Action

The first films best action movies with a large action element were classic westerns. Masters like John Ford, who are now recognized for their high level of storytelling and directing, often come from westerns, but at that time, westerns were traditionally a neglected genre. As a result, some of the high-quality actions shown in westerns did not exert much influence on later films.

The legendary actor and martial artist Bruce Lee laid the foundation for the action movies we see today in Hollywood. Prior to his appearance, the action movies was not considered an important factor at all. If you look at the movies from this era now, even if you think of them as masterpieces, the immersion level is very low if you just look at the action. Under these circumstances, it is no wonder that Bruce Lee’s movie, which added cool action to an easy-to-understand story, was popular. Another peculiarity of his actions is that philosophy is combined with martial arts. Bruce Lee’s ideological aspect is also deeply engraved on those who watched movies such as Jeong Mu- mun or Dragon Fight, especially among teenagers. His detailed thoughts and films are summarized in the Bruce Lee section.

Actor Eddie Griffin talks about Bruce Lee. At that time, Bruce Lee’s appearance was close to a sensation, and many people were his fans.

Since then, martial arts movies and Japanese Chanbara action movies were introduced, and the quality of action movies was greatly improved as a lot of cool moves that matched the good action movies were introduced. Hong Kong actors such as Jackie Chan and Lee Yeon-geol made their way into Hollywood.

The movie that brought about the biggest change in action after that was the Jason Bourne movie series. Action films of the late 20th century, which focused only on cool movements, were extremely unrealistic due to the reaction. Here, the Jason Bourne series introduced realistic action such as Callie Arnis. We also use everyday tools as weapons and use Shaky Cam to get action-packed and realistic scenes. This realistic action has become a trend, and most of the films that follow have imitated it. However, as people are getting more and more tired from the pouring of action scenes that only shake the screen without sophisticated editing and motion, more and more good action movies are using static screen composition again. An example is the John Wick series.

Action is usually thought of as a device that enhances the quality of a best action movie. If you shoot a movie focusing only on action, the story will decrease andBecause there are a lot of things that happen. If a movie was well received even if it was filled with only action, recently there are Raid and Mad Max: Fury Road and these two films gained competitiveness because there were many action scenes full of action and high quality. In the case of Reid, the traditional martial art of Silat, which has been tried in other movies, was portrayed at the highest level, and Mad Max: Fury Road has reached the level that is currently considered as the evaluation standard for Car Chase. However, unlike Mad Max, which had good additional elements such as a character that showed feminism by way of example, Raid was only evaluated for action. Because of this, Raid’s overall rating is far lower than that of Mad Max. Those who think that even pure action can be the standard for a movie can see that it is very difficult to balance the completeness of a movie and action in a very few years.

In the East, it is known that fists/feet/swords are used, and in the West, guns are mainly used, but this is only a prejudice. It is true that the proportion of guns is overwhelming in the West, but movies with gun action are often made in Korea and Asia, and in foreign countries (especially in the United States), martial artists such as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Lee Yeon-Geol have been active, so it became well known. But a funny thing is that after writing in the West “gijipae gun or fistfights Indeed Bad Ass” While you think[1] In the East, the reaction was reversed, saying, “Oh, it’s a gun, it’s good to destroy all the guns” (…).

In the case of gun action, since it is a video, a lot of interest, discussion, and criticism or criticism (mainly related to gun testimonials) are rushing in depending on the type and usage of the gun. Of course, the AK-47 alone is enough. There are also some sites that focus on this.

In the case of martial arts action movies , there is nothing cliché to say that the main character gets hit and then breaks it down at the end. Also, the martial arts in the movies have a bit of a ‘show’ aspect, so it’s unreasonable to think that the techniques shown in the movies are always effective in practice. There are usually a lot of concepts of Asian martial artists vs Western villains, and there are also reactions that something is awkward when it comes to Western vs. Western. However, in the one-on-one duels between the protagonist and the villain, which are common in Hollywood blockbuster films, there are usually no martial arts and there are many fistfights that are purely based on physical strength, so Western vs. Western scenes are naturally produced.

Other actions include running around in a car (…) or escaping from a dangerous place. Combined with the above, the common point is that they use the body inexhaustible. It’s not an action movie because you fight, it’s an action movie because you use your body!

In the era of the Cold War, many films with strong propaganda characters are produced in combination with the ideology of each camp. A representative case is Rambo 2 (Rambo 1 is a masterpiece that deals in-depth with the aftereffects of the Vietnam War and PTSD), and this trend begins to change gradually in the late 1980s. Starting in 1987, there are movies that leave a big mark on Hollywood action movies ( Predator 1, Resell Weapon, Die Hard).) These works are no longer immersed in anti-communism and break away from the stereotype that the Soviet Union beats, and introduce new enemies, broadening the spectrum of action films.
