Action movies are usually associated with dumb entertainment, but that would sell this popular genre short. Anyone who has ever seen an action movie knows that to have real impact, you need to have a real story as well. Sure, some movies are merely about the explosions, car chases and violence, but the action films that stay with you are the ones that get your adrenaline pumping, AND get you emotionally rooting for the protagonist. Because when it feels there is nothing at stake, there is nothing to get excited about. We have listed some powerhouses that are exciting as hell, and satisfying on multiple levels.

The Accountant (14-10-2016, 128 minutes)
Ben Affleck stars as an autistic math prodigy working for criminal organizations. Afraid his 'services' will come to light, he decides to on a 'legit' customer this time, but soon he becomes entangled in a web of corruption, violence and death. A smart and entertaining action thriller with Affleck in his finest role since 'Gone Girl'.
A high-speed chase movie with fantasy and sci-fi elements that is both entertaining and exhilarating. 'Hold onto your seat' is an understatement. George Miller has done it again - the Mad Max franchise is now stronger than ever.
