Tom Jolliffe on the must-see straight-to-video action films of 2014...
If you’re a little fed up of the never ending stream of remakes, kid friendly PG13 (12A or 15 here) CGI heavy theatrics and Marvel/DC action films that fill up the multiplexes, or you’re no stranger to the unrepentant, simple delights of a bit of straight to video (or Netflix) action, then here is a list of the best to look out for this year.
As big screen action caters more and more for younger audiences, straight to video still largely offers a bit more adult entertainment.

2014 has several interesting Dtv projects in the pipeline that might skip theaters, but could still give you a damn good time if you turn your brain off beforehand.
Honourable Mention: Full Love/The Eagle Path/Soldiers
The Eagle Path has been Van Damme’s pet project for years with him directing, writing, producing and starring in the movie. »
