8. The Mother
The Mother premiered on Netflix on May 12, 2023. It’s one of the best new action movies on Netflix this year, but it probably won’t remain that way for long with Extraction 2 starring Chris Hemsworth coming to Netflix soon.
The Mother stars Jennifer Lopez as an assassin who is forced to give up her daughter at birth and remain absent from her life. Years later when her daughter is threatened, she tries to protect her daughter and keep her safe.
When I first read about this movie, I thought it was going to have a comedy element to it, as we’ve seen with Red Notice and other big action movies with huge stars, but it is not that. This is a serious action movie with some great action sequences and stunts.
Although the movie didn’t get the best reviews, it’s a must-watch of the action movies on Netflix. If you’re a fan of action movies, I think you’ll like this one!
