Best-Reviewed Action & Adventure Movies 2020

A revisionist romp through Victorian England awaits adventurous movie thrill-seekers in Enola Holmes, which fashions young star Millie Bobby Brown, a budding sleuth hot in the footsteps of her famous older brother. Then, the military movie canon gets another medal with The Outpost, depicting the most brutal American conflict out of the Afghanistan War. Tom Hanks’ Greyhound is nearby in the wings, though its presentation of the war movie is in a more decidedly classical mode. Meanwhile, the post-apocalypse is still going strong in Love and Monsters, and the surprise hit Bad Boys For Life is the best kind of action movie throwback.
