The action was brilliant, the story was intriguing, the performances top-notch and the visuals were a delight for eyes.

My Verdict: Iron Man 3 was an improved project than Iron Man and Iron Man 2. What I liked the most about Iron Man 3 was the dark element in the story – I mean, Mandarin’s twist and the chaos depicted with great execution. A better, bigger and improved superhero movie, indeed.

IMDb Rating: 7.5/10

Production Budget: $225 Million

US Box Office Collection: $291 Million

My Verdict: I must say I had a lot of expectations from Man of Steel. I was greatly looking forward to this movie the whole time because of Christopher Nolan’s involvement with the story and production. The movie didn’t impress as much as I had imagined because it had a great potential to becoming the biggest movie of the year as it gained immense popularity before and after the release. The word of mouth, however, wasn’t as favorable because there were some loose spots in the story which led the movie to a relatively mediocre success. A very nice action movie, nevertheless.

My Verdict: Talking of action, what’s better than a superhero with a hammer? Thor: The Dark World hammered the cinemas with a thundering entrance and made a lucrative debut. The reason the fans loved it so much was the heavy dose of action and an improved storyline. If you haven’t seen this, go for it now.

My Verdict: With every new Fast & Furious movie, Justin Lin is getting more viewers to the franchise. From an average action franchise to a money-making franchise, Justin Lin has made the F&F series grossly profitable. Fast & Furious 6 is better than all the other F&F movies. It has more action, more speed, more excitement and a better cast. A must watch!

IMDb Rating: 7.0/10

Production Budget: $120 Million

My Verdict: Oblivion is one of the finest Sci-Fi movies made in the recent years. With an intricate storyline, the movie offers more action as it progresses. Tom Cruise is back to his action-business with this movie, and he’s back with a bang. This movie belongs to Tom Cruise only. Don’t miss if you’re an action & Tom Cruise fan.

 

7. The Lone Ranger [2013]

My Verdict: Welly welly well, many of you might not agree with me when I say The Lone Ranger was one of the best action movies of 2013. I agree it had some not-so-great moments in the movie, but the action was amazing. The climax – the train scene – was just breathtaking. To me, this is one of the most unrated movies of this year. No two words on that.

 

8. Pacific Rim [2013]

My Verdict: Pacific Rim had enjoyed one of the widest pre-release hypes of the year, but it failed to capitalize on that. I reckon the visual effects could’ve been a lot better, other than that, the action was incredible. The cast didn’t have much to do in the movie, but the movie, overall, was a fine action movie.
