Film Reviews - Action

Photobucket

Action Film Definition from Wikipedia: Action film is a film genre where one or more heroes thrust into a series of challenges that require physical feats, extended fights and frenetic chases. Story and character development are generally secondary to explosions, fist fights, gunplay and car chases.

Action movies! Who doesn't love them with their fast pace, plot driven and explosions? I'm a fan of actually hand to hand combat and physical prowess over guns and devices myself, but there are so many films out there that there should be something for everyone.

Action Films as a Genre was the first ever genre I take on on the Movie Moxie Podcast which turned into an epic 33-episode genre exploration! But turn back the close to Episode 6 where it all started... with explosions. You need the explosions.
