Action forms one of the most popular genres of films. The car chases, explosions, guns and fist fights always have a dazzling effect on viewers. The sheer fun of the hero winning against the villain is mind blowing.
Action is charming
The very charm of the genre lies in its dynamic script, high-tech special effects and, of course, larger-than-life heroes, who struggle against deadly situations, fight bad guys, get involved in disasters and either chase or are chased in all means of transport like motor cycles, cars, trucks, aircrafts, choppers, speed boats etc. The main motto of this hero is either to save the world or to get the woman he loves. The pulsating ambiance of such films makes the audience sit on the edge of their seats with their hearts pounding and toes tapping rapidly.
The action heroine
Who does not like to see a beautiful woman in action? The action heroine is another reason why the genre enjoys so much popularity. She is not a damsel in distress but a damsel who causes much of the distress. This sassy lass is beauty with brains. She may be sexy but lethal. She is someone who dresses not to seduce but to kill. However, one must not forget that she is witty and funny too.
The furious movement
The frantic movement that action movies involve has an enthralling effect on its audience. Its ‘blink and you miss’ sequences are truly engrossing. Its breath-taking pace and unexpected developments provide the much desired adrenalin rush. It is a genre that can actually involve the audience to its greatest extent. It is as if you are there with the protagonist, involved in all the fights, narrow escapes, fires and floods, finally emerging a winner with him.
The witty one-liners of the heroes and heroines may be funny but are full of puns which are mostly lethal.
