John Wick (2014)

John Wick walks with his gun
Summit Entertainment

When one of the best action movies of the last 10 years is streaming for free, you’re doing yourself a disservice by not watching it. We’re referring to John Wick, the action film starring Keanu Reeves as the titular hitman. John Wick (Reeves) left the criminal underworld to live a peaceful life with his wife, Helen (Bridget Moynahan). When Helen tragically dies, she sends John a puppy to help him grieve. One night, the son of a Russian crime boss (Alfie Allen) breaks into John’s home, steals his car, and kills the puppy.

To say that was a huge mistake would be an understatement. Hell-bent on revenge, John puts on his snazzy black suit, grabs a gun, and sets off on a path of vengeance. Directed by Chad Stahelski, John Wick reinvigorated Reeves’ career, returning the talented actor to A-list status. Because of its dazzling stunt work, the John Wick franchise has become the gold standard for action sequences.

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

A soldier runs through a battlefield.

Hacksaw Ridge is a story so unfathomable that you have to believe it. No one could conjure up a story this inspiring from their imagination. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield) joins the United States Army as a combat medic. Desmond is a conscientious objector, meaning he refuses to pick up a gun. In basic training, Desmond is shunned by his fellow soldiers.

However, Desmond never caves, earning the respect of his group over time. It all comes to a head during the Battle of Okinawa. With the Americans pinned down, Desmond puts his life on the line to save others. This selflessness is at the heart of Hacksaw Ridge, a gripping war thriller about one man’s faith and heroism.

Geostorm (2017)

A group of scared people run for their lives.
Warner Bros.

Disaster movies are great forms of escapism. There’s something about watching a group of people save the world that makes for a good blockbuster. Geostorm, the 2017 film by Dean Devlin, was initially destroyed by critics. Upon further examination, Geostorm isn’t that bad, and that’s a credit to one man: Gerard Butler, whose commitment to making 1990s-style action movies should be applauded.

To combat climate change, a team of scientists led by Jake Lawson (Butler) created “Dutch Boy,” an intricate series of climate-controlling satellites that can manipulate the weather to prevent natural disasters. A few years later, Dutch Boy begins to malfunction. After an initial investigation, Jake learns a group of terrorists planted a virus in Dutch Boy to create a geostorm that could wipe out most of mankind. While Jake tries to stop the virus in space, his brothe,r Max (Jim Sturgess), searches for the person behind the virus. Time is ticking, and the world’s fate rests in the brothers’ hands.

If you have to watch one Amazon Prime Video movie in June 2024, stream this one
if you have to watch one amazon prime video movie in june 2024 stream this robert de niro midnight run

Coming into June, there's one movie that the vast majority of Amazon Prime Video subscribers are likely to check out: Oppenheimer. Christopher Nolan's latest film is also the reigning Oscar-winner for Best Picture, and it's coming to Prime Video on June 18. But because it's such an obvious pick, it's not the film we went with when choosing the Amazon Prime Video movie that you have to watch in June.

Instead, we're going with Midnight Run, a 1988 action comedy starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. It's also one of the best-ever films in its genre, and very few movies have improved upon the formula that director Martin Brest and screenwriter George Gallo used here. Even 36 years after its release, Midnight Run withstands the test of time. And we're sharing the reasons why it should be at the top of your Prime Video viewing plans in June.

Angelina Jolie as Fox in Wanted.

While Max's lineup of movies isn't quite as impressive as it used to be, it still has a number of films that are worth getting excited about. That's especially true when it comes to the movies of the last 20 years, which have been buried by the seemingly endless barrage of streaming films. Now, it's almost impossible to watch every new release, which only makes it more important to remember the underrated movies of the past before they're completely forgotten.

This month's picks for the three underrated movies on Max that you need to watch in June include one of Julia Roberts' best rom-coms, a horror remake that really delivers, and a comic book action film that has some serious star power.

3 underrated action movies on Amazon Freevee you should watch in June 2024
Betty Gilpin in The Hunt.

Now that Amazon Prime Video is running ads on its shows and movies, the future of Freevee is a little unclear. While watching movies for free is always enticing, Freevee favors quantity over quality. And the vast majority of films on Freevee are less than stellar efforts that would be direct-to-video if that was still a viable release option.

Regardless, you can still find some good or even great movies on Freevee if you scroll down far enough. We've even managed to find three underrated action movies on Freevee that we haven't recommended before. Since the selection of good movies on Freevee is so slim, that's getting harder and harder to do. So enjoy these action flicks while you can. It's anyone's guess if they will still be on Freevee beyond June.
