55 action movies of 2022

There’s probably no genre more beloved than action. But not all action movies must be big and loud, many of them are low-budget flicks everyone loves to watch every other day and a few even become franchises.

The action genre is a perfect way to escape the insane world out there and become a hero ready to punch, draw swords, and run toward the danger. And even if a golden age of ass-kicking cinema gone and everything about superheroes now, a true moviegoer will always enjoy jaw-dropping fight choreography, fearless stunts and hand-to-hand confrontation between between hero and villain.

At Budomate Magazine we put our heads together and collected action movies from United States, United Kingdom, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and even France and Sweden that have been released this year and may have slipped under your radar. Sure you will find a movie deserve adding to your collection of beloved actioners.
