DStv’s action attraction movies this week, 4-10 June

Stunts, punch-ups, slick scenes and heart racing action – wake up from that winter nap with slick flicks like The Doorman, Birds of Prey, Killerman and Island of Fire this week on DStv.

The temptation in Winter is to doze off in our little nests in front of the TV, but if you’re looking for edge-of-your-seat action, this is your week at the movies. The ladies have swagger, the guys are trouble, and the stunts and fights are outrageous.

Just watch Margot Robbie in action in Birds of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn. The film’s stunts were inspired by Charlize Theron kicking butt in Atomic Blonde, and the fast and funny sleight of hand in Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master. Each member of the Birds of Prey has her own fighting style and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) is particularly worth watching. Then, former Batwoman star Ruby Rose brings believable combat skills to her lead role in The Doorman, the story of an all-out mercenary assault on an exclusive New York City block of flats.

The guys hold their own, too, with Jackie Chan playing a supporting role in the brutal and action-packed prison “escape” tale Island of Fire. And Liam Hemsworth (Hunger Games, not Thor) wakes up in Killerman with far too much money and too many drugs and no recollection of how he got either – it’s a petty criminal’s version of the Jason Bourne-style crime action film on Showmax.

If that has you in the mood for pulse-pounding action, you can also check out TNT’s (DStv channel 137) Dystopian Sundays and the new additions to the DC Universe collection on Showmax.
