When will we see another

— Posted by Rodney

When will we see another “Smart” action film?
My friend Trevor and I were watching David Letterman tonight when a trailer for the new film S.W.A.T came on. Trevor rolled his eyes and said “Oh that is going to suck”. Jumping to the films defense I boldly claimed that “Oh give it a break. It’s could be a fun dumb action film”. This raised the question: Why are almost ALL action films completely brainless? Why is it assumed that if a film is going to have good action, it can’t also have a decent story at the same time? The Matrix had both. The Die Hard 1 and 3 had both. Terminator 2 had both. Can you think of any others?
