2019 Action Movies

Apologies, this list is not complete. Working to close it out before 2020.


  • Glass  drama sci-fi mystery  January 18
    Not Action but . . . "Security guard, David Dunn, uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities."



  • Cold Pursuit  action drama thriller  February 8
    "A snowplow driver seeks revenge against the drug dealers he thinks killed his son. Based on the 2014 Norwegian film 'In Order of Disappearance'."


  • Alita Battle Angel  action adventure romance  February 14
    "An action-packed story of one young woman's journey to discover the truth of who she is, and her fight to change the world."
    The script seems impactful and important for women, but it's in contrast to her looks and the Director . . . #justsaying I have high hopes for it anyway. "I do not stand by in the presence of evil." "She is threatening the natural order of things . . . "
    "And I'm just an insignificant girl." "Yeah, that's what they want you think." "You made the biggest mistake of your life—underestimating who I am." The CGI action choreography looks great. Love it when they make use of gravity.



  • Captain Marvel  action adventure sci-fi  March 8
    "Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races." Writer/Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are helming Marvel's first solo female-led movie (Wonder Woman is DC). IMDb reveals that "The filmmakers cite 1990s action movies as an influence on the action, in keeping with the era in which the film is set." (Blockbuster part was hilarious. Loved every minute of it.)


  • Triple Threat  action thriller  March 22
    First and foremost! I mean, Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Tiger Chen, and Jeeja Yanin (and more) all in one film! No wonder the poster is just a list of names . . . The IMDb plot summary reads "A hit contract is taken out on a billionaire's daughter intent on bringing down a major crime syndicate. A down-and-out team of mercenaries must take on a group of professional assassins, and stop them before they kill their target."



  • Shazam! action adventure fantasy April 5
    "We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM! - this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam."


  • Hellboy action adventure fantasy April 12
    Why does he look weird? Because it's not Ron Perlman (it's CIA agent Gregg Beam from Quantum of Solace). This is a "complete reboot and not a continuation of the previous movies." IMDb also reveals "This film adapts the England-set Hellboy stories "The Wild Hunt" and "The Storm and the Fury", where Nimue becomes the Queen of Blood and Hellboy in his battle with her brings about the apocalypse."


  • Master Z: Ip Man Legacy action crime April 12
    While keeping a low profile after his defeat by Ip Man, Cheung Tin Chi gets into trouble after getting in a fight with a powerful foreigner." Directed by the best: Yueng Woo-Ping, it stars Michelle Yeoh, Tony Jaa, Dave Bautista, and Jin Zhang


  • Avengers: Endgame action adventure fantasy sci-fi April 26
    3 hours, 1 minute! "In the aftermath of Thanos wiping out half of all life in the universe, the remaining Avengers must do what's necessary to undo the Mad Titan's deed." It hit EVERY right note and it was super hard not to cry. #justsaying




  • Shadow  action drama war  May 3
    A quote from Director Yimou Zhang: "Because of the influence of Chinese martial arts films, Hollywood movies are changing. The action in the films is more beautiful, more rhythmic, and uses some enhanced special effects. I think it's a great thing."


  • India's Most Wanted  action drama thriller  May 24
    "A group of intelligence officers embark on a top secret mission to track down a wanted international criminal."


  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters  action adventure sci-fi  May 31
    "The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah."



  • The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil action crime drama June 7
    "Remake of the South Korean film 'The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil' about a crime boss who teams up with a cop to track down a serial killer." Another summation: "After barely surviving a violent attack by an elusive serial killer, crime boss Jang Dong-su (Don Lee) finds himself forming an unlikely partnership with local detective Jung Tae-seok (Kim Moo Yul) to catch the sadistic killer simply known as "K"."


  • Men in Black: International action adventure sci-fi June 14
