The 5 Best Adventure Movies Ever

The 5 Best Adventure Movies Ever !!

These are just a few of the best adventure movies in the last 60 years, but each has a cool, distinctive approach to action within plot that makes it entertaining in its own right. Some of these are classics; some may surprise you. Some of them may be outside your wheelhouse entirely. But they’re all entertaining.

‘Black Panther: One of the best movies ‘

Largely considered one of the best Marvel films, if not the best—it got the first-ever Best Picture Oscar nom for a superhero movie—Black Panther also has a top-notch action story. T’Challa becomes King of Wakanda after his father’s death and swiftly realizes just how messy ruling can be. With a worthy foe eyeing the throne (Michael B. Jordan) and the best supporting cast around (Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker, just to name a few), it’s an acting and action masterpiece.

‘Riders of Justice’

Mads Mikkelsen’s character is a military man who lost his wife in an “accident” that may, in fact, be murder. His quest for vengeance is ignited, and he’s unstoppable. Mikkelsen has always chosen interesting, counterintuitive projects, but this one is a perfect match for him. It makes use of a lot of the “running around and fighting” skills he honed as a villain in Dr. Strange but adds a ton of emotional heft. Yes, it’s a foreign language film, but don’t let that deter you. It’s heart-pounding in the best way.

‘Inside Man’

Spike Lee takes on the heist movie, and the results are outstanding. There’s smart commentary about race, justice, and class, as is typical of Lee films, but it’s paired with a story that doesn’t let up. We already know the WHOdunnit from the very beginning, but the why and how (as Clive Owens explains to us with a smile) are for us to find out. If you’ve never watched, I promise you won’t guess the end ahead of time.

‘The Old Guard’

Charlize Theron is Andy, the head of a bunch of immortal warriors who try to preserve their anonymity while enacting justice from the shadows. A new member joins their team, and it upends the fragile balance they’ve worked so hard to preserve. There’s a lot of ass-kicking here, naturally (the movie’s based on a killer comic series), but it’s also a smart look at what would actually happen to a person who lives for hundreds and hundreds of years. The film was so good that there’s a sequel in the works.

‘Inception: Nolan’s best thriller movies’

A lot of Christopher Nolan movies could go on this list, since they lean heavily on adventure combined with twisty, complex plot devices. The film that maybe does this the best is Inception, which hinges on thieves (led by Leonardo DiCaprio) sneaking into someone’s mind during sleep, planting an idea, and sneaking out without getting caught. It’s even more complicated than that, but somehow it works. Plus, that ending.
