If there was one movie genre that every single man could agree to enjoying, it's action flicks. C'mon, who doesn't enjoy a total badass hero saving the day from bad stuff happening to those in danger? Look no further than films like Taken and, of course, the Lethal Weapon series to remind you of that feeling.
There's just nothing quite like an action film. Sure, a sci-fi epic can blow your mind, and horror films can scare the crap out of you, but in terms of pure adrenaline, action is the way to go. Spaceships in battle can’t compete with a well-edited fight sequence, and the thrill of watching someone—male or female—kicking ass, or even having their respective asses kicked before turning the tables on their opponents.
Twenty-seventeen still has a long way to go, and between now and the end of the year there are still 11 big action films on the horizon.

This one we’re admittedly a little more concerned about given the fact that Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice were so damn bleak and humorless. But that being said, trailers so far definitely indicate that a lighter tone is being taken, and Snyder’s films always look great. So we shall see. Taking place months after the last film and in the aftermath of Superman sacrificing himself to save the world, Batman is recruiting meta-humans to combat a growing threat. These include Flash (Miller), Aquaman (Momoa), and Cyborg (Stevens). Of course, Wonder Woman (Gadot) is already there and at some point Supes is supposed to be returning from the grave, hopefully not looking as constipated as he has in the last two films (Cavill’s great, but, man, do they have the character looking like he’s in pain every time he rescues someone).
