8 Must-Watch Action Movies for Awesome Moms on Mother's Day

"Hey, c'mon. We're superheroes. What could happen?" -- Elastigirl

Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be all about brunches and begonias this year. If you have a mother, grandmother, or just someone who has had a kick-butt impact on your life, treat them to something a little different this time around. I’m talking top-notch action flicks!

So you’re probably thinking explosions and fist fights don’t exactly convey the traditional Mother’s Day  “I love you, Mom!” message, but hear me out first.  I don’t know your mom personally, but I would be willing to bet that if Skynet’s artificial intelligence seized the military she would step right in and take it down.

Make this Mother’s Day extra special by celebrating mom’s inner Sarah Conner or simply thanking her for not letting you end up like that rebel without a cause Jim Stark.

All in all these films are a less traditional way of letting the moms in your life know you care.

Oh! The best part is that all of these movies are available through FiOS On Demand immediately and don’t require a fancy card or wrapping paper. Enjoy!
