Adventure Time

Adventure movies have always been a big hit in Hollywood.These movies have mostly done well at the box office and also managed to be crowd pleasers right from the early 40's to the 21st century.Even many of the biggest movie franchises have been adventure films,be it Harry Potter or the LOTR movies.People love this genre of movies as they get to see something they don't usually experience in their lives,be it an engaging treasure hunt or survival in the jungle,the audience is always ready to be a part of it:). So here are some of the many adventure movies i liked:).






Blood Diamond (2006)
Blood Diamond is a very realistic adventure thriller:). Here, a fisherman, a smuggler, and a syndicate of businessmen match wits over the possession of a priceless diamond.The movie works because of its good direction,good performances by Di Caprio and the rest of the cast:). The movie keeps you engaged throughout its length,as the characters struggle in various situations.Also cinematography is really good,all the locations have been shot beautifully in the film.Overall, Blood Diamond is a really engaging political adventure that you don't wanna miss:).

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
If its adventure you are looking for,you won't find anything better than Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade:). This is the third movie of the Indiana Jones franchise,and definitely the best of the series:).

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)  
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is one of the most entertaining movies you will ever see:). This is the second movie of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and definitely the most entertaining of the series:). Here, Jack Sparrow races to recover the heart of Davy Jones to avoid enslaving his soul to Jones' service, as other friends and foes seek the heart for their own agenda as well.This movie kicks off really well with some really good action and chase sequences in the jungle, and literally never stops or goes down on its adrenaline pace:). Also what works for it is its interesting plot, which engages you throughout the film:). Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow does a good job and is definitely the soul of the film with his wittiness and weird humor:). Overall POTC 2 is a really engaging and entertaining adventure movie that you shouldn't miss;).

  2. National Treasure II was also equally thrilling and interesting and so were movies adapted from Dan Brown's books (Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons)
