The Hollywood Action and Adventure Film presents a comprehensive overview and analysis of the history, myriad themes, and critical approaches to the action and adventure genre in American cinema. The book explores the genre's amazing longevity, one that stretches from the silent spectacles to the iconic superheroes of 21st-century action films. Case studies reveal the genre's diverse roots - from westerns and war films, to crime and espionage movies - and show how action and adventure represent pervasive modes of movie-making and storytelling throughout American cinema's lengthy history.
By contrasting family movies such as The Adventures of Robin Hood with the breakneck-pacing of thrillers like The Bourne Identity, it illustrates just how extensive this popular American genre cinema can be. The New Wave passed first through youth fads in fashion, design and the novel before cresting at Cannes in where its effects were patently international. It is important to highlight that commercial success in Brazilian cinema as a whole is a controversial, relative value, and rarely comes in tandem with positive critique.
Most titles mentioned in this work have had fragile performances in terms of box office, and a number of films have circulated out of the mainstream film circuit. Suppia offers a brief overview of Brazilian science fiction cinema from the early apparitions of the genre to recent film production. Ginway and Suppia examine science fiction motifs in films by Brazilian director Jorge Furtado. Finally, Suppia provides a substantial survey of science fiction in Brazilian cinema, with a comprehensive critical history of feature-length Brazilian SF films, as well as a broad panorama of short Brazilian SF film.
