‘Action’ Screenplays

One of the ‘Primary Genres.’

There are 13 ‘Primary Genres’ we’re all familiar with. Here’s one of them, explained.

Movies in the action genre are fast-paced and include a lot of action like fight scenes, chase scenes, and slow-motion shots. They can feature superheroes, martial arts, or exciting stunts. These high-octane films are more about the execution of the plot rather than the plot itself.


Action movies are thrilling to watch and leave audience members on the edge of their seats. Cop movies, disaster films, and some spy films fall under the action category. James Cameron’s 1994 film True Lies about an American spy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is an example of the genre.
