- Hey all, wuz up? I am new to this club. I love
action movies (like I would be here if I didn't!!!), and
I am right now doing a report on action movies for
a class. If you want to help me answer this
question: What is your favorite action movie(s), and tell
me what makes them your favorite. Thanks, and I hope
to hear from you soon!!! <br>Adrienne
- Wow! Activity! <br>Anyway to answer your question
... two of my favorites, well off the top of my head
anyway, are John Woo's "The Keller" and the original "Die
Hard." These two films, I guess while both falling under
the blanket term of "action movies" go for different
effects. <br>The reason that I initially liked "The
Killer" was almost purely visceral. John Woo's
"claim-to-fame" is the so-called "ballet of blood," and that is
what I loved about "The Killer." I loved the sheer
overkill and jaw-drop factor of watching guys jump around
in slow motion with pistols in each fist, shooting
each other far more than necessary. This was also, I
guess, why I enjoyed Face-Off.
- Oops, didn't finish my last post.<br>Anyway, then
you have the suspense-action movies like Die-Hard
that usually place the heroes inside some sort of
claustrophobic situation that they must find a way out of
(usually with some sort of time limit involved like).
Speed, Under Seige, and Air Force One come to mind. But
the first one of these that I can remember, and I
guess probably started the trend was the original Die
Hard. I can't really explain why it is that I enjoyed
this movie except to say that a good movie of this
type is supposed to manipulate you. It's supposed to
have you emotionally involved, on the edge of your
seat, guessing what's going to happen next and calling
for the bad guy's head. And whenever I watch this
particular movie, it manipulates me over and over again.
- Hi everyone! I just joined the club. My favorite kind of movies is of corse ACTION MOVIES!!!!!!. I love J.Chan movies and VanDamme movies the best. Whats your favorite?
- Has anyone here seen the Omega Code movie? There
is a great trailer at theomegacode.com. It has great
effects and end times plot. Video release is scheduled
for March 28th. Let me know what you think.
- FOr anyone interested, the Omega Code is out on
video. My brother has seen it at kmart and walmart, but
I'm sure that there are a complete list of stores at
their website: theomegacode.com.<br><br>Thanks
- This is a fairly good movie. Alot better than most end of time movies. The acting is fairly good considering the limited budget. I would give this movie a 7/10.
