If you go to movie theaters only when your action idols are playing or when you have been long waiting for a movie filled with kick-ass and fists flying scenes, then action is a confirmed genre that you like. There’s nothing wrong with it; after all, most action movies are easy on the eyes as well as easy to understand. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out who is the bad guy and who’s going to win in the end.
There are some interesting options for 2015 that you may want to consider. Again, these flicks are packed with cool special effects, gun blasts, and fighting scenes that will make your one-hour and a half moment worthy and pass by oh so quickly!
Avengers: Age of Ultron
It is still written by Joss Wheedon and most of the main casts are still involved, like Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Evans (Capt. America), or Chris Hemsworth (Thor) – well, you know the characters more than I do. If the new Avengers is a good as the previous one, you can really expect a cool action packed flick that you may want to watch again and again. Just like the common action movie formula, the protagonist(s) have to deal with the antagonist in order to save the world. There will be a new addition of characters like Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver, with Ultron as the new villain. As usual, there is always internal conflict, followed by the possibility that Tony Stark is somehow responsible for the existence of this new antagonist.
Since the beginning of the release of the original Fast and Furious, this action movie is definitely included in the action genre – with added plus benefits of cool and beautiful rides. The story changed, following the demise of Paul Walker, one of the main stars. This will be the last performance of Walker, and also possible the end of the continuous series. In Furious 7, the story is about revenge. If you followed the story, you know that Luke Evan’s character, Owen Shaw, died in Furious 6, leading to Shaw’s brother, Ian (played by Jason Statham) going on a revenge spree that resulted in the death of Han. Because of the extent of the danger, Dominic Toretto insists that Brian O’Conner should remain at home, with his wife and kid. As you can guess, Walker’s appearance won’t be many, focusing on Vin Diesel’s character to deal with the new threat.
Star Wars Episode VII
It is quite difficult to determine whether Star Wars are included within action or sci-fi, but considering that the series are also filled with action-packed movements, it is quite understandable if it is included in this category. Everyone thought that Star Wars saga was finally over with the production of Revenge of the Sith, but when Disney came along and bought Lucasfilm, it seems that the action movie is on production… again! Rumor has it that the original title is Episode VII: The Force Awakens. For the hard-core fan, this is a certainly a good news, but for not-so-keen-fans, the title can be quite confusing.
It is an alien action packed starred by Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. It is about Jupiter Jones, a Russian immigrant girl who found out that she has unique genetic signature that signifies her role as the next Queen of Universe…literally, the Universe – with the whole Bing Bang thing. If you want to see the 3D version, it should be released around July the 25th.
With Johnny Depp as the main star – accompanied by Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn, and Ewan McGregor, this action-comedy flick sounds promising, right? Depp stars as Charlie Mortdecai, an art dealer, who is willing to traveling around the world to track, stolen painting with code for lost bank account with Nazi’s treasure gold.
The new Mad Max: Tom Hardy will star Fury Road in wasteland setting. Hopefully, the new Mad Max will be as good as the classic one, or the studio will be wasting too hefty cost for making one.
Bruce Willis is the main star in this action-futuristic flick about Vice. It is where customers play their fantasies and dream with artificial inhabitants. These artificial inhabitants will look exactly like a human. Of course, problems arise as artificial creature and human interact.
Fantastic Four 2015
If you are expecting the new Fantastic Four to be as similar as the previous one, be prepared to be disappointed. In this flick, the F4 members will be the younger versions of the previous ones. it is a reboot version with different stars and is likely based on the story from the comic books.
Are you a hardcore Terminator fan? If you do, you may want to include this Terminator into your must-watch list. Although the stories have developed and many villains have been destroyed in the process, this action movie is proven pretty hard to terminate. Somehow, the name ‘terminator’ has a special feel about it. The producers are basically playing a betting game; if it is able to embrace and please the hard-core fans, it will be another successful franchise. But if it fails, you can imagine the financial loss. In case you are interested, this movie is not a sequel or reboot – kind of making you think what kind of surprise elements in the store for the plot, eh? And in case you are interested, it is also possible that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be playing again as the T-800, although it will be an aging robot. If you want to watch this Genisys, it should be released around July the 1st.
This is basically a superhero-kind-of-movie where the main character, Scott Lang (starred Paul Rudd), has to embrace his super skill. The Ant Man is a hero that can shrink in dimension and scale, and yet has increased power and ability. Hmmm, is there any scientific explanation to it? Well, if you are referring to the ants, they are basically strong creatures that can handle heavy weights. Back to the movie, Lang has a mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, and they are working together drawing schemes and plans to save the world – sort of. Nevertheless, if you are interested in watching this, it should be available soon enough; probably released as summer movie.
