Best Action Movies on Netflix 2022

The Gray Man

  • Genre: Action, Mystery & Thriller
  • Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas

The Gray Man has a fairly familiar plot, revolving around a mysterious agent with the alias of Six (Ryan Gosling), known as the CIA’s most rebellious man, operating in a secret program. During a mission, Six discovers that the commander Carmichael (Regé-Jean Page) seems to be cheating on him and is ready to make him the next target of elimination to cover up a scary secret. Six, along with his partner Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) flee everywhere and must confront the sick assassin Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans).

Although still not getting rid of the old-fashioned spy movie trail with a predictable plot, The Gray Man still has plus points such as attractive melee and action sequences at a fast pace. The film is also creative when using first-person perspective scenes, making the chase and confrontation between Six and the villains more dramatic and spectacular. 

Another plus point is composer Henry Jackman’s works with mysterious, deadly but equally tragic soundtracks.

The Man From Toronto

  • Genre: Action, Comedy
  • Director: Patrick Hughes
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, Jasmine Mathew

The Man From Toronto is no doubt one of the most popular action movies on Netflix 2022.

Starring Kevin Hart and Woody Harrleson, The Man From Toronto delivers funny and crazy story.

What happens when the world’s deadliest assassin, known as ‘the man from Toronto’ (Woody Harrelson) and Teddy (Kevin Hart), a salesman, get confused with each other? The famous assassin’s journey with the crazy and talkative guy starts here.

Day Shift

  • Genre: Action, Horror, Comedy
  • Director: J.J. Perry
  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco, Natasha Liu Bordizzo

In Day Shift, Jamie Foxx plays Bud Jablonski – a vampire hunter disguised as a pool cleaner in Los Angeles. Every day, he earns a living by hunting down bloodthirsty species and getting fangs to sell on the black market.

Meanwhile, Dave Franco plays Seth – an employee from the Vampire Hunter Association who does not have much experience. Fate pushed him to become Bud’s assistant. But instead of helping, Seth became a hindrance to his partner, even wanting to find out Bud’s mistake to report to his superiors.

Despite a huge investment budget, of approximately $100 million, the film is still underestimated because of its poor script and many plot holes, giving the feeling of a B-class action movie. Not to mention in many scenes, CGI effects are also poorly edited, looking unreal, further reducing the quality of the film.

However, for those who just want something to kill time, without too much emphasis on the content or the meaning of the story, Day Shift is still a not-too-bad option.


  • Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
  • Director: Matthew Reilly 
  • Cast: Elsa Pataky, Luke Bracey, Aaron Glenane

Interceptor is not groundbreaking but still enough to satisfy action movie addicts.

The film follows a tough and reality-bruised Captain JJ Collins (Elsa Pataky), who finds herself in charge of a lone nuclear missile interceptor base in the middle of the Pacific Ocean after she is wrongfully drummed out of her dream job at the Pentagon. When a simultaneous coordinated attack then threatens the base itself, Collins comes face-to-face with the charismatic yet crooked Alexander Kessel (Luke Bracey), a former US military intelligence officer intent on carrying out an unthinkable plan. With only minutes on the clock, Collins must utilize her years of tactical training and military expertise to determine who she can trust and stop Kessel and his covert mercenaries from completing their twisted and terrible mission.

Red Notice

  • Genre: Action, Comedy
  • Original Language: English
  • Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot

One of the most notable action movies coming out in 2022 on Netflix is Red Notice. Indeed, the film giant always knows how to attract top actors to join its projects, which in Red Notice are Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot.

Set in 2021, John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) – an FBI antiquities adviser – is invited by international police to Italy to stop the stealing of Cleopatra’s three eggs displayed in a Rome museum. There, he sees the artifact being swapped by Booth (Ryan Reynolds). Hartley gives chase of the thief but fails.

Later, Hartley and Interpol ambush Booth’s hideout in Bali, capturing the thief and the treasure. However, The Bishop (Gal Gadot) – another notorious antique thief – disguises herself as a police officer and steals the eggs. Interpol blames Hartley and Booth for losing the item, escorting them to a prison in Russia. Here, the two cooperate, plan to escape from prison, and capture The Bishop, reclaiming the artifact.

Despite criticisms about its quality, Red Notice still received huge views and became the most-watched movie on Netflix. Red Notice has proven that no matter how low-quality a movie is, it will still make money if we choose the right “representative faces” and the right PR strategy.

Lost Bullet 2

  • Genre: Mystery & Thriller, Action
  • Director: Guillaume Pierret
  • Cast: Alban Lenoir, Stéfi Celma, Sébastien Lalanne

So far, we have reviewed many hot movies but having average quality. So what is a very good action movie on Netflix 2022? No further than Lost Bullet 2.

The story is just like any other revenge movie that focuses on catching the bad guys and making them pay for what they did. However, what makes this movie quite immersing is its incredible direction. It simply hooks the viewers right from the beginning.

Director of both parts of the Lost Bullet, Guillaume Pierret has done an incredible job of keeping the momentum going and creating a thrilling experience for the viewers. The way Pierret has directed the film, it is bound to be loved by action and car-chase fans.

For the most part, the film has highly exhilarating and exciting races between Lino and the other parties. These races and car fights are shot so brilliantly that they add to the viewer’s experience of it.
