Incredible Action Movies To Watch After A John Wick Marathon
Miami Vice
Like the premise of “John Wick,” taking an otherwise goofy story seriously was something Michael Mann epitomized in his 2006 action film, "Miami Vice."
Memorable for its beautiful cinematography, there's texture to the action sequences, and the violence has real consequences as the characters don't simply shrug off their wounds.
Dirty Harry
Clint Eastwood starred in five films as the untraditional San Francisco police inspector Harry Callahan, but the first one, "Dirty Harry," is still the best.
This engaging revenge story with meticulous gunplay has suspenseful, realistic assassinations and the occasional one-liner from Callahan in a way "John Wick" fans will appreciate.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will track kidnappers across the globe in order to get his daughter back in this corny '80s action-mayhem film that has no illusions about what it is.
Although it's a violent film, the love that Schwarzenegger's character, John Matrix, has for his young daughter Jenny (Alyssa Milano) is heartfelt.
Car chase movies are popular, but "Drive" created a patient, heartbreaking tragedy centered on a career criminal trying to break free of the violent world he's entrenched in.
The unnamed central driver (Ryan Gosling) is the same near-silent, brooding type as Wick. Early tender moments combined with unexpected bursts of realistic violence are shocking.
Wick fans love that he’s a hero with class. Well, no one is classier than 007, and the James Bond franchise has remained a blockbuster action saga for over 50 years.
Sean Connery in "Goldfinger" established the hallmarks of the modern action movie, including Bond's gadgets, exotic locations, self-aware humor, and an exciting opening sequence.
