Action movies are most popular categories for Hollywood studios. Though, such movies are expensive to make but if made well they do guarantee a lot of money at box office. So, what I am fascinated by is that what does reviews of best action movies have common in them i.e. what is similar in good action movies that result in them making a lot of money? Let’s discuss!!
As the category “action movies” suggest, best action movies are the ones which have the good element of action in it. However, this does not mean that you make some funky car chase scenes or use helicopter to rescue the heroine or gun battles between gangs. Audiences nowadays are much m ore choosier than that.
The category of best action movies is not new, reviews of actions movies suggest that these movies were in demand since 70’s and audiences have pretty much seen everything in the old action movies that we have just mentioned above. What audience wants in a best action movie is something new, or at least a new concept or idea that takes the action to next level and sets even higher standards for action movies to come. In a summary, action in action movies has to be so well integrated and thought of that it glues audiences to their seat.
However, another factor that is common in reviews of best action movies is that all the good movies have a strong character of hero. Audiences want to see a hero, with whom they can connect, looking at whom they can feel like they want to become like that hero or if not want to at least think of becoming like that hero. The character of the hero in almost all the best action movies has the right mix of guts, sensibility and courage.
So, you have a good action and a good character for the hero, but you may still not be able to make the best action movies, WHY? Well, best action movies also require a strong character of villain if not stronger than the hero it should not be less also. In some action movies villains are considered to be more important than the hero himself. In action movies, the best character of the villains is the one which is portrayed as the ordinary people who have some problems. Villains are not just any robot who just wants to destroy this universe.
Although you may find a lot many other things common in terms of reviews of best action movies, I believe that the above mentioned three are of utmost important. So next time when you go out and watch your favorite action movie try and think about these points we invariably rate movies based on the points mentioned above. Also, do not worry if you have missed some of the greatest all time best action movies go to your nearest DVD rental store take a membership and just start watching these movies.
