BH Box Office: 5 High-Octane Action Flicks You Should Be Watching Tonight

Welcome to Boss Hunting’s weekly Box Office series where every Sunday night, we’ll be dishing out our favourite movie picks from various genres to watch while settling in with a cheeky order of Uber Eats.

This week marks curtains on the debut season of Box Office, and we’re going out with a bang courtesy of these five epic action flicks. Sometimes all you want is a classic shoot-em-up, and from badass Cold War spy films to epic real-life stunts in Mission: Impossible, these films will deliver on every front.

After a big day consuming our bodyweight in Christmas ham, Boxing Day is all about stressing less and taking the easy option from Camy’s Charcoal Chicken. The American burger hit the spot for Jack, and John managed to cop a two-for-one deal on the Camy’s special – crispy chicken schnitzel, cheese, mayor and chilli.

Atomic Blonde

Lorraine Broughton, who works as a spy for MI6, is sent on a mission to Berlin just before the collapse of the wall, to get hold of a stolen list which has the names of exceptional secret agents. Is this Charlize Theron’s most badass role? Atomic Blonde is a well paced, easy to watch action film that meets somewhere in the middle of John Wick-style set pieces with a hint of stylised Guy Ritchie violence.


An all-time medium budget action classic that effectively type casted Liam Neeson as an always vengeful veteran who has to call on his shady past and expert set of skills to save the day. When the man’s teenage daughter is abducted by human traffickers while on a trip to Paris, and with almost no information on her whereabouts, he must do all he can to find and save her before she’s lost in the murky underground world of modern slavery.


One of the best war films in recent memory? This cinematic masterpiece by Sam Mendez is an ambitious one-shot style film that follows two rookie soldiers who are assigned the task of delivering a critical message to another battalion. If they fail to deliver their orders, the battalion will undoubtedly walk into a deadly ambush. 1917 is best watched on the biggest screen you can find and with the sound-bar turned up to 11.

The Raid

A special police unit get trapped inside a high-rise apartment block in the slums of Jakarta while attempting to arrest a big time drug lord. With depleting ammunition, a bounty on their heads, and adversaries on every level, they need to do everything it takes to make it out alive. A classic all-action flick from Gareth Evans, the creator of the much-hyped Gangs of London.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout

If you’re a fan of big, bold, and unapologetically Tom Cruise blockbuster action sequences, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is for you. Cruise returns for his sixth outing as IMF agent Ethan Hunt to track down a group of terrorists who plan to detonate three plutonium cores for a simultaneous nuclear attack on different cities. A stickler for real-life stunts, Cruise pulls out all the stops for this mammoth action film that doesn’t take its foot off the gas from start to finish.
