The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises is easily one of the best action movies of 2012. Although not as good as its predecessor, The Dark Knight, it is still a stellar ending to a fantastic super hero comic book adaptation. With Gotham descending into anarchy thanks to Bane (Tom Hardy) and Batman (Christian Bale) gone into a depression so deep he is no longer donning his costume, this movie gives way for many fight scenes even before Bruce Wayne is convinced to start Batman up again. Then, Bane proves to be the ultimate physical enemy of Batman, ending up breaking his back. By far, The Dark Knight Rises is certainly one of the best action movies not only of 2012, but of this era.

A long time ago, the dragon Smaug stole all the treasure of a city of dwarves. Now, the wizard Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen) and a group of these dwarves have chosen the hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) to help them recover their lost treasure. But that's not all this movie is about. A particular Orc general has it in for the king of this group of dwarves, and that leads to action scene after action scene. Plus a few other adventures on the side.

The Avengers is the biggest crossover movie ever made. Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Nick Fury, Black Widow, the Hulk, and Hawkeye all rally together to fight against Thor's brother, Loki when he tries to invade Earth. Each character has his/her own background in a previous movie or two, leaving room to get right into the action. They all retain their own personalities while working together to save the world. It has drama, emotions, and action all in one. It has certainly earned a spot on the list of best action movies of 2012.

Based on a book, Safe is about a not-so-good cage-fighter who gets into it with the Russian Mafia. While wandering the streets and contemplating suicide, he meets a 10-year-old Chinese girl who is a genius at math. She is involved with another mafia that is using her gift to help their extortion racquets. The cage fighter, Luke Wright (who is played by Jason Statham), decides to jump in and save the girl from the mafia. Full of fighting left and right, and even a car chase, Safe was definitely one of the best action movies of 2012.

Wrath of the Titans is an action-filled movie all about the Greek Gods. Zeus (Liam Neeson) is kidnapped by Ares (Edgar Ramirez) and brought into the underworld. Perseus (Sam Worthington) decides to go down there and save him. Naturally, that won't happen so easily. It is jam-packed with Perseus kicking butt. It's full of excitement and has excellent pacing, keeping the fight scenes long enough without dragging on.

This movie is a thrilling action movie starring Gina Carano. When Carano's character is double-crossed by a trusted colleague, she decides to get back at him. This is both possible but impossible, as they both work as American spies in the international department. Although it features many cliches of a spy film, it is still entertaining enough to be on the list of one of the best action movies of 2012.

Skyfall is the latest installment of the Bond movies. Full of realistic violence, it also makes you think about things while watching. For example, should Bond stay with M when her past comes up to screw up the present? That's not the only plot point, though. M16 is attacked, and Bond is assigned to erase the attacker(s). There's also a scene with a Komodo Dragon! Who can beat that!?

The Raid: Redemption is pretty much all action, non-stop. It starts with some gunfights, but those are quickly moved aside by hand-to-hand, martial-arts combat. The plot? Little more than a SWAT team sent to arrest a mobster only to get trapped in his apartment building with killers on the loose. That's really the best kind of action film, right?

The Amazing Spider-Man is a remake of Spiderman that was completely unneeded. But boy did it make up for that little detail. When a desperate scientist tests a prototype on himself, he becomes a mutant bent on turning everyone in the city into mutants just like him. This movie tends to drag a little, but once you get to the action scenes, you'll realize it was totally worth watching through it all. As far as superhero movies go, this movie certainly comes out pretty high up on the totem pole.
