Despite having access to a deep bench of titles in Paramount’s film library, Paramount+ doesn’t always have the most robust selection of action movies. But Paramount+ is on its game this month, and action fans will likely be very happy with their options in February.
Our selections for the three action movies on Paramount+ you should check out in February include a cult classic, an underrated adventure flick, and one of 2023’s biggest action titles. That should be more than enough to give action fans their fix until March arrives.
The attempt to turn Geena Davis into an action star led to two big-time box office bombs: Cutthroat Island and The Long Kiss Goodnight. That’s unfortunate because The Long Kiss Goodnight is the one that turned out to be a great, underrated action movie with a cult following. Davis plays Samantha Caine, a woman who has no memory of her life prior to eight years in her past. That hasn’t stopped Samantha from making a life for herself with her husband, Hal (Tom Amandes), and their daughter, Caitlin (Yvonne Zima).
Regardless, Samantha still wants to know who she was, so she hires private investigator Mitch Henessey (Samuel L. Jackson) to uncover the truth. By the time Samantha learns who she really is, her enemies descend upon her and threaten to destroy her family. Rather than let that happen, Samantha slips back into her lethal persona and targets a terrorist plot that could threaten the country.

Much like The Long Kiss Goodnight, the story of Sahara‘s box office failure and the film’s behind-the-scenes turmoil tend to overshadow the movie itself. This wasn’t the great action flick it could have been, but it’s a fun adaptation of Clive Cussler’s novel, although the author didn’t agree.
Matthew McConaughey stars as Dirk Pitt, a treasure hunter and National Underwater and Marine Agency operative. Dirk and his professional partner, Al Giordino (Steve Zahn), save Dr. Eva Rojas (Penélope Cruz) from execution by African forces loyal to Brigadier General Zateb Kazim (The Walking Dead‘s Lennie James) and businessman Yves Massarde (Lambert Wilson). The new trio also discovers evidence of a long-lost treasure of Confederacy gold while attempting to discover the source of a disease that could threaten the entire world.

It took an extremely long time for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One to get its streaming premiere, and you can’t blame the algorithm for that! This time, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team are facing the Entity, an AI system that’s already well on its way to controlling the world — and it’s sentient. The world’s governments want to control the Entity, but Ethan is convinced it must be destroyed.
After Ethan and his team go rogue yet again, their efforts to stop the Entity are foiled by his old nemesis, Gabriel (Esai Morales), and a lethal assassin named Paris (Pom Klementieff). The wildcard in this equation is Grace (Hayley Atwell), an enigmatic thief who has no idea what she’s stepping into when she gets between Ethan and his goal. Grace may not always align with Ethan, but he goes to great lengths to keep her alive.

Unless a hot new movie was just released in theaters or via streaming, the biggest question for movie night is often what to watch. One person might be in the mood for a particular type of movie, while someone else wants another genre. It’s either compromise or roll the dice and pick something neither person has chosen but is worth the surprise.
You could scroll through the menu of movies on a streaming service with your eyes closed and watch wherever it lands when you say “stop.” Or you could take our advice and consider these three underrated movies on Prime Video.

It’s the month of the groundhog, Valentine’s Day, and a time when you feel, justifiably or not, that winter is nearing its end and spring is almost here. It’s also the time to check out great new shows while you cozy up at home and hibernate until the flowers bloom.
If you’re looking for good options, Amazon Prime Video has you covered. Along with all the best shows on Amazon Prime Video, there are also underrated shows you need to watch in February that don’t get the same hype (or that you might not even realize are available to stream there). These shows were all released over the last decade, and one requires an add-on subscription to watch beyond the pilot episode.
