We have to admit that we can never get enough of the kick that good ol' action and crime thrillers hold for us. When it comes to films, we honestly have a hard time choosing between those pheromone-inducing racy action movies, and those featuring our preferred clan of superheroes that occasionally grace the silver screens.
However, ever since we laid our eyes on the trailer of Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam starrer 'Triple Frontier', there is no denying the fact that it has gotten us hooked and left us asking for more. So while we still have to wait a little longer for 'Triple Frontier' to hit our screens, what better way to wait for it, than to get prepped and build it up to the showdown?
So here is the plan. Let's check out these action movies in the meantime, before 'Triple Frontier' officially makes its way onto our screens tomorrow.1. Polar
A neo-noir action film, it has been directed by Jonas Åkerlund. The story traces the journey of Duncan Vizla, world's top assassin, also known as The Black Kaiser. All set to reap the benefits of retirement, The Black Kaiser finds himself back in the game much against his will, when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. The new army of killers are younger, faster, and ruthless who will stop at nothing to have him silenced. Mads Mikkelson's stellar performance and the raw edginess of the plot will give a edge-of-the-seat experience.2. Wonder Woman
A wonderfully presented superhero origin story, it charts out Princess Diana's transformation from a naive warrior to an inspiring superhero. The film may seem like an an over the top representation of a story that presents the protagonist as an enigmatic and compelling force. If nothing else, who can fault the charm and insane performance that Gal Gadot managed to pull off with this one.3. Hold The Dark
This American thriller directed by Jeremy Saulnier, follows the story of a writer named Russel Core who is called in to visit an Alaskan village and in search of wolves that killed three children. In a bid to unravel the truth, the wolf expert instead finds himself discovering a harrowing mystery. The intense plot and riveting picturisation will surely keep you on your toes!4. Transformers
Another action movie which needs no introduction because it is pretty much a classic. A 2007 American film series directed by Michael Bay, the movie is all about the adventures of the two intergalactic races of robots, Autobots and Decepticons. They battle for the ultimate power source, All Spark and sets out to enamour the audience with its thrilling and one-of-a-kind action packed journey.5. Outlaw King
'Outlaw King' happens to be a brilliant tale that traces the journey of the exiled crowned king of Scotland, Robert the Bruce, who leads a band of outlaws to reclaim his throne from the clutches of the English. With Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce, his charisma and persona pervade the entire narrative of the film. Truly a must watch, if you like to explore and are looking to movie beyond the mainstream.
