This article discusses 5 films like ATHENA you must watch.

ATHENA may have had a quiet release on Netflix, but it has made an impact on those that have watched it (to which our review of Athena can attest). And if you’re on the lookout for something similar to watch, below are five films that you should consider.

5 films like ATHENA you must watch

Unhinged (2020)

The first film on the list is Unhinged. Telling the story of a bad day developing into absolute madness, it features Russell Crowe in one of his most frightening roles. What starts as an angry beep and a brief argument during a traffic hour leads to a battle to survive. 

Peppermint (2018)

Critics may have hated Peppermint, yet audiences were a lot more positive. And rightly so, it’s a great watch. Jennifer Garner is the leading star, and, like many of the other characters on the list, she chases revenge after her family is brutally murdered.

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

An A-list feature as Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx, and Viola Davis are among the amazing cast in this film. His journey takes him to dark places after a thug murders his wife and daughter and he begins to brutally murder anyone he sees as not allowing justice to be served.

The Brave One (2007)

Starring Jodie Foster as Erica, she goes on a mad mission of revenge after her partner is beaten to death by heartless thugs. But rather than just focusing on the gore, Erica begins to wonder that by going after revenge, she makes herself no better than the very thugs who tore her life apart.

La Haine (1995)

And finally, focusing more on social unrest rather than revenge in this French crime drama. La Haine tells the story of three friends who live in one of the poorest areas in Paris. Telling the story of corruption and the inability to get justice, the film has an ending that many have remembered long after its release.
