3 underrated action movies on Amazon Freevee you should watch in February

Now that there are ads on Prime Video, watching films on that platform is essentially the same experience as watching them on Amazon Freevee. The key difference is that Freevee lets movie lovers enjoy films without subscribing to Amazon Prime. And these days, it’s rare for a major streamer to have any kind of option for people who don’t want to spend any money.

Free movies are always welcome, if the titles are actually good. Freevee may have wide selection, but the vast majority of its action titles are of the direct-to-DVD variety. We had to really dig deep into the Freevee library to find the three underrated action movies on Amazon Freevee that you should watch in February. And if you don’t mind watching a few commercials, you can easily get your action fix for the month.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017)

Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds in The Hitman's Bodyguard.

Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds stars in The Hitman’s Bodyguard as Michael Bryce, a bodyguard for the rich and powerful. Or at least he was, until a hitman named Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) murdered Bryce’s client right in front of him and destroyed his reputation. Years later, their paths unexpectedly cross again when Kincaid accepts a deal to expose Belarus President Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman) for his war crimes.

When Interpol agent Amelia Roussel (Élodie Yung) realizes that she can’t protect Kincaid’s life by herself, she gives her ex-boyfriend, Bryce, a chance to redeem himself by discretely escorting Kincaid. But when Bryce discovers that Kincaid is the man who ruined his life, he’s less than willing to protect him as assassins close in on both of them.

White House Down (2013)

If you can’t tell the difference between White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen, then we don’t blame you. Both movies essentially have the same plot, but Olympus Has Fallen actually got two sequels. Channing Tatum headlines this one-off movie as John Cale, a veteran-turned-Capitol policeman who wants to join the Secret Service and also impress his daughter, Emily (Joey King), during a visit to the White House.

When Emil Stenz (Jason Clarke) leads an attack on the White House that leaves President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) vulnerable, Cale takes the initiative to save the president’s life. Now, Cale just needs to find his daughter, protect Sawyer, and unravel the conspiracy behind the attack before America is thrust into another war.

Watch White House Down on Freevee.

The November Man (2014)

What do you get when a former James Bond teams up with a former Bond girl? It’s The November Man, which stars four-time 007 star Pierce Brosnan and Quantum of Solace‘s Olga Kurylenko. Brosnan portrays Peter Devereaux, a former CIA operative who retired after a disastrous mission with rookie agent David Mason (Luke Bracey).

Devereaux is brought back into the world of espionage by his old boss, John Hanley (Bill Smitrovich), in order to protect and extract Natalia Ulanova (Mediha Musliović), the wife of the new Russian leader, General Arkady Fedorov (Lazar Ristovski), who wants to expose her husband’s war crimes. When Ulanova is murdered, only Alice Fournier (Kurylenko) has the proof that Devereaux needs. And to get Alice out safely, Devereaux will have to go through the CIA and Mason.

This overlooked 2023 disaster movie is Netflix’s newest hit right now. Here’s why you should watch it
A town is destroyed in The Abyss.

When Netflix recently added The Abyss to its lineup, there probably weren't very high expectations for it. After all, it's not James Cameron's The Abyss from 1989. Instead, it's a Swedish disaster film that is now one of the most popular movies on Netflix.

That's the thing about Netflix's algorithm: It's very unpredictable. More often then not, seemingly random films are suddenly more popular now than they ever were when they hit theaters. In this case, American audiences would have never seen The Abyss if it hadn't suddenly arrived on a large platform like Netflix. But if you're on the fence about checking it out, here are three reasons to watch The Abyss on Netflix.

3 great movies leaving Peacock in February you have to watch
The cast of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.

Peacock celebrated the streaming premiere of Oppenheimer by adding several other Christopher Nolan movies to its lineup for February. What Peacock declined to mention is that The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, and Dunkirk are all leaving at the end of the month. So you only have a short time left if you want to curate your own Nolan film festival at home.

Our picks for the three movies leaving Peacock in February that you have to watch only includes one of Nolan's films, because it just wouldn't be fair to give him the entire spotlight. Our other picks include a family drama starring George Clooney, as well as a Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller comedy that is turning 20 in 2024.
