You’ll have much more fun with these ones!

While Kevin Hart’s action is taking Prime Video ’s global top by storm, now dominating in it, the movie is in fact not as good as this hype implies. Die Hart 2: Die Harter is panned for being extremely generic and even a pale copy of all genre’s staples.

Thus, there is a need to satisfy people’s interest in good old action comedy flicks, with 5 of them being enlisted here. They are all must-watches for a good evening chill.

1. Tropic Thunder (2008)

This star-studded hilarious roller coaster of a movie seems to be the main inspiration for Die Hart, but it’s done much better. Ben Stiller’s brilliant film focuses on a group of actors during their attempt to make a Vietnam War film that turns into a failure.

2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

If you enjoyed Kevin Hart’s performance in Die Hart, you should definitely see a better movie starring him. This installment of the Jumanji franchise follows a group of teens who find themselves trapped inside the jungle of a video game as a set of adult avatars.

3. Red (2010)

We all have heard about this all-star comedy, but if you still haven’t seen it, it’s high time. The talents of Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren shine bright while depicting the story of a group of ex-agents on their final mission.

4. Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)

Colin Firth and Taron Egerton ’s spy flick is truly a masterpiece that set the bar high for humor in action movies. It centers on a young agent, who teams up with a secret organization’s veteran, and offers lots of remarkable jokes and stylish action.

5. This Is the End (2013)

Last comes another star-studded film that takes its comedy to another level. The story of a group of actors who end up in the wake of a global apocalypse in Los Angeles is a must-watch due to its brilliant cast who play fictionalized versions of themselves.
