Welcome to our Action and Adventure movies page where, if you like to watch stuff be blown up or someone struggle his way back into civilization after having been thrown into some faraway jungle, you'll feel right at home!

In a world filled with exciting and adventurous people film makers are realizing that entertaining people in this fashion takes a lot more work than it used to. Why? because we want to see more! that is just the plain fact, more is best and I think you'll agree that hardly any explosion is big and loud enough or stunt dangerous enough, or even heroes heroic enough....


But for the most part Hollywood does a good job in this genre, they seem to get it as far as the cool stuff goes; as for the plot, that's where most of the trouble at the box office lies.

action and adventure action and adventure

Most people, as you know, live vicariously the lives of the characters in these movies for a couple of hours.

One day you may be a car racer ( as in 'The Fast and the Furious') and the other you may end up as the the president of the United States himself (through Harrison Ford in Air Force One).

So, what makes a good action and adventure movie? Let's define the two genres first, Action and Adventure movies are in most cases a cross over of each other.

They also include many other genres such as thrillers, crime, war, westerns, sci-fi, among others. But if we are going to purely define the them both it would sound something like this,

A film that has a continuous high level of energy, complicated stunts and other activities of such nature, chases, battles, disasters of all natures, explosions, historical figures, explorations, conquests, etc; and don't forget our heroes again!

action and adventure Action and Adventure Films

The only difference between the two is that in action movies the main focus is on the explosions, stunts, etc. while in adventure movies the focus is on the set itself as well as the circumstances around it such as you would find in explorations, travels, and so on.

Second. The plot.

In order for any movie to be good and lasting, it has to have a great plot; something that most people will like, relate to or feel familiar with. The main character or characters have to possess certain traits or values clearly portrayed.

Interested in knowing what the it factor in a plot is??? We spell it out throughout our whole web page, while not specifically mentioned one can get the idea quite easily after reading some of our reviews...
