Moviecrickets action fanatic looks at the state of the action genre in modern day and how it compares to the triving comic book movie trend.
I dont think Acion hero's are entirely dead, its just that there are no good action films which focus on the badass protagonist, rather than the flashy effects of CGI. Jason Statham, Gerard Butler, Michael J White and to a lesser extent Sam Worthington, are about the closest guys we have, but ultimately have NOTHING on Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Sly Stallone and Arnie.
