Contemporary Action Cinema


Responding to the era of the sequel, the multi-media franchise, and the War on Terror, the US action film has altered dramatically. This textbook covers the changes and highlights the attributes of the genre in its current state, examining the influences of major events such as 9/11 and the War on Terror, British and European connections, as well as the role of homosexuality, gender, the body, and ethnicity on the genre.
