Watching a movie is one of the top 3 forms of entertainment that keeps everyone in the world happy. Fiction, film tricks and incredible real-life stories being played in front of your screen is one of the best feelings ever. Today, I am telling you about the 15 best action movies you must watch that teach us how to drive like a boss.
Too many film tricks but still fun to watch
Oh, yes! These are car-related action movies but sadly, there is no Nollywood movie with their common cars on this list.
I was surprised when I found out that not everybody loves action movies. How can you not love the best action movies? I guess that is what makes us different as humans in this life but if you love cars or want to see cars in action then this article is for you.
Top 15 best actions movies in Nigeria and how they teach us how to get behind the wheel
1. 6 Underground
6 Underground is definitely the best action movies in Netflix I have personally watched. I have repeated it about 7 times because of the opening scene. In this movie, Ryan Reynolds is a billionaire inventor that everyone thinks is dead. He works from the shadows in punishing corrupt world leaders with his team of 6 people that also pretended like they are dead.
The 6 major characters were dead from the beginning
The Nigerian flag looking bright green Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio from the opening scene of this movie was involved in a car chase scene and this made the movie go on to become one of the best action movies on Netflix for the year 2020.
Alfa Romeos are very scarce in Nigeria
Watch this movie to find out how you can play dead if you want to do something from behind the shadows of this world. Also, the driving skills will teach you one of two things about precision driving.
2. John Wick
John Wick is a Keanu Reeves sequel that has the most unbelievable storyline. John Wick goes out to revenge the killers of his dog. Yes, just a dog but if you know what that dog meant to him then you will understand better. John Wick is one of the best of action movies ever made but what makes it so good is the dog story.
The man and his dog
However, John Wick had this common car from action movies; a classic Mustang that was involved in some action at some point in the sequel, the classic Mustang was the reason John Wick went after some bad guys. This will show you how people can develop a very strong affection for their cars.
The classic Mustang that started a lot of fights
Definitely one of the best action movies of all time as it is in a sequel. We are expecting part 4 in 2021.
3. Hobbs and Shaw
Hobbs and Shaw is a spin-off of the popular Fast and Furious series. This spin-off has Jason Statham and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson starting out as enemies but coming together to defeat the real villain Idris Elba and the cars never get you bored at any point in time.
I think film tricks make some movies go on to become one of the best action movies in Hollywood. You will see cars on another level of performance from this movie.
I like to think that the ‘film trick’ of today would go on to become an innovation tomorrow. That has happened many times.
4. Fast and Furious
The Fast and Furious sequel is one of the best action movies of all time and there is nothing much to say about it if you haven’t watched all 8 parts. I have personally watched each part about 10 times.
Make sure you watch all 8 parts of the movie
This movie made me love cars through the eyes of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker (may his perfect soul rest in peace).
If you want to discover new cars and what can be done to cars to make them drive better/look better, then Fast and Furious should be your go-to movie for that. Using cars to do amazing and impossible things is the bedrock of Fast and Furious.
5. Mission Impossible
Mission Impossible is an action movie sequel by Tom Cruise which is one of the best action movies all time. Actually very old but keeps getting better with each new part.
If you don't know Tom Cruise then you have been missing a lot
Tom Cruise in this movie belongs to an American Special Intelligence with a team that can make the most impossible missions look easy. Tom Cruise and his team get to save the world and they drive pretty amazing cars and motorcycles in doing that.
This old BMW drove on the stairs
Personally, I am always looking forward to the driving scene of any Mission Impossible movie.
Extraction is a recent and one of the best action movies Netflix ever. Chris Hemsworth, a freelance black market mercenary is hired to save the kidnapped son of a drug lord and it was just the most impossible task ever in a city totally controlled by the opposition.
This movie ended in the saddest way
This movie brought to light a 2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class that was used in a chase scene with incredible driving skills. A Toyota Corolla also did the job of a getaway car and it was fun watching our everyday cars being driven in ways we have never seen.
7. Bad Boys for life
Bad Boys is an action/comedy movie by two legends; Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Both American detectives are always trying to stop the untimely death of some bad guy because of criminal activity.
When you see Will Smith with a gun, just know it is about to go down
This movie was first released in 2003 and fast forward to 2020, part 2 was released. Will Smith drives a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S and he really drives it crazy. Something sad happened to the car but we don’t mind because he got another fast car.
8. Need for Speed
Need for Speed game is one of the most successful racing games ever made but in 2014, the movie came as a surprise and it was one of the best action movies ever made for a lover of cars.
Paul Aaron just showed us how a street race movie should be like
The storyline has Aaron Paul as the lead character; a mechanic and street racer that was implicated but later redeemed and glorified after a couple of long drives with his blonde girlfriend.
This movie shows all types of cars but there was a special Shelby Mustang that still has everyone talking today.
The notorious Mustang
Make sure you watch this movie very soon.
9. Baby Driver
He actually looks like a baby hehe
Baby Driver shows us one of the most underrated performance cars in action from the hands of Ansel Elgort. What car am I talking about? The Subaru WRX.
A Subaru is very scarce in Nigeria
The movie is about a weird stunts driver that joined a heist gang as the getaway driver. The movie shows how young boys do dirty things just to make sure they are able to put food on the table for their families.
10. Mad Max Fury Road
Mad Max is an award-winning action/adventure movie with a lot of weird cars. The main thrill in this movie for me is how you see regular cars being modified to look monstrous and driven by weird people.
Too many crazy cars in this movie
Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron were the heroes of this movie. Saving a post-apocalyptic wasteland from the hands of its tyrant leader who has decided to hoard water for its people.
The transporter is a movie sequel by Jason Statham. Jason just transports almost anything with his sleeper cars for majorly bad guys and he ends up getting in trouble because of his curiosity.
The Transporter will make you love sleeper cars
A sleeper car is a car that does not look fast/powerful but actually is.
The way Jason drives cars in this movie will make you realize that driving is actually a superpower.
Overdrive is one of the most recent and best action movies you can watch involving cars. Two brothers that learnt stealing from their father are into stealing ultra-rare and classic cars just to sell them in the black market.
Two Brothers Stealing classic cars...hmmm
In this movie, they embarked on a mission to steal one of the rarest Bugattis but got caught and had to repay the owner with a huge favour. The plot twist that happened after is why this movie is on this list.
If you are a lover of classic and rare cars, you will learn a great deal from watching this movie as it has been one of the best action movies 2020 so far.

13. James Bond Spectre
James Bond has always been a classic action movie of all time but in spectre by Daniel Craig, we see the Aston Martin DB10 in action from the hands of the movie star.
James Bond is a Classic...catch up on all Daniel Craig's Part
It is not just the driving skills that make this movie awesome but the way the cars are always kitted with fitments and weapons that makes the car extraordinary.
14. Ride Along
Ride Along is a 2 part sequel by Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. The movie shows how Kevin Hart; an unserious cop and professional gamer used his knowledge from video games to save lives alongside detective ice cube.
When you see a comedian with a Pistol...you should expect the unexpected
The American cars in the sequel made it fun for me to watch.
The Dodge Charger SRT 8 did a lot of awesome driving
Ice Cube loves him performance cars for his missions and it was just incredible to see how he used these cars to accomplish his missions.
Collide is a movie about love, money and cars. A young man in love had some dealings with a drug lord and it leads to the drug lord kidnapping his sick girlfriend.
What can you do for love?
Nicholas Hoult had to find a way to save his girlfriend and also steal the drug lord’s money and it was almost impossible because they were out to kill him.
The away he drove away from all this mess is what makes the movie stay on this list. You need to see how cars were driven to the breaking point in this movie.
Now, you know 15 best action movies you must watch that teach us how to drive like a boss but do not forget that most of the stunts in these movies are unreal and staged. There are a lot of things cars cannot do that we see them do in action movies.
