Ride Along 2 action comedy
15 "As his wedding day approaches, Ben heads to Miami
with his soon-to-be brother-in-law James to bring down a
drug dealer who's supplying the dealers of Atlanta with
product." Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are at it again. Looks
funny as hell!
Deadpool action adventure comedy February 12 "A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is
subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated
healing powers, adopting the alter ego 'Deadpool'." Funny all
the way through, Ryan Reynolds is just charming enough to make
Deadpool loveable and not a douchebag. I was afraid I would hate
him, but I've seen it twice and I want to see it again. The
Action is really enjoyable; the insults, hilarious. You just
gotta love it. The opening credits are the best. The opening
action sequence, that keeps getting interrupted, is the best thing
I've seen since The Raid 2 (2014).
Hour of Vengeance action February 16 "The story focuses on an angry mob boss who is ripped off by
his own people, so in retaliation Mr. Scorello, gets even with those
who have wronged him the only way he knows best . . . by killing
them! Mr. Scorello calls in a professional hit man to clean house. A
violent bloodbath of revenge follows as "Max Stryker" delivers a
brand of justice that is best served hot.. with lead that is!
Prepare for an action adventure you won't soon forget." Synopsis by
Writer, Director, Star Bradley Creanzo(as Max Stryker)
Triple 9 crime thriller . . .
they are going to have to add: action February 26 "A gang of criminals and corrupt cops plan the murder of a
police officer in order to pull off their biggest heist yet across
town." The trailer is intense. A must see. Heat
from 1995 comes to mind . . .
London Has Fallen action crime thriller
March 4 "In London for the Prime Minister's funeral, Mike Banning discovers a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders."
Starring Gerard Butler, and Aaron Eckhart, this movie looks
like it upholds the Action Movie standard in the
subgenre: Protecting the President at all costs. With
Butler's 'merry quips', it should be spot on: "You should
have brought more men."
I love this movie already!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice action adventure
fantasy March 25 Sorry
fanboys, I'm going with Superman for the win, however, I am most
psyched to see AQUAMAN, my favorite. Trying to overlook the
casting and costume of Wonder Woman (disappointing)!
We've waited so long to see Batman versus Superman. That title is
enough, but when they add Dawn of Justice, it just makes me super
excited for the long-awaited Justice League movie. Aw yeah! DC

Hardcore Henry action crime drama
April 8 "A first-person action film from the eyes of Henry, who's
resurrected from death with no memory. He must discover his identity
and save his wife from a warlord with a plan to bio-engineer
soldiers." This first-person movie is the inevitable
full-length shot of the Biting
Elbows video "Bad
Motherfucker". The People's Choice at TIFF's Midnight
Madness, it should be everything we hope for.
Criminal action crime drama April 15 The memories & skills of a deceased CIA agent (Ryan
Reynolds) are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous
convict (Kevin Costner). This looks like old school Action
starring old school Actors. Just what I want! Costner at the top of
Captain America: Civil War action thriller
May 6 What an excellent series. This movie is everything you hope
it will be! Loved Black Panther but Spider-Man stole the show. I'm
very excited for the Black Panther movie and the "98%
African-American" cast! I wonder if Michael Jai White loved it too?
I still think he would have been awesome—not to take anything away
from Chadwick Boseman's performance, which was stellar!
The Nice Guys action comedy crime May 20 "A mismatched pair of private eyes investigate the apparent
suicide of a fading porn star in 1970s Los Angeles." Russell

Central Intelligence (NOT action?) comedy
crime June 17 "After he reunites with an old pal through Facebook, a

of Aces action adventure war

Bus Driver action August
15 "A high school bus on its
way to a retreat blows a tire and stops at the nearest ranch for

War Dogs comedy drama
19 "The true story of two young men, David Packouz and
Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon
to arm America's allies in Afghanistan." It's not labelled
"Action" but we can't miss this. It's like two
Joes get dropped into an Action Movie. And, it's rated "R".
Mechanic: Resurrection action crime thriller
26 "Arthur Bishop thought he had put his murderous past behind him
when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life. Now he is

such, the score will be the third and final Horner score to be
