2 Captain America: The Winter Soldier Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Why do so many people love this film, some people say it's the best movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me it would appear as my 2nd least favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe Movie, I really liked when I first watched it ( I usually do because I don't think when I first watch a movie) but considering it came out the same year Of Guardians Of The Galaxy, the film was stretched thin I would give it a 7/10, I still have high hopes for Civil War.

One of the best marvel movies (maybe even the best) that is loaded with top notch action. An exciting film all the way through. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

3 Marvel's The Avengers Marvel's The Avengers

I really found this just boring to watch. Was a huge disappointment.

Best action movie of 2012 after Batman

5 Star Wars: The Force Awakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens
6 Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol V 4 Comments
7 Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Mission impossible movies just get it right, first Ghost Protocol, now Rouge Nation. Wow these are great action movies.

8 The Dark Knight Rises The Dark Knight Rises

Once you get past the Batman voice, this movie is simply stunning. The visuals, the plot, the action, the music,... All top class. Almost all superhero movies are mindless fluff and flashing lights. The movie capped off a comic book trilogy that people will try to replicate for years to come, and most likely fail. Even Nolan himself couldn't do it with Man of Steel.

The Dark Knight Rises is such an amazing movie with awesome effects, fights and action.

An unsuitable end to an otherwise excellent trilogy, Tom Hardy's performance of Bane is one of the worst Movie Performance I have ever seen!

Whoa, Age of Ultron is amazing! I honestly think this is better than the first which I really love also. Great villain, characters, music, great everything and the action is epic.

It is number 1 better than its prequel
