Adventure movies are almost universally loved because they allow us to go to places we’d never be able to see, and to take part in stories beyond our wildest dreams.

Rotten Tomatoes, the movie and entertainment site, ranked these three as the best classic adventure movies:

“The Adventures of Robin Hood”

An old film from 1938, this classic boasts something few adventure movies can. It has a 100% rating on the Tomatometer. The film has been called the best Robin Hood movie ever made, and perhaps the best film that titular actor Errol Flynn was ever involved with. 

Variety said of Hood, “It is cinematic pageantry at its best, a highly imaginative telling of folklore in all the hues of Technicolor.”  

Tell Us: Which Actress Is Your All-Time Favorite?

“The Dark Knight”

This movie is credited with reinventing superhero movies, and it pushed director Christopher Nolan into the film world’s mainstream consciousness. It’s been called the greatest superhero movie ever made, and indeed it very well may be. With thrilling adventure scenes, a riveting plot, and an all-time great performance by Heath Ledger as The Joker, it’s no wonder the Orange County Register said, “The Dark Knight is probably the smartest and most stylish action movie since the "The Matrix." It thinks and philosophizes.”  

“The Terminator”

Another 100% rating on the Tomatometer gets “The Terminator” a place on this list of top classic adventure movies. Terminator launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger into the stratosphere. The critical consensus for the film reads, “With its impressive action sequences, taut economic direction, and relentlessly fast pace, it's clear why The Terminator continues to be an influence on sci-fi and action flicks.”
