The Amazon Prime Video service has brought back classic action flicks such as Braveheart, Die Hard, and The Terminator. This is welcome news, as they were absent for a significant portion of the year 2021. The return of these titles will go a long way towards improving Prime Video’s offerings in this area. As a result, rather than depending just on low-budget direct-to-video films, Amazon can now brag that it has a collection of classic films to complement its Prime Video originals.

This month, Amazon Prime Video will be releasing the epic, five-time Academy Award-winning historical action/drama. Features Mel Gibson in the title role of legendary Scottish hero William Wallace, who, following the murder of his new bride at the hands of the English, sparks a rebellion against the English.
This Peter Jackson-produced sci-fi action film made a big sensation at the box office, thanks in part to a viral marketing strategy that emphasized the film’s found-footage structure in order to generate a sense of “what-if” reality in the audience. And it was successful. District 9 was a critical and commercial triumph (it was nominated for four Academy Awards) that captivated audiences with its astounding visual effects and socially-poignant plot about an alternate Johannesburg, South Africa, where a colony of aliens comes on their gigantic hovering ship, homeless, starving, and seeking asylum from the authorities.
The aliens, belittlingly referred to as “Prawns,” are segregated into a camp known as District 9 where their fate is controlled by a global corporation, who are preparing to relocate the colony away from the metropolis. Sharlto Copley plays Wikis van de Merwe, the man on the ground in command of the mission. But when Wikis is exposed to an unknown extraterrestrial chemical that changes him permanently, everything he believes he knows about the aliens, the company, and his own life is called into question.
Die Hard (1988)
If it isn’t everyone’s favorite Christmas movie, then it isn’t everyone’s favorite movie. Die Hard, on the other hand, has the advantage of being usable all year round. Like John McClane, a New York City police detective who is estranged from his wife, Holly Gennero-McClane, Bruce Willis became an icon for his portrayal of the character (Bonnie Bedelia). A visit from John to his wife in Los Angeles coincides with the seizure of control of the Nakatomi Tower by terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), who capture Holly and her coworkers. John is thrust into the role of hero, despite the fact that he has no support or even a pair of shoes to fall back on.
The Rock (1996)
Is there a film that embodies Michael Bay’s style better than The Rock? This, in our opinion, is the ultimate distillation of everything Bay. Brigadier General Francis X. ‘Frank’ Hummel (Ed Harris) and his renegade Marines capture control of Alcatraz Island, off the coast of San Francisco, and threaten to release toxic gas if their ransom demands are not satisfied.
Attempts are made to save captives from Alcatraz by the FBI, who seeks the assistance of John Patrick Mason, the only person to have successfully escaped the prison (Sean Connery). Dr. Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage), an FBI Special Agent, joins John on this suicide mission, which also includes a group of Navy Seals. The Seals are killed, and only John and Stanley are left to finish the task, which they do with great difficulty.
Lindy Lewis, played by Kate Beckinsale, has a bit of trouble keeping her intermittent explosive disorder under control in the movie Jolt. To put it succinctly, she is prone to outbursts of tremendous aggression that can occur at any moment. Lindy goes on a date with Justin in an attempt to retain some semblance of normalcy in her life (Jai Courtney). Then Lindy discovers that Justin has been murdered and that the police will not intervene to solve the crime. As a result, she decides to administer justice on her own, one beating at a time, until she obtains some answers.
Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse (2021)
Without Remorse, a novel by Tom Clancy was ultimately turned into a film starring Michael B. Jordan as John Kelly, the head of an elite team of United States Navy SEALs, after nearly three decades in development hell, according to Tom Clancy. Following a mission that accidentally places them against Russian spies, John and his team are subjected to lethal retaliation on American territory many months later. A terrorist strike that also takes the life of John Kelly’s wife, Pam Kelly, leaves him as the sole survivor (Lauren London). In exchange for helping arrest Victor Rykov, the only remaining assassin, John bargains his way out of prison and into the hands of the FBI (Brett Gelman).
The Terminator (1984)
When you think about it, it feels like there have been a half-dozen Terminator movies, you are not mistaken. Although The Terminator is still the best film, it is much better than T2. There is a very good explanation for this. It’s because Arnold Schwarzenegger, in his role as the relentless T-800, makes for a very believable antagonist. Skynet’s wicked artificial intelligence has sent him back in time to assassinate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) before she can give birth to John, who will be the man responsible for leading humanity to triumph against the machines. In order to save his mother and himself, John has also sent Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) back in time to the year 1984. However, when the T-800 attacks, not even a soldier from the future can prevent him from taking over the world.
