How do you make an action movie persistently marketable for the rest of time? Set it during the Holidays! But wait: do Christmas and action movies really go together? Of course they do! There's nothing that says happy holidays like shooting a guy's face off and these action films set during Christmas deliver bodies, and action, like presents from Santa.
What are the best Christmas action movies? Nothing says Christmas like a good shoot 'em up or crime thriller. These movies are the best of the Christmas movies that have nothing to do with Christmas genre. For most of these films they could have been set during any time of the year and they wouldn't have been affected a bit. Half the movies on this list are set in LA, almost entirely because a real Christmas movie in LA would be boring. No snow, no trees, no winter clothes? See why they added gunplay?If you have Netflix, there are some pretty good fantasy movies streaming on Netflix There aren't a lot of good zombie movies on Netflix, but I'll save that rant for another list.
