MoviesMatrixMadness | Gear Up for an Explosive Action Movies Draft

Action movies get our blood pumping, adrenaline spiking, and shadows boxing. (Please, like you’ve never done that after a martial arts movie, you big nerd?)

Recently, a gaggle of cinephiles and geckaphiles got together and held the first-ever action movies draft. Before we take to the polls, we wanted to give you a breakdown of it panned out.

We have 20 people, all with their tally sheets and scoreboards. Each person drafted six action movies, among the best cinema has ever offered us. Now, there may be some that were controversial.

Lots of guns, murder, suspense…but action? Not so much. This was drama. What about this?

Lots of guns, people died, a ton of suspense…but action? Well, hells yeah! See? Movies really is a talking sport. Over the past several months, we have tackled characters, genres, and other aspects of film. That’s why we dare to take on the Action Movies Draft.

Here are your Actions Movies Draft teams
