Default Re: Are Old School Action Movies Dead?

Like you mentioned Hunter there was a certain spark captured that never quite came back. I do feel some directors do their earnest to try and recapture or creating moments like that but it's definitely a dime a dozen.

Just take a look at Predator. That to me has one of the best openings ever. The first 10 minutes are incredible. Just in the first few meetings you already have a classic interaction between Dillon and Dutch at the bar. The camera work is perfect and the editing is seamless.

Timeless in every sense of the word.
