Crime

The Raid (2011)

The Raid (also stylized as The Raid: Redemption) is an excellent and bloody Indonesian thriller. The premise? A group of highly trained police officers is trapped in an apartment building run by a powerful crime boss. The result? The officers must fight their way out. With dwindling ammunition. And no reinforcements.

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?

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.

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 Netflix film coming to the streaming service on March 13. 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.
