The action movie is resilient. As superhero tentpoles, animated family comedies, and blockbuster spectacles continue to rule the box office, the action genre has found ways to thrive in different corners of moviedom, evolving in the realm of VOD, on streaming platforms, and in foreign countries. Fans still want to see teams of commandos fight bad guys, cops throw their badges across tables, and assassins go rouge. That's not going to change.
Like last year's list, the goal here is to celebrate the best action titles of 2020 on the big screen and on streaming platforms, which could mean superhero epics, foreign language slugfests, and, more likely than not, at least one movie starring Vin Diesel. We'll be updating this list as the year goes on, so strap in.
