Netflix good movies with action/suspense

Hi everyone! I'm in a lot of pain and trying to distract myself with Netflix movies, I'm having a hard time concentrating so it needs a lot of action, like action, suspense, or maybe thrillers. It can't be slow and has to suck you in or it's hard for me to focus on right now. Thank you for any recommendations, I've been going through old posts but thought there may be some I've missed. I just watched Project Power which was so-so, watched Fury (friend's movie), then finished the series The Witcher and Boys (Amazon).

I just watched 1BD. Very intense, not for everyone. Go to Netflix and check it out.

Not the traditional action/suspense movie, but give "Miracle" a try.

 

Yes, it's a Disney movie. It's the story of the 1980 Olympic hockey team. 

 

It's very fast paced, draws you in almost immediately, has lots of on-ice action and if you play close attention, hilariously funny.

 

If it's not your thing, I'm not offended. Just offering a suggestion.

@leggett2  That movie was better than I thought it would be. So scary.

I enjoyed it except for the horrible oven scene. Won't give any more of it

away but it reminded me of twilight zone. Good suggestion to take your

mind off everything else except this movie.

@Katmary: If you like to binge-watch TV series, I'd like to recommend "Designated Survivor". It's a political thriller with Keifer Sutherland (3 seasons).  As far as suspense movies, I enjoyed "Dangerous Lies" and "A Fall from Grace".  Feel better! Smiley Happy

@three cees  Yeah, this movie was a little more than I thought it would be. Had my heart pumping.

Thanks everyone! I'm going to watch 1BR tonight! I watched Designated Survivor when it was on tv but never finished watching it. I'll start with the movies, if you think of any others let me know. I appreciate your input!

I don't have any movies to recommend, but if you want to binge watch a few good shows, Wentworth is my favorite show on Netflix.  Also, Offspring and Rectify, Broadchurch, The Fall, Doctor Foster.

 

That should keep you busy for a while!  Enjoy!
