There are 5 more Fast & Furious movies, plus one spin-off (Hobbs & Shaw) and number 9 coming out in a few weeks. All much better than the first 3 when arguably the franchise was still finding its feet. I'd say these 7 movies deserve to be recommended above the first 3 for taking the action to new levels every time, and making the franchise the huge success it is today.

I'd also argue that Die Hard 4 is worth a watch and has some great action, almost as good as the first 3. It's only number 5 that I really disliked - only watched it once because it's Die Hard, but I wouldn't watch it again like I do with the first 4.

Edge of Tomorrow.
Every Mission Impossible movie other than the second one (3,4 and 5 are some of my favourite action movies of all time).
Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End if you want comedy.

My favourite genre by far though is crime movies so if you ever want some recommendations there I have many many more.

I'd say these 7 movies deserve to be recommended above the first 3 for taking the action to new levels every time, and making the franchise the huge success it is today. The only problem I had was the big logo in the lower right corner but this helped me fix it.

Die Hard is awesome! Only the 5th part is rubbish

The Phone Booth.
An old film with Colin Farrell but it is still worth watching.

That's fair. The current action movies are not to everyone's taste.

Speaking of 90's action movies, Sylvester Stallone made some of the best action movies of the 80's and 90's (apart from Rambo and Rocky). I forgot to mention all of these above:

Cliffhanger
Daylight
Cobra
Tango & Cash
Lock Up
Demolition Man
The Specialist
Assassins
