Kevin Hart‘s Die Hart is finally here and it’s not short on laughs. The action-comedy film originally aired as a series on Quibi but after the streaming service got shut down, the series was bought by Prime Video and turned into a film. Die Hart follows an exaggerated version of Kevin Hart as he tries to shed the persona of the funny guy and try his in action movies. But to do that he has to be trained and who better to train him than John Travolta? So, if you liked the action comedy here are some more fun movies you could watch next.

Guns Akimbo (Rent on Prime Video)
Synopsis: Nerdy video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonizing comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles’ hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the “fun.” Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Samara Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent. Gleefully echoing elements of Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the Purge franchise, and videogames like Mortal Kombat, Guns Akimbo is hilariously dark, viciously violent, and potentially — chillingly — prescient. Director Jason Lei Howden (Deathgasm) foretells of a future that may soon await us: drone-captured live feeds, UFC-like competitions pushed to an extreme, and online streaming platforms used for gladiatorial entertainment all around the world. As Miles navigates the underworld of Skizm, the stakes — and the ratings — have never been higher.
