If you think the action movie genre is only alive and well in blockbuster form, think again!

The real action revolution is in the indie realm, where young directors with bright ideas are still experimenting with the genre's canon in 2023.

Here's our list of the most original and underrated action movies of 2023:

As you can probably guess from this list, big budgets are not essential for an action movie to become good. Marketing costs may help a movie reach the mainstream and make a lot of money at the box office, but it's not something that's necessary for a movie to be loved by fans and critics.

After all, most of the movies on this list were completely unknown to the general public, but that didn't stop us from spotlighting them.

From gorgeous cinematography and intricately choreographed fight scenes to great acting and mind-blowing practical stunts, these movies have everything to make you feel like a kid again!

These 10 action movies don't suffer from the problems that big Hollywood blockbusters do - they're not straightforward and don't rely on pre-existing formulas, preferring instead to break new ground.

You may not know about these movies now, but you never knew about John Wick either, right?

Here are all the films mentioned: Plane, AKA, The Wrath of Becky, Gran Turismo, Guy Ritchie 's The Covenant, The Killer, Kill Boksoon, Kill, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, SISU.
