Action & Adventure

While sensitively drawn characters and introspective stories have their place, sometimes only the loud bangs and raucous fights of action and adventure films will satisfy. Whether it's the classic swashbuckler films or modern shoot 'em up movies, action and adventure is cinema as a glorious thrill-ride, the way many of us fell in love with it in the first place.
