I love a good action movie, and more than just for the adrenaline rush.
I use action movies as guides to choreograph action scenes in my books. For example, ARROW.
Okay, backtrack a minute … ARROW is one of those shows I really didn’t like when I started watching it, but I was compelled to watch. It’s really a rather simple show on the surface — billionaire presumed dead returns home after five years a changed man. He becomes a vigilante to avenge his father’s murder and rescue his city from the clutches of evil. It’s a quasi-super hero show, but the super-hero is all human (though possibly genetically enhanced.)
But it started slow, the characters weren’t all that great, and there was a kind of one-sidedness to each show.
Yet … I watched because of the action scenes.
