Welcome to the May 2018 edition of ACTION STREAM! After a pretty quiet April, May kicks down the door and bombards us with great action movies on all three platforms.  But it's Netflix who brought the biggest guns to the party as it flies through the air, dual-wielding the Cambodian actioner Jailbreak and John Woo's Manhunt.


Netflix may have the slimmest lineup of the three this month, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality.  In addition to the afformentioned heavy hitters, this month sees the launch of Wanted, The Bourne Ultimatum and the perpetually reliable Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
