Hidden gems on Netflix all action fans need to see
Much like the horror genre, action cinema demands a slightly different critical analysis than other categories of film. An airtight plot and compelling thematic undertones aren't nearly as important as good editing and innovative fight choreography. Hammy acting will get a pass (and maybe even be encouraged) if the actor has impressive martial arts technique. And breaking new narrative ground isn't nearly as important as doing something simple well, even if that something simple has been done a dozen times before. There's a whole slew of worthwhile action films on Netflix that remain underappreciated to this day. If you've got a subscription and prefer roundhouse kicks to Oscar-worthy performances, you'll have a blast with these.
