National Treasure (2004, dir. Jon Turteltaub)

A treasure seeker is in a race against time to find a fabled hoard. Daft but hugely enjoyable chase and puzzle-based comedy-thriller, riffing off Dan Brown, Indiana Jones, and Mission: Impossible equally. Lots of fun if you’re in the mood.

The Mechanic (2011, dir. Simon West)

A professional assassin mentors a young man while seeking revenge for a betrayal. Okay remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson original, with plenty of generally well-orchestrated action to hurry the plot along. A sequel, 2016’s Mechanic: Resurrection, followed.

6 Days (2017, dir. Toa Fraser)

A dramatisation of the 1980 Iranian embassy siege. Glum retelling which struggles to evidence a point for its existence, delivering neither on insight, telling detail, nor even on SAS action. Who Dare Wins was, at least, bonkers.

I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore (2017, dir. Macon Blair)

A timid nursing assistant teams up with a neighbour to retrieve stolen goods; matters soon get out of control. Splendid black-comedy thriller with whiffs of early Coens and some genuine surprises as matters ratchet up. Recommended.

Also, here’s xussia’s opinion.

The Accountant (2016, dir. Gavin O’Connor)

A forensic accountant with social skills issues is also an assassin, specialising in killing international criminals. Oddball action drama with a weird premise and a lead character with the kind of autism found only in movies. Not terrible, but feels like three different spec scripts combined into one.

Eliminators (2016, dir. James Nunn)

An ex-agent under an assumed identity has his cover blown; now he has to rescue his child. Straightforward DTV actioner with plenty of decent fist fights and some okay gunplay; a slightly clunky script and some variable acting aside, this is fun, and works well within its limited budget.

The Limehouse Golem (2017, dir. Juan Carlos Medina)

A spree killer – The Limehouse Golem – terrorises London; four suspects must be eliminated. Theatrical and ambitious adaptation of the Peter Ackroyd novel with lots to recommend it. Not wholly successful, but interesting and entertaining throughout. Worth your time and thought.
