Movie recommendations

The Gold on BBC iplayer is brilliant… 6 part true story of a robbery where the thieves stumbled upon 6 tonnes of gold by accident and how they managed to get it into the market.

I suggest Nobody and Driver. Don’t judge them based on the actors. Both pretty good “action” movies for the trainer.

There’s also a six part pod on the BBC Sounds app about John Palmer (the guy who smelted all the gold in Gold).

Some excellent suggestions. Many id forgotten

The Harder They Fall might be up your alley. A little different than what you list but has some good music and was really well done overall. Another recent-ish release would be Bullet Train - that one kept me glued to the screen the whole movie

If you like Guy Ritchie movies I’d recommend Man From U.N.C.L.E.

A little international espionage, some action, Elizabeth Debicki, what more could you ask for?

Yea, enjoyed bullet train, i need to do some downloading as no internet whr i train😢

Bullet Train was funny.

Fall (Netflix) - I could hardly watch it!, about a couple of lady’s climbing up a radio transmission tower.

2nd on Bullet Train.

Also Atomic Blond, Salt, Wanted, RRR (it’s bonkers and great!), Pacific Rim (who doesn’t like big robots putting the smack down on big monsters?)

Continuing the John Wick theme, I’d recommend anything with Jason Statham. Films like Transporter and Crank are not classics, but there’s action every 5 minutes so you’re not going to get bored. He’s also in in films like Expendables if you prefer bigger budgets.

The first transporter was actually really really good.

I think a key is Watching movies you’ve seen as when the Vo2 pain comes it doesn’t matter if you’ve missed stuff

Why has no one here mentioned Mad Max Fury Road so far? It is the film to watch if you are in need of exploding cars and Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are :fire:

I think I spend enough time already on all sorts of Fury Road :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Watership Down is fun for the whole family

Wrath of Man
Riddick series starting with Pitch Black are on Netflix at the moment

@HLaB Yep, big fan. Good when you’re in a threshold effort and realize its 3/4 done because of the movie scene
