OMG! I can't find any good movies action movies to stream

When I signed up for netflix I had it in my mind "Oh yeah I'm going to watch a lot of great movies" but can't find any. All the movies I streamed I couldn't get through 20 minutes of it, I had no idea movies were this horrible. I am just looking for something I can watch, my favorite movies are "The Matrix, The Bourne Ultimatum, X-men 2 united, Spiderman". I just want to watch movies I can sit through even if its not 5 stars. The grudge 2 was a great movie, "The Dark night" was also a good movie "Iron man" wasn't(In my opinion) a 5 star movie but I could sit through it "The taking of pelham 123" wasn't a 5 star movie but its something I could watch. I just want to see movies I could sit through. HELP ME........ PLEASE!

"District B-13" is one of the best action movies I have ever seen. No wires, no stuntmen, no CG. All the stunts are real, and they are incredible.

If you don't mind French subtitles it's worth every last second.
Cool! Will be watching it soon, based on this review. Thanks!

Action and Adventure: 492 streaming titles available

Red Harvest is right about the action in District B13 -- the first place I saw parkour used in a movie.
I agree on District B13 and suggest you watch Foreign movies - I think they do great action movies. Here's the sort for
Netflix IW Foreign Action

But you can't depend on just the Netflix browse function because often they don't assign genres to foreign movies. I'd suggest you find a site with lists of foreign action movies. Netflix removed all the lists their customers created but there are other places like Amazon and IMDB that have some. Not as good as what NF thew out though.

These are some of my favorites from the above sort.

Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior

Ong Bak 2: The Beginning
Raging Phoenix
The Bodyguard
Kagemusha
La Femme Nikita
First thing we have to do is petition the networks and studios to release all those movies you love to watch to online streaming services. Which will be a slow and arduous process as hollywood is run by a bunch of crotchity old men who do not understand reality.

Think back when it was illegal for networks to show a womans navel on broadcast TV, it only took like 50 or 60 years for us to get full frontal "female" nudity, and thats because cable networks have slightly different rule sets.

So I would not hold my breath for a breakthrough anytime soon.

Oh and yeah I third (or is that fourth?) the recomendation for District B13 and also for using instantwatcher.com to search for movies you might like.

5th or is that sixth? on the instantwatcher.com and have yet to Watch D-B13, but it's on my top 10 to watch list....
And I appreciate the reminder. I have meant to watch it for a while, and just keep bumping it down below other stuff. Now I'll prioritize it better.

Thanks!
Here's a quick action/parkour scene near the beginning of B13 to give you an idea of the awesomeness of this film.
Runaway Train

this was better than the remake of taking of pelham which is the one offered on iw..if you sat thru that crap you'll definitely like this
I saw the movie District B13 you guys recommended. Good movie! Its such a shame that I was suckered into netflix. They advertise pure lies. 95% of the movies I want to watch instantly are not available. Most of the shit(Because that's what these movies are) available are unbearable to watch. Finding a good movie on netflix to watch instantly is like going through airport security without being scanned/searched. Truth is nobody wants to see bad movies and that is what netflix really offers. I just wish they were honest in their advertising campaign to just say "The movies we offer to stream are C-class movies".

The last good movie I saw on netflix was IP man. Anyone have any other recommendations?
If you liked B-13, take Aces' and borka's advice and watch Ong-Bak and Runaway Train.

They are not C-class.
A few more:


Black Hawk Down


Bangkok Dangerous

Give 'em Hell Malone

Crank 2

Zombieland

Chocolate (provided you like martial arts)

Ip Man (some sweet fight scenes, but you may have to wait a bit in between bouts)

To Live and Die in L.A. (if you like cop films)

"It is not, although it has an scene where a guy untie a button of her blouse, the movie I am talking about is not in black and white and it is not that old I think. It is like a comedy of black humor. Thank you."
