Where’s My Sci-Fi Action?

Science Fiction seems to be a dying breed nowadays, doesn’t it? It seems like science fiction has gone the way of the western and it is being slowly pushed aside into obscurity. Thankfully, movies like Prometheus, Looper and Lock-Out are bringing the Sci-Fi Actioner back to theaters where they belong.

Science fiction and action can bring forth plenty of interesting ideas for stories and action sequences. Movies like The Matrix, Total Recall, Predator, Terminator and Aliens are some of the finest examples of this specific subgenre. They are imaginative and exciting as well as containing some amazing visuals. Nowadays, it seems to be slowly dying out and replaced with more basic sci-fi and space adventures and a lack of real out there science fiction.

2012 seems to be the year where the science fiction action film has returned with John Carter and Prometheus being the biggest movies of the year. Welcome back!

About the Author

My name is Omar and I love action movies. I grew up loving action films thanks in part to my father who would deliver a healthy dose of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Seagal in my movie diet. Ever since then, I continue to love the genre more and more and go along perfectly with my love for the horror genre. What other movie genre can specialize in giving you pure adrenaline and excitement in every turn?
