We have been enjoying the netflix.ca service since September 2010. Although the movies are not always the newest releases, there is always something interesting to watch. Read my review of Netflix Canada here.
These are my picks for the top 10 action/adventure movies currently available on Netflix Canada.
- Iron Man 2 – Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Scarlet Johansson star in this second installment of the Iron Man super-hero movies. One of the few huge blockbuster movies available on Netflix Canada.
- Blade – Wesley Snipes is a day walker, a vampire who can go out in the daylight. He kills other vampires. Based on a comic book, lots of butt-kicking good action here!
- Underworld – vampires vs werewolves starring Kate Beckinsale. Dark and exciting, plus a love story.
- Charlie’s Angels – cute action flick with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu. Not much plot, just fun-loving action.
- The Quick and the Dead – One of the best westerns ever made, starring Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sharon Stone, and Gene Hackman. Break out the Kleenex!
- We Own the Night – Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg star as brothers, one involved with the mob and one who is a police officer.
- Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon – classic martial arts adventure, with ground-breaking choreographed fight scenes.
- U-571 – War movie set in 1942, about submariners on a mission to steal a German encoding device. Stars Matthew McConaughey, Jon Bon Jovi, Bill Paxton.
- Rob Roy – historical swashbuckling drama starring Liam Neeson, Jessica Lange and Tim Roth.
- Backdraft – best firefighting movie ever made. Exciting, tear-jerking movie stars Kurt Russell and William Baldwin among others.
