opportunity to keep his cool. It's exactly the type of brisk, clever movie that tends to get buried in Netflix's algorithmic shuffle. Where to watch: Stream via Netflix

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 big studio superhero release these days. Where to watch: Rent via Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, and YouTube

2. Time to Hunt

James Mangold directed this remake of the 1957 classic, which was based on a short story by great Elmore Leonard. Russell Crowe and Christian Bale are excellent as bad and good guy, respectively, from Ben Foster. It is a tense, well - crafted genre piece that seems overdue for reappraisal. Remember when Harrison Ford was the countrys fictional president? Revisit those simpler times with this great 1997 thriller in which Ford plays world leader who is aboard a titular plane when it is hijacked by a team led by Gary Oldman. As tight as action movies get, this is also a reminder of a time when blockbusters were exclusive property of comic book fans.

1. Bad Boys For Life

It's not really a surprise that Bad Boys For Life will be the first film to hit 200 million this year. When it hits theaters on January 17, fans and critics alike responded positively. General consensus has been that the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence - lead action thriller was the perfect reboot of beloved franchise. And that's been reflected at the worldwide box office. With 406. 9 million thus far, it's currently the top - grossing film of the year by sizable margin - it has more than 100 million over the second highest - grossing movie and nearly double the second runner - up. There are, as per usual, several huge comic franchise films. From Black Widow to Wonder Woman 1984, some of our favorite superheroines could be poised to bring in some big box office revenue if history is any indication. Then, there is Venom 2, which could follow the surprising success of its 2018 predecessor. Fast and Furious 9 earns massive buzz off the strength of its first trailer alone. And later this month, Disney is set to deliver its long - await live action adaptation of Mulan, which should kill it at the worldwide box office.

Avengement

Movies about people seeking violent revenge for the loss of loved ones have fairly ubiquitous across decades, but this unassuming and beautiful film entry from Germany distinguishes itself almost immediately. It unfolds 5000 years ago as a Neolithic man hunts three ravagers who kill his family, and in recognition both that their language is a dead one and that the emotional beats of narrative are universal, there are no subtitles. It is a thrilling experience with brutal clashes, stunts set against nature, and even a sniper sequence involving bows and arrows. Read our review here, currently available on streaming and DVD.
