Action Breakdown #5: Violence

If there is one thing that we love in our action movies more than explosions is violence. Bodily harm. Gore. Gunshot wounds. Dismemberments and just overall death and destruction. Aside from horror movies, action movies tend to...

Action Breakdown #6: Love Interests

You know them and you love them. The love interest. The womanly touch that every action movie has. The one to give that other kind of “action”. The lady that needs rescuing or maybe does some of the rescuing. Every ...

Action Breakdown #7: Action Movie Scores

Action movies can be a very visual experience, but it can be quite the audio experience as well. As much as action scenes can help create excitement and tension, action movies need a great score to accompany them to help build ...

Action Breakdown #8: Cop Buddies

We know them. We love them and tolerate them at the same time. The yin to the yang. The peanut butter to the jelly. The Powell to his McClane. The action buddy. The duo who will stop at nothing to stop the bad guy from getting ...

Action Breakdown #9: The One-Liner

We all say them at work or around friends. We even say it to ourselves when the time asks for them. One of the biggest staples of an action movie and almost Shakespearean in its delivery. The one liner. Everyone gets one even v...

Action Breakdown #12: Sad/Upsetting Moments

We mostly know action movies as wild and fun rides. A good hour and a half to two hours of explosions, one liners, and gunfire. It’s a genre that depends on entertainment and having a good time. However, there are scenes ...

Action Breakdown #13: Action Stuntmen

Action Breakdown #14: Action Movie Kids

It seems like action movies need a few things in order to be made. A badass action lead, an evil villain, lots of explosions, and a kid. One of these things is not like the other, doesn’t it? Well, like them or hate them,...
