Just like the previous year, 2012 witnessed some of the best action movies ever released as technology advances, action movies are getting more and more impressive.
The year 2012 continued from where 2011 ended as per action movies; it was a year full of more and more great action movies.
We were entertained with breath-cutting action movies that heavily relied on 3D technologies and we all seemed to love every minute of the cinematic movies.
Here is the list of the top 7 best action movies released in 2012.
1#1). The Dark Knight Rises
This movie represents the last part of Batman’s Trilogy and is believed to be the biggest hit in comparison to the previous ones. It has been eight years since Batman, in collusion with Commissioner Gordon, vanished into the night.
Assuming responsibility for the death of Harvey Dent, Batman sacrificed everything for what he and Gordon hoped would be the greater good.
However, the arrival of a cunning cat burglar and a merciless terrorist named Bane forces Batman out of exile and into a battle he may not be able to win. Once again Bruce Wayne has to save his Metropolis.
2#2). The Expendables 2
After the success of The Expendables in their last assignments, Mr. Church reunites the group for what should be an easy paycheck. However, when one of The Expendables is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
This time Sylvester Stallone focused only on acting, living to direct, and producing to others. Big names to remember here are Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the other members of The Expendables.
3#3). The Amazing Spiderman
The Amazing Spiderman is a brand new take of the popular spiderman story but with a new title. This brand new movie of the character Spiderman incorporates numerous changes.
The title “The Amazing Spiderman” was the name of the original TV series from the 1970s. In this new movie, we return to revisit the past of our superheroes where old secrets are going to resurface.
One of Spiderman’s oldest enemies, the lizard is this time featured in the film. This can be seen as a breath of fresh air to Spiderman’s Fans.
4#4). Men In Black 3
This is the continuation of Men In Black 2. This movie has been expected for a long while before it finally came out.
The previous sequel was not that much well received and the team involved in the production decided to take a long break during which they could rethink the whole story.
This time we are offered to travel back in time with Will Smith to uncover the Agency’s biggest secret. He doesn’t know he is in for the surprise of his life. You don’t want to miss this movie.
5#5). The Avengers
The Avengers was a highly successful movie reaching the 1 billion mark just 15 days after it was released. This is a huge achievement in comparison to Iron Man, Thor and Captain America.
In normal circumstances, this team of superheroes will not have been created but it just happens that the earth is facing a big threat from an alien force and the only way to defeat the enemy is for the superheroes to come together.
So for the sake of the survival of the earth, they decided to overcome their differences and face the situation together.
6#6). The Bourne Legacy
The Bourne Legacy represents the continuation of the Bourne series. So just like in the previous movies, we are dealing with a special spy who has turned into a danger to the organization that created him.
Interestingly, this time around we are not dealing with Jason Bourne anymore. The production team has decided to start over with a fresh plot and new characters and that still comes as a breath of fresh air to fans of this hit series.
The story is as intriguing as usual and it is coupled with some mind-blowing action sequences. But whether this movie is as great as the previous Bourne series is left for you to decide.
In Battleship, the vibe of the 80s is brought back but in a different fashion this time around.
Back in time Battleship was one of the most popular board games that eventually was redesigned into a video game.
In the movie, the earth is invaded by aliens because the navy has accidentally activated one of their ships.
They used real ships in the movie and made it look much more real. The picture quality is obviously really impressive.
