As we’ve been saying all week, 2014 was truly a great year for movies. The entire calendar was filled up with both memorable and surprising features, from indies to blockbusters, and these titles were made up of some incredible cinematic moments that we will not be soon forgetting. This holds especially true where action films are concerned, as over the last 12 months we have gotten to see some badass sequences that have absolutely blown our minds.

There were certainly many great options to choose from, and it was a challenge whittling this list down, but we have thought long and hard to determine the 10 most badass action sequences found in movies in 2014. What did we pick? You’ll have to read on to find out!

SPOILER WARNING! The following article does contain some major spoilers for a few of the films on this list. Tread lightly!

X-Men: Days of Future Past
X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Quicksilver Jailbreak
One of the inherent joys of the X-Men franchise is that it opens the doors to so many different kinds of super powers to portray on the big screen. Since the beginning of the series, we’ve seen everything from advanced healing and telepathy to fire manipulation and morphing. With X-Men: Days of Future Past, however, one new ability that was explored by director Bryan Singer was the concept of super speed – and the results were glorious.

Shot using super high speed cameras and set to the tune of "Time In A Bottle" by Jim Croce, the Quicksilver sequence in the 2014 blockbuster is handedly one of the best we’ve seen in the X-Men franchise, and just extremely fun to watch. Evan Peters’ performance as the silver-haired mutant wound up being the stand-out performance of Days of Future Past, and a great deal of that can be attributed to his gleeful, albeit non-lethal takedown of all the Pentagon guards doing their best to keep Magneto locked up. It’s a rather magical scene.
