Best Action Movies of 2014

This list compiles the best action movies released in 2014.

The Top TenXW

1Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Only 6 of these movies are even out so far. I'd love to know how you saw these already. Oh wait, you didn't

Chris Evans owns this role now and it was an action-packed spy thriller with great characters, acting and direction. Pace was excellent!

I love it it was a wonderful movie I would like to meet nick fury

Hey remember the part in the elevator? That. Was. Awesome.

Before voting captain America number one on this list you gotta watch GODZILLA just once It is there are the parts where you would be bored and there are the parts where your jaws will hit the ground it is the greatest since the original GODZILLA and it craps all over that 1998 American version - Edwardsierra234

This "Godzilla Movie wasn't as action packed as some in the past has been. A monster movie needs the monster (s) in action fights... this movies was lite on this expectation. Even my wife commented on it.

Come on GODZILLA should be #1 on the list you got to at least watch GODZILLA at least once GODZILLA will just stomp on Captain America GODZILLA stomped on Captain America for biggest opening day

No! This movie hardly had any action in it. we only saw Godzilla at the end. There was more action in Shrek than in this boring movie!

3Guardians of the Galaxy

My favorite Marvel movie. My favorote superheroe movie. Gotg s action packed (incredibly awesome and intense fantasy futuristic battles) hilarious ( I was gutter busted laughing) and surprising dramatic scenes. I love. Love. Love Goth. Its definitely the best action movie of 2014. One of the best movies of 2014 and the best summer movie easily.

6The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1

The thought that this is below Guardians of The Galaxy saddens me. This movie has so much action and will leave your heart pounding

722 Jump Street

8The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Favorite. Great acting good story good effects. Need anything else

9The Transformers 4: Age of Extinction

Awesome NO CHANCE to be any thing but the best of the best on the list!

This is terrible, why is it in the top 10?

Lockdown, Optimus, Grimlock and Drift is so cool! This movie should be 1. Don't forget, 27 June 14, Let's face our Extinction! - badir

10Edge of Tomorrow

I don't think that this is the best action film of 2014, I just hate the fact that this is one spot lower than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That is why I voted for this.

Number 11? Why? Question mark again? The people who voted the top 10 please' watch this movie and you will know! Live Die ANd REPEAT to watch!

The Contenders

11The Expendables 3
12Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It should be a #1 movie because it's funny and has a lot of action

I haven't seen this but it's supposed to be epic

15The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
16The Maze Runner

I THINK The Maze Runner IS NOT Interesting

17The Raid 2

If I could vote for this and John Wick, I would. But this is hands down the best action movie of the year.

Winter soldiers action is based on the prequel of this movie

The king of all action films NEEDS to be at the number 1 spot, the raid 2 has more insane action, extreme gore, and hardcore thrills than anything else out there, the raid 2 is the best action movie out there, along with the raid: redemption of course :), and they're also the goriest movies out there as well
