For some, they look like petulant little films made without a real narrative. However, for aficionados, action films have everything in them — activity (of course), experience, sensuality, explosions, fast cars, and battle sequences.
1 thing that’s somewhat interesting about action film fans is how true fans attempt to understand as many details as they can about their favorite films so much as to become walking encyclopedias of knowledge & points of reference match for your regional restaurant’s trivia night. But much the same way that life works, you can not know everything, and that is where this specific group of facts shows its value!
1. Silence of the Lambs – Many people today have a tendency to criticize big Hollywood action movies by imagining they have nothing to offer in actual value in regards to an actual story worth checking out. Even though some might find this picture more suspenseful, it will keep you on the edge of your chair.
2. The Fast and the Furious – Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster, didn’t have drivers licenses or even licenses before creation of the movie. While this might seem somewhat strange, many actors and actresses concentrate their attention on their craft from a young age, sometimes bypassing landmarks in this way.
3. Jaws – Nearly a fourth of the film was filmed by the surface of the water level. This special perspective is vital to the movie’s terror as audiences could feel as if they were treading water or the least to be close”Bruce”, the title given to the mechanical shark used during filming. The fact that only about 25 percent of the film was taken this way is awesome when you consider that most of the more memorable sequences of this movie are based from the water.
4. Gone with the Wind – Though often considered a historical drama or even (strangely enough) as a romantic film,’Gone’ is celebrated for its gigantic undertaking & sweeping look at a bygone age over the course of several generations. While the film tends to get beautiful vision of farm life, it is the ferocious action sequences & suspenseful scenes that take your breath away. This movie was the first colour film to win an Oscar for Best Picture.
5. X-Men – Although they give off an air of elegance and class, actors Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan had really never played a game of chess in their own lives. While not the most gritty action film tidbit, it is important to mention only because far too many film patrons are unwilling to suspend all disbelief. It is all about the information.
