The action is a cinematic genre in which the main characters or heroes face a number of problems, which, without resorting to violence, cannot be solved. These films abound with violence in all its manifestations, insane chases, costly special effects and complex stunt tricks. The main characters often find themselves in seemingly desperate, in deadly situations from which they can get out alive through their professional training, resourcefulness, and determination. In the absolute majority of action movies good triumphs and villains die or behind bars. The genre of the action movie is easily mixed with any other genres, but it is best combined with adventure films and thrillers.
Despite the fact that the combat component was present in many films since the birth of the cinema, the action movies divided into a separately recognizable genre only in the 1970s. Progress in computer graphics has significantly reduced the cost of creating action movies, shooting in the past could not do without the participation of professional stunt men and costly scenery. However, the reaction to the excessively computer-intensive action movies was mixed. Created with its help, unrealistic scenes that are contrary to the laws of physics and common sense are often criticized, nevertheless, the list of such movies grows every year, which means that they do not cease to watch them because of this.
Separately it is worth mentioning the so-called Hong Kong action movies. Despite the development of computer graphics, even in our time, the best American movies require large investments in tricks and special effects, because in Hollywood this genre is considered a genre of large film studios. In Hong Kong, things are very different. Because of Asian culture and low budgets, good Hong Kong films usually focus on acrobatics, oriental martial arts and dangerous stunts performed by actors personally. Characteristic features of the American movies are large-scale explosions, automobile chases, as well as the use of computer graphics and backups.
