Action Movie Hidden Gems On Netflix You Need To Watch At Least Once | Netflix

There's nothing like a good action flick to get your heart pumping. Whether you're a fan of traditional action fare or you prefer to sprinkle your action cinema with elements of fantasy, horror, or even comedy, there's a little something for everyone just waiting to be added to your queue. Here's a look at some of the hidden action gems you won't want to miss.

There's no such thing as a miracle cure, and our protagonist in the sci-fi/action thriller Self/Less finds that out the hard way. The 2015 film features Sir Ben Kingsley as Damian Hale, a billionaire who is diagnosed with terminal cancer but is offered a whole new lease on life when he learns of the so-called "shedding" treatment. This secret medical operation transfers his mind into a newer, healthier body, so when Damian wakes up, he finds himself with an all-new physique, with Ryan Reynolds now portraying the revitalized Damian Hale.

The trouble is, this perfect body was not created in a laboratory, as Damian previously believed, but instead belonged to a man whose memories begin to resurface when Damian fails to take his prescribed medications. Damian learns that his body once belonged to a man named Mark, who has a loving wife and child who are very much still alive. Damian must then race against the clock to find out the truth of this novel "shedding" procedure before Mark's mind either takes over, or fades from his body altogether. Get ready for some serious existential thrills when you queue up Self/Less.

    Polar is great if you pick if you think that both John Wick and RED lacked unnecessary sex scenes, over the top characters, had too many action scenes and a plot that made sense.

    Hello, it would mean the world if you responded to this comment. I am looking to make a SLthrow reviewing different movies and tv shows. My question is, how do you get permission to play trailers from Netflix? Do you need permission? Or do you just have to add their logo in each trailer? Thank you for whatever advice you give. Wish you all the best.

    title should be ''Hidden Gems only US is allowed to watch'' most of those are not in my region (Denmark). and those few that we do have here, we have already seen. out of the 19 movies on this list, we can only see 6 of them. and to see that US netflix only cost $9 compared to the almost $16 in Denmark, i feel kinda cheated.

Luckily for me, i already watched SELFLESS in the theaters.

Scrolled through the comments t see what other shows are recommended without sitting through the 17min long video of SPOILERS

    Free State of Jones is a must watch. The ambiance reminds me a little about Red Dead Redemption 2 (though the movie is set in 1860's-70's and Rdr2 is in 1899). Polar was good, there's some really cool action scenes, and Mads Mikkelsen is always a win.
