After the best Asian Film of 2018, we think we should also compile more specific lists of the best films of the year, because many great films in 2018 will inevitably be missed. The first list in this regard includes the best action movies in 2018. In the collection of films, in contrast to the above, most entries come from Japan and have more diversity, because only three times the country represented is China, which may be different from the traditional Hong Kong action movies.
Some films are not real awards, such as one or two Gagas. It's a social movie, at least like an action movie, but in any case, there's good reason to include it in this category, at least in part.
Less gossip, here are the best Asian action movies in 2018, in random order. Some films may premiere in 2017, but since most of them are released in 2018, we decided to include them.
1. Superheroes (vikramaditya motwane, India)
It is reasonable and understandable that bavish Josh and Siku were anxious at first. In addition, a person who has never fought will not suddenly become a martial arts expert after months of training. Of course, this is not the case here, which makes the film a good original story. (zaveri rhythm)
2. Buybus (Eric Marty, Philippines)
All this clearly shows that "buybus" is a combination of "the raid" and "the village", but I also think it has some similarities with "Mad Max", especially in the presentation of villains and background. However, in terms of expression, this film is a masterpiece of this type of film. Even the protagonist looks like a superhero, and the script is sometimes a little exaggerated, which adds to the overall flavor. (Panos kotzathanasis)
3. Nightfall (Timo tjaahjanto, Indonesia)
The film directed by Timo tjaahjanto is dominated by two elements, which are actually complementary: action and violence. With regard to the first film, we can only admit that the work on action arrangement and stunts (by IKO uwais and his team) is impressive. They are constantly looking for new methods and "skills" to perform. This feature is also obvious in "head burst". In this case, anything can be used as a weapon, from animal bones (in the scene of a butcher's shop) to billiards, and even signs that say "Beware of wet floors". "Normal" weapons are certainly here, including guns and machetes, but most importantly, all kinds of knives, which provide the most impressive scenes in the film, as well as hand to hand combat.

4. Witches: Part I: Subversion (Park Xun Zhen, Korea)
Some people may feel that the film takes too long to start, but this is a story that is obviously designed as a multi film legend (Trilogy) and the park takes time to develop his character until the film's last scene, exploding in glorious violence. The action scenes and sets are bloody, cruel and exciting. Parker is waiting to give us a turning point in the story. When it comes, it is fresh and unexpected. (zaveri rhythm)
5. "We won't die tonight" (Richard sommes, Philippines)
The story begins in a dramatic tone, but once it starts to act, it never stops. After a bloody fight, the film becomes bloody. After a point, with the characters using machetes, hammers, axes and almost every object, it can be regarded as a weapon. (Panos kotzathanasis)
