While discussing the Plane rescue scene from Superman Returns, it got me thinking about what are the greatest action sequences in film. What is needed to make a great action sequence? Real powerhouse adrenaline or a more subtle emotional action moment? What action sequences work best for Timobi?... I usually find myself needing to care at least a little about what's happening on screen for me to buy the action but there are some exceptions that just really wowed me too. I could list MANY great ones that really work for me and that are unforgettable...but won't. I want you to do that! As you make your list, explain why this works for you. For starters, my list would include: 1. Plane Rescue in Superman Returns...The way it was filmed, the wings breaking apart, plane spinning out of control...and Superman arrives!In addition, the moments inside the plane showing the passengers distress; especially Lois were quite effective. When she sees Supe flying by her window, I got goose bumps. When Superman lands the plane inside the stadium, crowd cheering, music etc...all make for one of my favorite cinema moments in recent years. 2. Train station in The Untouchables ....Brian De Palma's masterful direction here. Normally, slow motion stuff can get in the way but it works wonders here. The buggy that is slowly going down the stairs, Garcia tossing the gun etc...again the music...you get the idea! One of the coolest moments. Give it some thought and share with us the action moments or sequences that really impacted you.
