The Best Action Movies of 2017 So Far

List by john Last updated June 22, 2017

Every year viewers are presented with flurry of great action movies from around the world. 2016 has been one of the best years to date and features some of my favourite action films of all time. Since we are only in June there many that are yet to be release and as a result this "so far" list will continue to evolve with great new titles.

"Action" films cover a huge diversity of plots which in my opinion is what makes them while at the same time featuring guaranteed, gun fights, car chases, explosions, you name it. So here is my list of the best action movies to hit our screens in 2017.

John Wick Chapter 2 was one of the most anticipated action movies of the year and it certainly delivered. If you have not seen the first one I suggest that you do so before checking this one out because there is a good story behind all the carnage and explosions.
