A thriller has dropped on Netflix and viewers are saying it’s ‘one of the best movies of all time’.

With there being a huge catalogue of films on the streaming platform, it can be incredibly difficult to find the right movie to settle down and watch.

But if you like action and thriller, then you may be sorted as an ‘underrated’ title is now available on Netflix to stream – and it’s likely you’ve never heard of it.

Watch the trailer for the gripping action thriller in the clip below…

Security, directed by Alain DesRochers, is a 2017 film that stars Antonio Banderas (Puss in Boots), Gabriella Wright (The Perfect Husband), Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island), and Chad Lindberg (I Spit on Your Grave).

It follows a former Marine Corps security captain who finds a job as a mall security guard and ends up having to protect an 11-year-old girl named Jamie from a gang that wants to kill her.

The movie, which had an estimated budget of $15 million, ended up being a box office flop – grossing a reported $776,522, as per Box Office Mojo.

Despite this, it has found a wave of new fans over on social media, who are insisting that it’s ‘underrated’.

Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), one person writes: “Found a good film on Netflix called Security, starring Ben Kingsley and Antonio Banderas. Recommended.”

A second says: “Put this on one day when I was bored, surprisingly good movie.”

Security on Netflix with Antonio Banderas is like Die Hard meets Home Alone and is a seriously underrated movie,” another adds.

“I recommend this movie to anyone that will watch,” somebody else commented.

A sixth person writes: “Currently watching Security (2017) starring Antonio Banderas. Really good so far.”

Although the film may have a ton of fans on social media, it’s only scored 33 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Netflix viewers have also been talking about another movie – which dropped in 2011 – titled In Time.

Having recently trended on the platform, it’s left many viewers spooked as they believe it has perfectly predicted the world today.

The movie’s unique plot revolves around time being a form of currency and people not ageing after turning 25, resulting in the rich living for long and the poor dying young.

Although it had mixed critical reviews at the time of its release, many fans have praised it online, with one writing: “This movie is more relevant now than ever, seriously underrated.”

In agreement, another added: “But what caught me in is the realistic portrayal of society, where the rich keep getting rich and the poor dies. Timely and relevant isn’t it?”
