Top Five Influential Action MoviesNo comments yet
Action movies may be major motivation that attracts more audience to the cinema. Viewers can watch romantic comedies or dramas at home but it is less interesting for them to follow an action film as the same way because of only experiencing visual effects and surround sound on the big screen. Here are five most influential action movies that break the mold and reach greater heights.
“Seven Samurai”, a 1954 action movie co-written, edited and directed by Akira Kurosawa, pioneered the use of slow motion for dramatic effect, expertly choreographed battle scenes and the action tropes of stand-alone prologue. This film took place in Japan’s Warring States Period (around 1587/1588) and told a story of seven stubborn samurai that were hired to defend a village from one gang of bandits.
The best moment of this movie is when an inexperienced samurai Kikuchiyo killed the bandit leader before he died during the climactic battle
Though “Goldfinger” is the third spy film in “James Bond” series, it is considered as one of the most beloved and inspiring action films ever. Besides, this movie also made a cinematic history after regaining its production costs in record-setting time.
The best moment in this movie is when Bond asked Goldfinger “Do you expect me to talk?” and Goldfinger responded, “No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die.”
