It was a dream of mine to be in an action film.
Trace Lysette
Action films are great, but an action film that has characters that are compelling and a story that people can care about is something even better. We love to see action heroes that are vulnerable, that are sensitive, that are family people, that are accessible.
Steven Seagal

A woman director is not obliged to make a feminist film. She can make what she wants, a thriller, an action film, a comedy, or whatever, but hopefully, she will be informed by a gaze that is female.

Mrunal Thakur
You get dinged for wanting to do a comedy, then wanting to do a big-budget action film, and then wanting to do an indie. But you can’t let other people trying to label you get in the way of trying to do something artistically.
Nicolas Cage
I see the first ‘Bourne’ movie as really kind of a fulcrum in changing the modern action film, where things are really gritty and really character-driven. Think about how the entire Bond franchise was completely radicalized by Bourne.
Aisha Tyler
I always enjoy working with an international crew and director. But on the set of a Hollywood action film – now that’s a whole other world. The sheer grand scale of the way things are done over there makes me envious; it’s just so different from the way things are done in Japan.
Tadanobu Asano
The first one I did was an action film with Sammo Hung and George Lam, but I had the usual female role for that time: you know, damsel in distress, rescued by the hero.

Garth Brooks
There’s good art and there’s bad art. A lot of action films are bad art, but Paul Greengrass showed us with the Bourne films that it’s possible to make an action film with a political, social conscience.
Joe Wright
I think that the Western went away for a while because part of its function was that it used to be America’s action film.

I think there were some dubious feelings about it, that the first ‘Scarface’ would not be surpassed by the second ‘Scarface.’ We were wrong; it surpassed it. The acting talent, the cinematography – we were propelled into a real class action film. Long after I kick the bucket, it’ll be played.
Robert Loggia
