There’s a reason action movies are so popular. The best action movies can thrill you with a dazzling combination of car chases, fight scenes, and special effects. The best action movies can also, and this is important, be wonderfully dumb. Indeed, the plot of an action movie is typically fairly unimportant, as long as the set pieces that get you from sequence to sequence are compelling enough.
If you’re looking for some great action, you don’t need to look much further than these, which are some of the best action movies on Amazon Prime. Whether your goal is to find something gritty and realistic or something completely silly but joyous nonetheless, Prime has plenty of great movies to choose from.
There are people who love heartwarming Christmas movies. Then there are those who appreciate a good spin on the season. Violent Night incorporates Christmas as the backdrop of the traditional action genre as Santa Claus defends a house from murderous criminals who look to rob the residence of everything they’ve got. David Harbour of Stranger Things fame plays Saint Nick. He uses an offbeat sense of humor and masculinity to make this version of Santa into a believable action hero. Anyone who wants something a bit different this holiday season should enjoy Violent Night!
