While most action movies are made with guys in mind, there are plenty of great action adventure movies to watch with a date. Often, the best action adventure movies to watch with a date include a romantic element alongside the fights, chases, and explosions. It also doesn't hurt when the stars are attractive and have good chemistry with one another. Here are some perfect action adventure movies to watch with a date.
"Raiders of the Lost Ark" – On top of simply being one of the grandest adventure films ever made, there is a lot to recommend about the firs Indiana Jones film among action adventure movies to watch with a date. Harrison Ford, in the lead as Indiana Jones, is a favorite of many women across many age groups. As he searches for the lost Ark of the Covenant, he is also involved in a romance with Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood, filled with sparkling battle-of-the-sexes dialogue straight from a classic screwball romantic comedy. There are scares, thrills, and laughs a-plenty, making "Raiders" the best among action adventure movies to watch with a date.
"Romancing the Stone" – This one has a similar appeal to Raiders, in that is a globe-trotting adventure with a romance at its heart. In it, a romance writer played by Kathleen Turner goes to South America to find her kidnapped sister, and gets involved with a dangerous treasure hunt. There she meets Michael Douglas as a soldier-of-fortune who agrees to help her escape. Even more than in "Raiders," the romance is at the heart of the story, but there is still plenty of good action, making this another good choice among action adventure movies to watch with a date.
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie star as the titular couple in this high-flying action film filled with sexual tension. They are a married couple who are, unbeknownst to each other, also spies set against one another. Their gunfights replace witty repartee, but this is still a romance at heart, even with all the bullets flying. Girls will love Brad, guys will like watching Angelina, and everybody wins with this final example of action adventure movies to watch with a date.
