Long action-filled tracking shots, fast-paced car chases, an out-of-this-world crescendo of explosions, and hand-to-hand combat that would give any viewer whiplash — these are just some of the ingredients that make the action genre truly an exciting experience, whether you’re inside of a movie theater, or in the comfort of your own home.
When action sequences do their job, they can take you out of your everyday life and plop you right into the thick of the scene. These action sequences accomplish just that, with each scene being more exciting than the last.
