Classic adventure movies for guys are full of action, suspense and a great quest. These sweeping epics take an ordinary guy and take him on an extraordinary journey where often, not only his life, but also the fate of the world is at stake.

  1. The “Indiana Jones” Franchise No adventurer is as iconic as good ole&rsquo Indiana Jones. With his fedora hat, leather jacket and bull whip, this archeologist is out to find the worlds most powerful lost treasures. In classic adventures that span four films, Indiana Jones goes up against Nazis, Communists and cultists while finding exotic treasures such as the Ark of the Covenant, the Holy Grail, and even a portal to another dimension. You can catch Indiana Jones in the classic adventure movies “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”, “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls.”

  2. The “Star Wars” Franchise No adventure movie is as epic and universal as the “Star Wars” series. Encompassing six films, these classic adventure movies tell the story of the battle of good vs. evil and father vs. son as the noble Jedi battle the evil Sith for control of the galaxy. In adventures that span the entire galaxy, our heroes travel from planet to exotic planet in their quest to defeat the evil empire and restore civilization to the galaxy.

  3. The “Lord of the Rings” Trilogy Based on the series of books, this trilogy of classic adventure movies deals with the quest of a fellowship of individuals to destroy the One Ring before it falls into the hands of evil. This sweeping epic has the heroes travel across the lands of Middle Earth, from snow-capped mountains to tree-covered forests to the volcano-ravaged center of Mordor. There are no guns or lightsabers to be found in this world, only classic sword battles and large-scale melees of man vs. orc.

  4. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” Franchise This classic adventure movie, which takes place over a series of three and counting films, follows the adventures of a noble blacksmith as he sails the Caribbean to save his one true love. While that may seem sappy for guys, the antics of the rogue Captain Jack Sparrow are not be missed as lies, swindles and cheats his way across the seas.
