Best Action Movies of 2022, Ranked – MovieWeb

With plenty of great contenders, here are the best action movies of 2022.
It's easy to not think about it, but Covid-19 really changed the way movies are made and produced, as well as how audiences watch them. WKRN states that in 2021 theaters took a massive hit and studios began to change the way their films were being made, so it was curious to see how 2022 was going to land with all the new movies being produced and showcased within the year. It turns out, that 2022 was a great year for movies, especially since theaters were completely opened and people were encouraged to watch these huge films on the big screen, rather than at home. There were so many movies released this year of all different genres, but action movies really came out on top this time around. Here's a list of the best action movies of 2022, ranked.
Viola Davis and John Boyega wow in this film based on true events in Africa throughout the 17th through 19th century. It centers around The Kingdom of Dahomey and the Agojie, an all-female group that were warriors and protected the state. The Woman King is a historical film filled with wonderful acting and dramatic moments, confirming that their story was meant to be shared with the world, and showcasing all they did to protect each other and Western Africa.

RRR shouldn't be looked over on a list like this simply because of how much action it has packed into it. With a budget of more than 70 million, it became the most expensive Indian film ever, and the outcome is worth the amount of money spent on it. If you're a fan of movies with tiger fights, outrageous stunts with motorcycles, situations where main characters shouldn't be able to survive, and history being told in a dramatized way, this movie is for you.
IGN states that Amber Midthunder's performance as Naru, the teenage girl who has something to prove to her close-minded family, is spine-ripping. Prey is essentially a prequel to the iconic Predator that was released in the '80s, taking it back to the start of the alien villain. Naru takes it upon herself to go after the Predator, wanting to prove to her family that she's more than just a crop-harvesting woman, and that she can be a warrior alongside the men.
Who doesn't love a movie about the corruption of the CIA? It's a face-off between Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, who dons a very intense mustache, as his character tries to track down his former colleague. The Gray Man is based on a 2009 novel of the same name, and was directed by the Russo Brothers, who are most notably remembered for their work in the MCU. This film is jam-packed with action, guns, and a duo we weren't aware we needed.
Mark Wahlberg and Tom Holland successfully took on the roles of Victor Sullivan and Nathan Drake, two characters, who for a long time, were animated in the PlayStation game of the same name as the film. The action movie was extremely successful, pulling in over 400 million, proving that when movies based off video games are done right, it can lead to a gold mine. Holland and Wahlberg worked well together, and had decent chemistry throughout the movie; their stunts were eye-catching and enjoyable to watch.
What's better than an action-packed movie that's based in the confined setting of a fast-moving train? Not much. Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, and viewers are quick to learn that weird alias names are common in a movie like this, especially with the several famous people that make up the cast. Ladybug is a mercenary who has to bring a very important briefcase and experiences a myriad of assassins who want what he has. Bad Bunny, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Logan Lerman, and Brian Tyree Henry are just a few big names who appear in this flick.

Besides Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Matt Reeves' The Batman was one of the most anticipated superhero movies of 2022. Fans of the Batman story were eager to see how Pattinson was going to compare to his predecessors, especially Christian Bale. He proved that he could hang with the big dogs, and The Batman was for many, the first movie they saw after Covid shut the theaters down, thus creating that much more hype for the action film. Paul Dano's Riddler should be praised, as well as Zoë Kravitz's Catwoman.
Michelle Yeow shines brightly in this action-filled movie, that was one of the most talked about of 2022. The movie is separated into three parts, and Everything Everywhere All At Once's pace is impeccable. It's filled with a great cast, and Jamie Lee Curtis is a great supporting actress to this comedy-drama-action film. Yeow has to travel through multi-universes in order to prevent a powerful being from destroying the multiverse.
The most anticipated movie of the year, as well as one of the most anticipated sequels. After the late, great Chadwick Boseman passed away, fans of the franchise were worried about where the direction of the sequel was going to be taken. However, filmmaker Ryan Coogler handled it beautifully and worked the story in a way that remembered both T'Challa and Boseman's influence. The anti-hero Namor was a great addition; his views were not as far-fetched as the usual Marvel villains, and several characters were well-rounded and received the closure they needed.
Another anticipated follow-up, and so far the most successful movie of 2022, Top Gun: Maverick was a great addition to the original movie. It earned more than one billion in sales, proving that Tom Cruise is just as great now, as he was more than 35 years ago in the first film. Maverick did everything right, by adding an entire new crew of flight members, such as Rooster (Miles Teller) and Hangman (Glenn Powell). It's fresh, fast-paced, nostalgic, and the best action movie of the year.
Book fanatic, movie lover and can remember any side character even if they had fifteen seconds of screentime.
