If you loved Jumanji: Welcome to Jungle, then you will absolutely love its sequel as well.

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are at their comedic best and this action adventure movie on Amazon Prime will not disappoint you one bit. It is one of those few action movies that can be watched with the whole family as it's not super gory.
Wonder Woman was the first big superhero movie with a female lead in Hollywood. There were reservations that the movie might not work at the box office. Instead, it shattered all records, and for good reason too! Wonder Woman is by far one of the best superhero movies out there, as it is filled with amazing stunts, VFX and most importantly, a great storyline. Above all, Gal Gadot exceeded expectations in this movie, which has now made her a household name.
The Hurt Locker was nominated in 9 categories at the 2010 Oscars, where it won 6 awards, including the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and more. For an action movie that’s based on a simple plotline of a sergeant training his subordinates, the fact that it won so many accolades should give you a fair idea of how good it is. Jeremy Renner does a fantastic job in the role of a reckless Sergeant and the gut-wrenching action sequences filled with slow pauses in between add to the drama. One of the best Hollywood action movies of all time, this is a must-watch for people who love war movies.
War is one of the best Hindi action movies on Prime Video, and it stars action superstars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The movie is based on the journey of an Indian soldier (Shroff) who must eliminate an ex-soldier (Roshan) who has gone rogue. What makes the plotline interesting is the fact that the latter was the former’s mentor in the early days. The movie is filled with some slick action scenes with both the hunks battling each other.
When Mad Max: Fury Road was announced, not much was expected from it, as this 80s franchise had once tried and failed to woo audiences. However, the 2015 flick, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in lead roles, surprised everyone out there with its mind-boggling action sequences and a world that grows on you with each passing shot. To be very honest, it has made its place in history books as one of the best Hollywood action movies of all time. The monster trucks, ready-to-die soldiers, bombs dropping and electronic music in the background coming out of flaming guitars – it is absolute madness. You will definitely love the movie if you are a fan of the action genre.
Well, one cannot make an Amazon prime action movies list without including Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible. This 2011 film, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, took the stakes to another level, which naturally leads to the action sequences being top notch. Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team are running against time to prove IMF’s innocence in the bombings at Kremlin, and they are ready to put their lives at risk in this highly important case. In this movie, Cruise performs a death-defying stunt on top of the Burj Khalifa, and this is definitely one of the highlights.
The first thing that comes to the mind when we think of Furious 7 is Paul Walker’s death and the song ‘See you again’. Walker’s death in the middle of the production of the seventh instalment of the Fast & Furious franchise shattered fans and the filmmakers chose to give him a proper send-off in this movie. Apart from that, it is one of the most entertaining movies of the franchise, with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez and others doing what they do best on screen – kicking a$$.
Here’s another war movie on the list! 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi takes you up close and personal with several elite CIA operatives defending the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi. It is an out and out action movie with several war scenes sprinkled across the movie with a mega finish at the end. One of the highlights of the movie is that even though it is a war movie, it is entertaining and keeps you invested in the plot throughout the length of the movie. This is all thanks to the director Michael Bay. It is definitely one of the top action films on Amazon Prime.
One of the highest-grossing movies of 2018, K.G.F: Chapter 1 just exploded into the film Industry with the movie releasing in three languages, Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.

Rocky (played by Yash) reaches Mumbai in search of power and money but gets entangled with the Gold Mafia, where he emerges as the local hero.
The Italian Job is one of the top bank heist movies, and it is mainly because of the intelligent plotline and exhilarating stunts. Mini Coopers rule the roads and the action is so fast-paced that you may miss an interesting scene or two if you blink. Add to this the stellar star cast of Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron and others, and you have yourself a complete package.
