Action and Adventure Films
If it’s good enough for the governor of California it should be good enough for us. How many people would have predicted when he was busy beating people up on the big screen that politics was in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s future? We may not have known about his future, but we sure did enjoy watching those movies. And we enjoy plenty of other action and adventure films as well. Some of the most popular films every year come from this genre. Bruce Willis entertained us in the Die Hard films (at least the first one) as a wisecracking police officer caught in the middle of a terrorist plot. Matt Damon has kept us busy with the dizzying array of chase sequences and fights to the death in the "Bourne" movies. Going back a bit Clint Eastwood gave us plenty of violence and his classic deadpan delivery in the "Dirty Harry" movies. The list goes on and on. Sylvester Stallone, Steven Seagal, and Wesley Snipes are among the actors who have made a career out of the action and adventure genre.
