The 40 Best Movies on Amazon Prime Video Right Now (May 2022)

Action Movies On Amazon Prime Video

Fargo

What a ride! Fargo is the kind of movie that will have you on the edge of your seat as soon as the opening credits roll, and keep you there until the end.

Its thriller rating is marvelous, directed by the Coen Brothers, starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, and Steve Buscemi.

The plot revolves around an insurance salesman who partners with two criminals in a plot to kidnap his wife for ransom money. This crime story with twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end.

All The Old Knives

All The Old Knives is a spy thriller that follows two ex-spies as they eat dinner together and reminisce about the old days.

Oliver (Chris Pine) is a CIA officer who has just retired, and Celia (Thandiwe Newton) is an ex-spy whom Oliver had once been in love with. At the beginning of the film, they haven't seen each other in five years.

Over dinner at a fancy restaurant, they reminisce about the old days, which quickly escalates into an interrogation—and you're never quite sure whose side you should be on. Is either of them telling the truth? Or are both of them retelling their past exploits to fit their narratives?

Director Janus Metz does an outstanding job of creating tension through cinematography alone: he uses extreme close-ups and claustrophobic angles to make you feel as if you're being watched by someone or something—you're always looking over your shoulder, never quite sure what's coming next.

The Lost City Of Z

The Lost City Of Z offers a cinematic experience that is unique, beautiful, and exceedingly rare in today's Hollywood. By Writer-Director James Gray, he has created an honest-to-God epic film with gorgeous visuals, an intriguing story, and a solid pace that never feels rushed or bogged down.

The Lost City Of Z tells the true story of British explorer Col. Percy Fawcett, who disappeared in 1925 while searching for a mysterious city that he believed to exist in the Amazon. It's a story that's been told before, but never with this level of authenticity and depth.

A terrific performance by Charlie Hunnam as Fawcett and Sienna Miller as his wife Nina, but the real surprise here is Robert Pattinson as Henry Costin, Fawcett's right-hand man. Pattinson captures Costin's offbeat personality perfectly and delivers some of the film's best comic relief.

This is one of the year's best films and should not be missed by adventure fans or anyone looking for a great story told well.

All The President's Men

It can be difficult to make a movie about real people and events, especially if the events are recent. If an audience doesn't know who the characters are or what they're talking about, it can be hard for them to follow a movie—and even harder for them to care.

The dialogue is fast-paced, witty and quick-witted, and the actors (Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford) are both charming and believable as the journalists of The Washington Post who uncovered the scandal that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation. The film got an admirable thriller rating.

The film is based on the 1974 book of the same name by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, two of the reporters who worked on uncovering Watergate.

It has received accolades from The Academy Awards, The Golden Globes, and The New York Film Critics Circle; it won four awards out of eight nominations at Cannes Film Festival; it currently holds a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it was selected by Time Magazine as one of "The All-TIME 100 Movies".

Die Hard

I've got one word for Die Hard: yippee-ki-yay!

It doesn't matter what genre you like, you'll love Die Hard. It's a classic that deserves to be remembered as a hero of the thriller genre and also got a great thriller rating. John McTiernan, who directed Predator and The Hunt for Red October, sets the stage for an action-packed journey into the heart and soul of everyman John McClane (played by Bruce Willis).

The movie starts slow, with McClane reuniting with his estranged wife (played by Bonnie Bedelia) at her office Christmas party in LA. But it quickly escalates into excitement when Alan Rickman's Hans Gruber character leads a team of hackers in hijacking the building and taking all of the employees' hostage. They have a plan, but they didn't expect John McClane to be there.

What follows is suspense, thrills, and a real understanding of what it means to be human, all packed into one hard-hitting film that will leave you fascinated and sometimes even laughing out loud.

She's tasked with convincing Lady Hideko to marry the Count, who plans to steal her inheritance and send her off to an asylum. But when Sook-Hee falls in love with Lady Hideko, she must choose between sharing in Count Fujiwara’s scheme or finding a way out for both of them.

The Handmaiden is directed by South Korean filmmaker Park Chan Wook, who has been acclaimed for his unique style and themes of violence and revenge. In this film, he uses his trademark vibrant colours to create stunning visuals that enhance the mood of each scene.

A strong cast includes Kim Min-hee as Lady Hideko and Ha Jung-woo as Count Fujiwara; Cho Jin-Woong is also excellent as Uncle Kouzuki, the owner of the estate where much of the film takes place.

The Mad Women's Ball

As the name suggests, this thrilling film is about a young woman who goes to a ball. What seems like an innocuous invitation—a note in the mail, date and time scribbled on it—turns out to be much more than that.

This is no ordinary ball, and this is no ordinary invitation. What she finds there will blow your mind. You may have heard of Mélanie Laurent as the director of such films as Now You See Me, Breathe, and The Nightingale.

In her latest movie, The Mad Women's Ball, she combines the best of all these genres into one epic experience that will make you want to run out to see it on opening night. Starring - Lou de Laâge, Mélanie Laurent, Emmanuelle Bercot. Among the best movies in the film industry.

The General

The General is a film that is not just a film, but an experience.

When watching this movie, it's easy to forget that you're watching anything at all—it feels more like you're there, standing alongside Buster Keaton as he manoeuvres his way from one dangerous situation to another.

The way he moves, the way he charms the audience with his smile and quick wit, the way he interacts with his surroundings—all of these elements immerse you in a world that is historically accurate and unspeakably exciting.

And then there are the stunts. From falling off moving trains to miraculously surviving explosions, this movie has everything a good action flick needs.

What makes it even more impressive is that it was made during a time when stunt doubles were unheard of—the actors in this film really did risk their lives for the sake of the story. The movie has been praised for its innovative stunts and special effects.

The General will keep you laughing and on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. It's an experience you won't want to miss!

It's a Wonderful life

Lionel Barrymore stars as the dastardly Mr Potter, who has it out for George Bailey, played by James Stewart. The film follows George through his life in his small hometown of Bedford Falls, with plenty of ups and downs along the way—including a near-miss with death.

When I first saw this movie, I was a little unsure of what to expect. But after realizing it was set at Christmas time, my heart jumped with excitement to see all those great scenes of snow and decorated houses!

And the characters didn't disappoint either—they all had such complex personalities, but they were all just trying to get by in their small town and make their families proud. And while it's a family drama, there are some adult themes involved.

Although the movie is not made for kids under 12. The overall this is one of the one-holiday classic movies on amazon prime you can watch during December no matter what year it is.

She survives the accident, but when she's taken to the hospital she is found to have had all of her bones shattered. Before she dies, she leaves a rambling message for her therapist Dr Josef Klemperer (Swinton) about how there's something wrong with the dance school and that everyone at it is "one of them."

With these words hanging in our minds like an ominous cloud, we are introduced to Susie Bannion, an 18-year-old girl from Ohio who has come to Berlin to join the esteemed Tanz Dance Academy.

Train To Busan

Train To Busan is a roller-coaster ride of action, adventure, and heart, with an ending that is sure to leave you in tears.

The movie starts with Seok-woo (played by Gong Yoo, also a real-life father) getting ready for his business trip to Busan. His daughter Soo-an (played by Kim Su-an) is not happy about it and pleads with him to spend the day with her instead.

He refuses, and sends her off on the train with his work colleague Sung-Kyung (played by Kim Eui-sung), as he's still busy at work.

When Seok-woo joins them aboard the train, they discover that a highly contagious virus has broken out and infected most of South Korea, turning those exposed into violent zombies.

Now they're trapped on this train careening towards Busan, while hordes of zombies fight their way aboard. The film is packed full of action scenes and emotional moments—all of which are enhanced by the truly incredible acting from all of the cast members.

There are touching moments between Seok-woo and Soo-an, as he works hard to protect her and make up for a lost time after neglecting her for so long.

Hellraiser

Barker's signature focus on the grotesque and fantastical is perfectly paired with Higgins' performance as Julia Cotton. The film also features a strong supporting cast that includes Andrew Robinson as Larry Cotton and Oliver Smith as Frank Cotton.

Hellraiser may be over 30 years old, but this British horror film remains one of the most compelling examples of the genre—and you don't even have to like horror to enjoy it!

Sci-Fi Movies On Amazon Prime Video

The Tomorrow War

It’s a non-stop thrill ride with a lot of action and drama. It is one of the best movie on Amazon Prime Video right now!

The Tomorrow War is an action-adventure Sci-Fi movie that was directed by Chris McKay. The movie is about a group of people who join a war against aliens in the future and time travel to the present day to recruit soldiers.

The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things

In the age of streaming services and endless content, The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things tries to build its own space in the world by using a progressively overused plot device. Starring Kathryn Newton, Kyle Allen, Jermaine Harris and directed by Ian Samuels.

We're introduced to Mark (Kyle Allen) who has been stuck in a time loop for an unknown amount of time. He is not trapped like Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day but is in a continuous loop of the same day repeating itself.

Mark is content with his situation, as he has found joy in his life from collecting tiny perfect moments and cataloguing them on his phone as he relives the same day over and over again.

His discoveries include things like perfectly cut sandwiches, perfectly poured coffee and perfectly timed high fives. His happy existence is disrupted when he meets Margaret (Kathryn Newton) who also seems to be stuck on the same day that Mark is living.

The two work together to solve why they are both experiencing the same day repeatedly and whether there is a way to escape their seemingly inescapable situation.

Vivarium

It begins in a way that's both sweet and sinister, like the first time you try cotton candy, which is both sweet and sinister. A young couple (Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg) are looking for their first home together, so they head to the suburbs, where they get lost.

When they stop at a real estate office to ask for directions, the realtor (Jonathan Aris) gives them a map, along with a warning: "Don't go where I told you."

They don't listen.They find themselves in a new development that's unlike anything they've seen before—the houses are all identical, as well as dead inside—and when they try to leave, they realize that they're trapped. They can't explain how it happened or why it happened; all they know is that there's no escaping this strange town of identical houses and the single child who lives there.

It's a mind-bending premise executed by director Lorcan Finnegan with an eye toward tension and terror. The film is unsettling on multiple levels, some of which are obvious (the encroaching threat of violence) and some of which are more subtle (the way that our subconscious desires can be hijacked by powerful forces beyond our control).

The Vast Of The Night

When a mysterious signal interrupts the radio broadcast of a 1950s high school basketball game, it quickly becomes clear that something is amiss in Cayuga, New Mexico. As the night wears on, the town's switchboard operator Fay Crocker and local radio DJ Everett Sloan begin to uncover the strange origins of the signal, which may have far-reaching consequences for their town—and the world.

A slow-burning sci-fi film with lots of heart, The Vast of Night is an exploration of what keeps us connected to one another—and how easily those connections can be threatened. It's a love letter to the golden age of radio and a reminder that it's often our small communities that get dragged into national and international crises.

At its heart, The Vast of Night is an exploration of community. In particular, it explores how easily we can lose sight of this connection—especially when we're distracted by something like sports or romance.

This is not a film for those who want their movies to tie up all loose ends and offer easy answers: it's about the questions we ask each other and the fear of what might happen if we don't get them answered soon enough.

Jamie's story is funny, adventurous, and heartwarming—but it also has something important to teach its audience about what it means to be brave. It's easy to do the right thing when it comes at no cost to yourself. But sometimes, being brave means putting everything on the line—and that can be scary.

It follows the story of Sky Masterson, a gambler who falls for Sarah Brown, a Salvation Army worker. Guys and Dolls is considered one of the best movies of all time—and once you've seen it, you'll know why.

It's hard to believe that this movie is almost 60 years old. The cinematography is impeccable and the sets are gorgeous. You'll feel like you're getting swept up into 1950s New York City from your very first viewing.

The music in Guys and Dolls is also something to behold. I mean, it earned an Oscar nomination for Best Music!

Zula and Wiktor fall in love in a music camp, but they are separated because they disagree with the politics of the time.

The music truly makes this movie special. Traditional folk music is played by actual folk musicians, and their passion for the music shines through their performances. The musicians themselves play characters in the film as well, giving it an authenticity that would be hard to find elsewhere.

The cinematography is also stunningly beautiful. The scenes set in Paris feel like walking through an old painting from a gallery, with their bluish-grey tones and romantic ambiance.

Dead Poets Society

This coming-of-age tale, which holds a 92% comedy rating star, Robin Williams, as an English teacher, is a must-watch for anyone who's ever felt like they didn't belong or that the world was just too much.

Peter Weir (The Truman Show, Picnic at Hanging Rock), who directed Dead Poets Society, does a fantastic job creating the perfect balance between comedy and drama.

The film perfectly captures the feeling of figuring out who you are for the first time, featuring Robert Sean Leonard (House) as Neil Perry and Ethan Hawke in one of his first roles as Todd Anderson.

The Big Sick

The Big Sick is a movie that will make you laugh, cry, and ponder the implications of a coma. That's why it's called Holly Hunter Genre. Michael Showalter stars Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan and Holly Hunter.

As you can imagine from that summary, The Big Sick is about more than just its title. It's more than just a romance, a comedy, or even a drama—it's all of those things plus Liz (Holly Hunter), who plays Emily Gordon's mother in the film.

I would say that this film is very much defined by Liz: she provides the most memorable lines, the most emotional moments, and the biggest laughs.

But don't think this movie is all dark—far from it. Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan have great chemistry as two deeply weird people who find their lives suddenly intertwined.

They're trying to navigate their relationship, their families, and some life-threatening health issues with equal parts grace and awkwardness—and watching them do it will leave you feeling like a better person for having seen it happen.

Rushmore

He gets himself into all sorts of trouble when he falls in love with a teacher, Miss Cross (Olivia Williams), and becomes friends with Herman Blume (Bill Murray), a disillusioned millionaire.

As the story progresses, Max has to decide what he wants out of life and how to achieve it—which is easier said than done. One thing that sets Rushmore apart is the cinematography: the camera work is fluid, and the shots are carefully composed and beautifully framed.

It's clear that director Wes Anderson has a strong vision for this film and has managed to execute it perfectly. If you're looking for a movie that will make you laugh, cry, and think about your life choices, this is THE ONE! Just make sure you bring tissues!

All hell breaks loose

As the brothers start to discover what the future holds in store for them—and the world—they encounter demons, beasts, ghosts, and more. In other words: all hell breaks loose.

It's a fun, action-packed ride that allows you to escape from reality and immerse yourself in another world for a little while. It also provides a unique glimpse into how people might react if real supernatural creatures were around us every day.

But don't worry—you'll be caught up in the story before you know it. This is a tale you don't want to miss.

Paterson

Jim Jarmusch's Paterson isn't exactly a story—it's more like a collection of moments in the life of an ordinary man. That man is Paterson, and the film follows him through the course of one week of his life.

Paterson lives in Paterson, New Jersey, and he drives a bus for a living. His wife Laura is quirky and energetic, and she has dozens of ideas for businesses she'd like to start—one day she wants to open a cupcake shop, the next day it's a boutique selling handmade leather purses. Starring Adam driver, Golshifteh Farahani, Nellie, and Rizwan Manji.

Paterson loves Laura, and he admires her creativity despite their differences. He loves his daily routine too, which includes writing poems during his lunch breaks and drinking beer at his local bar after work.

Paterson's biggest dream is to become a published poet, but it doesn't seem likely that that will ever happen. Still, he continues to write every day. He finds inspiration in everything that happens around him—every conversation with his coworkers or other bus riders, every person he sees on the street, every time Laura says something surprising or wonderful.

Manchester By The Sea

In Manchester By The Sea, the story of a janitor who gets drawn into caring for his nephew after his brother dies, director Kenneth Lonergan paints a richly complicated portrait of grief. 

The film's lead actor Casey Affleck gives an Oscar-worthy performance as Lee Chandler, a man who has been cut adrift from everything he knows and is struggling to find any meaning in his own life where he feels utterly alone.

The supporting cast, including costars Kyle Chandler and Michelle Williams, also do excellent work rounding out the picture of what it means to lose someone close to you. 

Manchester By The Sea is a movie that pulls no punches in its depiction of the depths of human despair—but it also shows us how even the most hopelessly broken people can still find some hope for happiness in the future. This is one for fans of serious dramas about relationships that are deeply flawed yet somehow still loving.
