2010 have witnessed the launch of many great movies. Action is a genre that most people enjoy and there were impressive movie releases in 2010 so, here are some of the best action movies:
Christopher Nolan makes the best movies ever! After seeing the Dark Knight, i hadn’t expected any other movie to come close to what the Dark Knight had provided. But Christopher Nolan proved me wrong. He came up with inception, a brilliant movie which deserves compliments beyond imaginable levels.
The movie is smart, freakishly innovative and thrilling to the utmost level. With great visuals, directing, acting and an incredible story, Inception reaches the top of the charts as the best action movie in 2010.
2. The A Team
From the directors of Smokin Aces and Pride and Glory, Joe Carnahan makes this action packed thriller that is undoubtedly one of the best action movies of 2010. The cast of this movie is great with Niam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel.
The A Team is about a group of special agents who were framed and is on a mission to clear their names with the US military. The movie may be loud and disoriented, but it is a movie that contains brilliant tactics, adrenaline rushing action and put together by great acting from the cast.
3. Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time
It is not easy to reduce the length of a whole game into a 120 minute movie! But Mike Newell (who had directed Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire) and his crew had done a great job in putting together a great story within the time frame. This Prince of Persia movie is about the quest young prince and princess who were fugitives to stop the villain who threatens to destroy the world unknowingly for his own selfish gains.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a well action packed thriller with a great story. The journey they take is fun to watch as they make it a little bit funny. It doesn’t give justice to the game, but it does entertain and is easily one of the best video game adaption of all time.
4. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1
Alas something good from the Harry Potter franchise. We were worried that the Goblet of Fire would be the best in the movie series. But “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” has surpassed our fear and delivered a brilliant movie. This movie can be termed as the best movie in the Harry Potter franchise with the Goblet of Fire not being far behind.
Harry Potter is on a quest to find all the horcruxes and destroy them. Harry Potter also uncovers the existence of the three most powerful objects, the Deathly Hallows, which would get into the wrong hands.
5. Iron Man 2
The first Iron Man movie was critically praised with Robert Downey JR’s great performance, a great story along with action packed thrilling sequences. The Iron Man 2 was a worthy sequel. The sequel doesn’t disappoint and comes with strong performances from the lead characters.
Iron man 2 has a lot of villains like the Black Widow and Ivan Vanko, an inventor who duplicates tony Starks invention of Iron Man. But at the same time Iron Man gets a sidekick, War Machine played by Don Cheadle. Its fun to see them battle side by side to save the world.
