Movies4Men 2 was a satellite television film channel in the United Kingdom and Ireland, available as a free-to-air service on Freesat, Sky and as in the basic package on Smallworld Cable. Prior to 9 October 2006, Movies4Men 2 was previously known as ACTIONMAX. Between November 2011 and January 2012, Movies4Men 2 and Movies4Men 2 +1 were also available on Freeview in Manchester.[1]

Different from Movies4Men; the channel was aimed at the young to middle aged male viewer, focusing mainly on action and thriller film genres. As of September 2008, the channels transmuted films in 16:9 widescreen where available. Movies4Men 2 +1 launched on Sky 326 on Monday 27 October 2008.

The channel closed on 2 May 2012 ahead of the launch of Sony Movie Channel and Sony Movie Channel +1 the following day.[2]
