Specs & The City: Action Scenes and ‘Die Hard’


Here’s a great article from Brad Johnson’s Specs & the City column that’s all about the action.

So many writer’s fail to understand the importance of depth in an action scene.  Die Hard got it.  To me, it’s the perfect action film.  The editing, revered.  And the writing, legendary.  Pick a scene and you can break down how many levels of development both in character and story are revealed through action.

Johnson “breaks” down the glass wall shootout.  Spot on.  Enjoy the article and be enlightened.
