Since 2005:

Inception - One of the craziest, mind bending movies ever. Special effects are the best I've ever seen. Plenty of action on multiple levels. Real thinking man's movie.
























The Dark Knight - Pretty obvious pick. Best Batman movie ever created (IMO). Better action scenes than Batman Begins.


























IP Man (IP Man 2 is good, but not nearly as good as #1). Arguably the best martial arts movie made thus far. The fight scene of IP Man vs. the 10 Japanese blackbelts may be the best fight in cinema history.






















13 Assassins - Another martial arts movie that is fantastic. Action takes a long time to build up, but the final battle scene runs around 30 minutes, and is incredible. Lots of sword play.























Furious Five - Arguably one of the best chase scenes I know of. Certainly more mainstream than most movies, but it did a better job at being enjoyable than most.



























Children of Men - Haven't seen this one in full, but a great idea about surviving in a SHTF UK.



























Kick-Ass - Rather funny take on an action movie. Nicholas cage dies a bloody death, and that may be worth watching for it alone. Lots of good gun play.



























Taken - Saw this the week it came out. I had no idea that it would turn out to be arguably the best, solid action movie that has been PG-13..Right up there with The Dark Knight or Inception, but for totally different reasons.




























Crank 2: High Voltage - Easily the most insane action movie made. Totally non-stop 90 minutes of killing, sex, and language. Not the best, but a pretty crazy movie that is worth watching.























Hobo With A Shotgun - I really was looking forward to this one before it came out. Low-budget, grindhouse fare. Not the most fantastic movie, but it was very enjoyable with its over-the-top action. Can pick it up as a rental pretty cheaply. May be one of the few movies made recently that involves killing lots of children.





























300 - The quintessential man movie of the past 6 years. Take Lord of the Rings and inject an R rating with a lot more sex and murder - that is 300.































Live Free or Die Hard - great installment to the Die Hard quadrilogy, despite being made ~15 years after the last one




























Punisher: Warzone - saw this one on a whim. Very bloody, very violent. Very satisfying. One of the more obscure titles at theaters, but I loved it. Doesn't star Thomas Jane, the original punisher. This one is far more evil and true to character.


























Rambo - Stallone's return to his quintessential character. The movie kind of drags on, but the action scenes are incredible.




























The Expendables - Not as good of a movie as you'd hope with action's biggest stars. However, its enjoyable for what it is. Certainly looking forward to the 2nd installment.
































Star Trek - A surprising take on the series not known for its action. JJ Abrams injected a ton of action and did great with the movie. One of the better sci-fi movies of the past ~6 years.



































Book of Eli - Great post-apocalyptic movie with a decent bit of action. Gets kinda preachy to some, but is nevertheless great.


























Machete - Rather political and pro-immigrant, but the action is solid. Lots of nudity too if you like that sorta thing.





Most should be available via Netflix.

The "Unrated" Cut makes it a much more brutal film, and better, IMO.

Bah! How can you disrespect Dolph Lundgren like that!

(yes, I'll accept that his movie was so bad you've repressed it from your memory as an excuse.)


Great list, BTW!
Off the Netflix I go...
