Genre: The action genre is a class of creative works characterized by a more emphasis on exciting action sequences than on character development or story-telling. (Wikipedia)
Like: What nice about action is it keeps your attention in a movie. If a movie is two hours plus I would lie to stay awake for that whole time.
Dislike: To much action can lead to horrible story telling. If you entire film is three 30 minute,action sequence then where's the story.
