MANN ‘BORED’ OF MODERN ACTION - ManlyMovie

MANN ‘BORED’ OF MODERN ACTION

Heat director Michael Mann is not a fan of modern action movies.  In a new interview with Total Film, Mann discusses the genre and where it’s at today.  He references choreography and how outrageous it has become in modern action movies.  Check out the selection from their website:

But while the big screen reigns supreme for Mann, he isn’t so impressed by modern-day action cinema. “I’m just bored by it. It’s not very interesting,” he says. “I mean, sometimes the choreography is so outrageous that it’s fascinating, and it is quite good. But generally, no. It’s just stale.”

Hmm, I wonder whatever type of action star or movie could give Mann such a loony idea that there’s possibly some shark-jumping going on…
