Netflix’s new action thriller Trigger Warning that debuted on the service last Friday (June 21) has a rather poor 20% Rotten Tomatoes score, so it’s no Hit Man. But that hasn’t stopped the new Netflix movie becoming number one on the best streaming service’s weekly top ten list, with a whopping 25.7 million views worldwide.

Trigger Warning stars Jessica Alba as Parker, a Special Forces commando who takes ownership of her father’s bar after his death and finds herself at loggerheads with the violent gang running rampant in her hometown. While Trigger Point probably wouldn’t end up on our best Netflix movies list, here are three action movies with over 90% Rotten Tomatoes that definitely would.

RRR is a mind-blowing epic brimming with phenomenal action sequences, jaw-dropping musical numbers and an abundance of wild animals that will have you mesmerized for the entire three-hour run time. Set in the 1920s, the Indian-telugu language movie follows the unlikely friendship between two Indian freedom fighters, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (N.T. Rama Rao Jr.), who join forces to fight against the British Raj. 

The Tollywood blockbuster became a cultural phenomenon after its theatrical release in 2022 and became the third-highest grossing Indian film of all time. When it landed on Netflix, it remained in the streamer’s top 10 most-watched movies list for 14 weeks and was viewed over 45 million times globally. With tiger fights, gunfights and fist fights, RRR is a truly unmissable spectacle that’s well and truly earned a place on our best movies of 2022 list.
