Well, if you love action movies with a similar vibe to John Wick, here are 13 movies to watch! Go grab some popcorn now.
1. Bullet Train (2022)
One person said, “I enjoyed Bullet Train, a bit less serious than John Wick, but some pretty enjoyable action.”
Asecond person replied, “Bullet Train is like John Wick, Kill Bill, and Snatch had a baby.”
A third Redditor added, “I loved Bullet Train much more than I thought I would!”
2. The Raid: Redemption (2011)
“The Raid: Redemption is probably the best fit,” one person stated.
“1000% this. The Raid 1 and 2 and The Night Comes for Us are great! 3 of my all-time favorites,” somebody replied.
“Raid movies are some of the best action films of all time. Really glad Hollywood hasn’t tried to do a remake,” added another commenter.
3. The Night Comes For Us (2018)
Another Iko Wais film is recommended in our list.
One user said, “The Night Comes for Us. Not a perfect fit, but a real face melter of an action flick.”
Another one replied, “The Night Comes for Us is criminally underrated. Well, under-watched is probably more accurate. Most people that see it love it long as you're not the queasy type. The movie has horror movie levels of gore. Lol.”
4. The Man From Nowhere (2010)
Somebody stated, “The Man from Nowhere. Great Korean movie.”
Another one replied, “This was John Wick before John Wick.”
A third added, “This is also my recommendation for OP.”
5. Shoot ‘Em Up (2007)
“Much campier, but Shoot ‘’Em Up,” said one person.
“Paul Giamatti is so good in that,” replied another.
“He hams it up even by Giamatti standards. So good,” added another.
6. Extraction 1 and 2 (2020 and 2023)
“I don't remember 1 as well, but the gunwork in 2 was very similar to John Wick in parts. Vibe is very different, though,” one person stated.
“100% this. The gunplay action in both owed a lot to John Wick. Well worth a watch—#2 in particular is relentlessly high energy action,” the second person replied in agreement.
7. A Better Tomorrow (1986)
One Reddit user commented, “If you’re in for the gun play, I’d highly recommend John Woo’s work in the 80s and 90s. A Better Tomorrow I and II, The Killer, and Hard Boiled.”
Another commenter replied, “I was going to recommend John Woo's 80's/90s films too, Hard Boiled in particular is one of my favorite action films. I just watched the trailer to remind myself of how good it is, it's a pretty decent demonstration of the action scenes.”
8. Hotel Artemis (2018)
“I really enjoyed Hotel Artemis,” one Redditor said.
“Ah, so you're the other guy who watched that! I personally really enjoyed Hotel Artemis, but on the whole, audiences hated it even more than critics did. I think it was good fun, though,” replied the second person.
“I really liked it. We are three!” a third commenter added in agreement.
9. Polar (2019)
One person stated, “One that hasn’t been said, but I thought was pretty similar is many ways Polar!”
A second person replied, “Scrolled too far down to find this! Mads Mikkelsen was great in it!”
10. The Equalizer Series (2021)
“The Equalizer series,” somebody suggested.
“Surprised this is this far down. The Equalizer is to John Wick as Armageddon is to Deep Impact. Antz and A Bug's Life. White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen,” replied another.
11. Upgrade (2018)
“I think Upgrade would scratch this itch. And by extension, The Invisible Man (2020),” commented one person.
“Upgrade is amazing!” replied another.
“Both of those movies are directed by the same dude and they are both awesome,” a third added in agreement.
12. Equilibrium (2002)
Someone suggested the sci-fi/action film with Christian Bale, “Equilibrium.”
Another one replied, “Second Equilibrium if the style of gun action appealed.”
A third commenter added, “Equilibrium had a pretty unique story, and the action sequences were top-notch.”
13. Atomic Blonde (2017)
Atomic Blonde is an action thriller film directed by David Leitch. Set in 1989 Berlin during the fall of the Berlin Wall, the film stars Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to retrieve a list of double agents.
One person said, “Atomic Blonde is pretty good. Charlize even trained with Keanu while he was making Wick.”
