This year was an interesting year for movies. While there are a few places where 2017 faltered from a cinematic perspective, one place where it was remarkably solid was in action set pieces. From the straight action of John Wick and Atomic Blonde to Edgar Wright's beautifully choreographed Baby Driver, there were some great moments for action fans this year.

Several of this year's comic book movies had some standout moments, and even some films that weren't strictly good overall had moments worth seeing if you're an action fan. Without further ado, here are the 10 best action scenes of 2017.

Atomic Blonde - Stairway Fight

We're calling it the Stairway Fight here, but it's so much more than that. Director David Leitch, who had previously helmed the excellent John Wick, takes action filmmaking to the next level with a sequence in Atomic Blonde that seems to go on forever. While it wasn't actually filmed in a single take, the cuts are hidden to present a real-time escape from a building that sees Charlize Theron take on a small army. It's a physical and visceral battle, and we see Theron get beaten up herself, to a degree you rarely see from women on the big screen. Watching Atomic Blonde is entirely worth it for this sequence alone.
