John Wick (2014)

Summit Entertainment

When one of the best action movies of the last 10 years is streaming for free, you’re doing yourself a disservice by not watching it. We’re referring to John Wick, the action film starring Keanu Reeves as the titular hitman. John Wick (Reeves) left the criminal underworld to live a peaceful life with his wife, Helen (Bridget Moynahan). When Helen tragically dies, she sends John a puppy to help him grieve. One night, the son of a Russian crime boss (Alfie Allen) breaks into John’s home, steals his car, and kills the puppy.

To say that was a huge mistake would be an understatement. Hell-bent on revenge, John puts on his snazzy black suit, grabs a gun, and sets off on a path of vengeance. Directed by Chad Stahelski, John Wick reinvigorated Reeves’ career, returning the talented actor to A-list status. Because of its dazzling stunt work, the John Wick franchise has become the gold standard for action sequences.

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

Lionsgate

Hacksaw Ridge is a story so unfathomable that you have to believe it. No one could conjure up a story this inspiring from their imagination. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield) joins the United States Army as a combat medic. Desmond is a conscientious objector, meaning he refuses to pick up a gun. In basic training, Desmond is shunned by his fellow soldiers.

However, Desmond never caves, earning the respect of his group over time. It all comes to a head during the Battle of Okinawa. With the Americans pinned down, Desmond puts his life on the line to save others. This selflessness is at the heart of Hacksaw Ridge, a gripping war thriller about one man’s faith and heroism.

Geostorm (2017)

A group of scared people run for their lives.
Warner Bros.

Disaster movies are great forms of escapism. There’s something about watching a group of people save the world that makes for a good blockbuster. Geostorm, the 2017 film by Dean Devlin, was initially destroyed by critics. Upon further examination, Geostorm isn’t that bad, and that’s a credit to one man: Gerard Butler, whose commitment to making 1990s-style action movies should be applauded.

To combat climate change, a team of scientists led by Jake Lawson (Butler) created “Dutch Boy,” an intricate series of climate-controlling satellites that can manipulate the weather to prevent natural disasters. A few years later, Dutch Boy begins to malfunction. After an initial investigation, Jake learns a group of terrorists planted a virus in Dutch Boy to create a geostorm that could wipe out most of mankind. While Jake tries to stop the virus in space, his brothe,r Max (Jim Sturgess), searches for the person behind the virus. Time is ticking, and the world’s fate rests in the brothers’ hands.
