The Best Action Movies on Netflix 2018

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Maybe not the typical action movie, but it is still packed with action, and it was a way better movie than it’s sequel, The Last Jedi. This is good action, even if you do not like the Star Wars movies a lot.

The Accountant

Here you will meet Ben Affleck in the role of an accountant. He has a very special personality, and I thought this would simply be a movie about a guy with a brilliant brain. But, Ben Affleck doesn’t only do good with numbers, he is a fantastic fighter.

Den of Thieves

What happens as a group of bad-ass cops who follow no rules, try to get hold of some thieves even worse than themselves? This is the story of Den of Thieves, and it is hard-core action, just the way you like it.

Doctor Strange

If you are a fan of the Marvel Universe, then Doctor Strange is an action movie that will bring you lots of joy. He isn’t as strong as Thor, but he has some special skills that make him able to stop time, move objects, and so much more.

San Andreas

This is Dwayne Johnson is a disaster movie like we all love them (or hate them). He is out there to save his family, and that might be a bit boring (as he isn’t out there to save the world), but if you love earthquakes and action, this is a good movie for you.

Edge of Tomorrow

It isn’t a brand new movie, but Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise is a fantastic movie. This is an action version of the Groundhog Day, as Tom Cruise wakes up to the same day over and over again. And that isn’t just any day, it is the day when they are about to invade Normandie in France.

Batman: The Dark Knight

This is the best of all Batman movies ever. The movie is best-known for the performance of Heath Ledger as the Joker. He won an Oscar for his role, but unfortunately, he died not long after the movie was released. But, this is a fantastic Batman movie worth watching.

Now You See Me

Are you a fan of magic? Watch Now You See Me, a movie packed with action and fantastic magic tricks that will make you want to watch the movie over and over again. This is one of my favorite movies from the last years, and even though I didn’t enjoy the sequel as much as this one, it is still a fantastic series.

The Commuter

The last movie on the list is The Commuter. This is an action movie with Liam Neeson in which he has to understand what is going on on a train. He is hired to find the one person that shouldn’t be on the train, but he doesn’t know why he needs to find the person. This is an action movie that will keep you stuck to the chair for 90 minutes.

Can I watch Justice League on Netflix?

I have been waiting for Justice League to come to Netflix for a long time. It came to HBO Now in July 2018, but what about Netflix?

As I write originally wrote this article, Justice League could not be seen in any single Netflix region. But, it has changed since then, and now you can watch Justice League on Netflix. But, where? And is it worth watching?

I am a big fan of the Wonder Woman movie, but I totally hated the Batman v. Superman movie. But, luckily DC Comics have made some brutal changes in Justice League, making Batman a much nicer personality, and thus the movie was much easier and better to watch. Again I must say that Wonder Woman is my favorite character in the movie, but the other characters also do a very good job making Justice League a nice movie to watch.

Justice League did not make it to the list of top 10 grossing movies in 2017, but it made it to the top 15 list. In other words, this was a successful movie, and people flocked to the cinemas in order to watch it.

Watch Justice League on Netflix

Today (October 25th, 2018), I discovered Justice League on Netflix in Australia. So, if you live in Australia, or follow my instructions on how to access Australian Netflix, you can go ahead and watch Justice League on Netflix right away. It is well worth the job, at least if you like super hero movies like this one. Not totally convinced yet? Take a look at the Justice League trailer beneath.

Watch Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Netflix

It has been a while since I watched Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I am still quite depressed thinking about the movie, but if you want to watch it, then you might be lucky. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is now on Netflix!

I like Batman, at least most of the time, and I like Superman. I therefore had great hopes for Batman v Superman, even though the title itself sounded terrible. The thought of two superheroes who are nice actually fighting one another sounded like a catastrophe to me. And guess what, as I watched the movie I simply couldn’t stand the atmosphere of it, especially not the way Batman was. One of my big heroes who is nice to people and wants to believe the best about people… and now he is suddenly completely different and so depressed and bad, that I could not really stand this movie.  I am not sure about you, but I would for sure join the Rotten Tomatoes score which is currently around 27%. At iMDB they are way more positive and the movie has a score around 6,5/10.

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gad Gadot can not save the movie, and neither can Amy Adams. The only actor that I actually liked in this movie is Jesse Eisenberg who played the role as Lex Luther in a great way. But, after originally writing this article I became a big fan of Gal Gadot in her role as Wonder Woman in the Wonder Woman movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, then it will hopefully come to Netflix soon.
