Midweek Mouth-off: End of the action hero?

1 min read


Here’s your question for today: Do you think that we have passed the era of the action hero? Are we now living after a time when people would flock to a movie simply because it starred a genre icon like Sly or Arnie (whose recent collaboration, Escape Plan, seriously underperformed at the box office)? Who, apart from Jason Statham – who sticks to ass-kicking fare – can really claim the title of Action Hero for the 21st Century?
