I like that.
I don't care a whole lot for psychological thrillers or scary supernatural movies, in fact, I hate supernatural movies, but I don't seem to have a problem with guns and fighting and blood...as long as the blood isn't super bloody. :p
So here are a couple of my favorites in no particular order. I know that everyone has different tastes and all that, so please, use your own discretion if you decide to watch any of these.
Come on, people, it's Harrison Ford playing a wrongly convicted man, on the run to prove that he's innocent. That means it's awesome!
Plus, Tommy Lee Jones is the U.S. Marshal that is after him.
This is definitely a adult movie. It's intense, there is some swearing and there are at least three rather brutal fights. Also there is one brief scene where Richard has a dream about his late wife. It's very short and mostly suggested, but we always fast forward through it. ;)
There is also a short scene where Richard is tending his own wound and you see his side pretty exposed. You could also fast forward through that if you'd like--it is very brief.
In my opinion, the beginning is the scariest part of this movie. Most of it is just a chase. And I do so love a good chase! And did I mention that it's Harrison Ford? *Grin*
Now that I made that movie sound terrifying and awful, let's move on to the next one, eh?
This is kind of my go-to intense movie. When terrorist take over a plane and threaten to blow it up on American soil, a group of special ops sneak on to the plain in mid-air (Yeah, it's pretty epic) and try to take back the plan and defuse a bomb before the military shoots the plan down.
This movie is fun. It's very clean except for violence and swearing and the characters are pretty cool. The most violent part of this movie is at the very beginning as well, so if you're squeamish, don't look. ;) This movie deals quite a bit with terrorist attacks in general and military violence.
My favorite character is this guy
Who just so happens to be the voice of Sid in Ice Age.
I think the ending is particularly good.
A woman is kidnapped. Using the shattered remains of a phone, she taps wires together until she dials a number.
This guy answers his phone and now he's stuck trying to help a women he doesn't even know.
Yes, my friends, that is Captain America. *Smirk*
Again, violence, swearing--one particular word over and over again. There's a beach scene near the beginning that we fast forward (it might be two scenes, I can't remember) and an off-color conversation that we mute. Other than than, I think it's clean.
This movie is a nice mix of really intense stuff with some comic relief thrown in. Once it gets going it's non-stop action. This poor guy is so out of his depth. ;)
Mission Impossible--Ghost Protocol.
I am not really into any of the other mission impossible movies, but I must say, I love Ghost Protocol. It's not scary, really, but it's fun, crazy and completely...impossible.
Jeremy Renner is so cool in it.
I think that the unbelievable, over-the-top action movies might be some of my favorite. The humor in this movie is great and the characters work well off each other.
There is a little bit of innuendo and the girl wears a slinky dress, but that's it. I even like Tom Cruse in this one and that doesn't usually happen. Though I still feel he should have his hair shorter.
Simon Pegg? Awesome.
The Bourne Movies
All of them.
A man is pulled from the ocean by a fishing crew. He has no memory of who he is or what he does. He can just do things. Things that scare him.
On top of all that, there are people trying to kill him and he has no idea why.
There is loads of chase scenes--both rooftop leaping, building scaling, and car chases. Love it.
I love the way Jason Bourne's character develops through the movies. He is so awesome in the last one. The end was perfect.
There is one kissing scene in the first movie that gets carried away, but after that there isn't anything else in the rest of the series. Which is awesome. I don't like romance in my action movies. :D
If I were to warn about anything it would just be swearing an intense action/violence.
This scene is from the first movie and it's one of my very favorite scenes. It's near the beginning and he hasn't discovered anything about himself yet. This is the first time he fights and it freaks him out a bit.
So there they are: a few of my favorite action movies. Please do your own rating checks and all that. But if you do watch any of these, let me know how you like it!
How many of you like action movies? Do you have any suggestions for me? I'd love to hear what movies you guys enjoy. Action or not. ;)
And to finish up, does this movie look awesome to anyone else?
