Crime

The Night Comes for Us (2018)

This relatively recent new-noir action flick also comes from Indonesia. Ito, a deadly and powerful gangster, has a 180-degree change of heart after he rescues Reina, a young girl from the remains of her massacred village. The resulting carnage — and there’s a lot of carnage — revolves around one man battling his former gang members to save one girl and, in some ways, himself.

American Gangster (2007)

Denzel Washington plays real-life gangster Frank Lucas in this biographical (but highly dramatized) film depicting Lucas’ rise to prominence in the Harlem crime world and his eventual takedown by Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe), who would go on to defend him in court. Money, drugs, violence, Denzel — what more do you need?

Watch Now

Wanted (2008)

Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy, and Morgan Freeman star in this movie about super-elite assassins. It features what is probably the most satisfying way to quit a job (it involves a keyboard and teeth). Fun fact: It’s actually based on a comic book.

Watch Now

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Who says that action movies can’t be funny? Hot Fuzz stars brilliant comic actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two police officers in a quiet English town who stumble upon one of the biggest conspiracies ever. The only thing better than the laughs is the violence.

Watch Now

Snatch (2000)

Like Hot Fuzz, Guy Ritchie’s Snatch is also a comedy. A diamond heist gone wrong, illegal bare-knuckle boxing, Brad Pitt nailing an awesome accent — for the love of dogs, this is a great crime flick with just enough murder and violence to make it an action movie. A similar Guy Ritchie movie, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, is also on Netflic.

Watch Now

Wheelman (2017)

Like the popular Tom Hardy movie Locke, this film tries to unfold an entire plot within a car. We follow Frank Grillo’s getaway driver as he reluctantly commits to a robbery that goes south.

Watch Now

The Boondock Saints (1999)

Brothers Connor (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy MacManus (Norman Reedus) go on a vigilante binge in Boston, brutally taking out anyone they deem a bad guy following what they perceive to be a calling from God himself. They’re investigated by an FBI agent (Willem Dafoe), who is tempted to let the two keep doing the Lord’s work.

Watch Now

Triple Frontier (2019)

Triple Frontier is a new-ish Netflix film that came to the streaming service in March. An ensemble cast — Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Pedro Pascal, Charlie Hunnam, and Garrett Hedlund — stars as a crew of ex-military Americans who plan on robbing a known cartel member and setting themselves up with the retirement funds their jobs did not provide.
