A genre in which the main focus is on violence: shootouts, fights, chases, etc. Most action films illustrate the well-known thesis “good must come with fists.” Works of this genre often do not have a complex plot; the main character usually faces evil in its most obvious manifestation: terrorism, kidnapping, murder, corruption, injustice (from the point of view of the main character). Finding no other way out, the main character decides to resort to violence. As a result, negative characters are usually killed, less often arrested. The number of killed negative characters and their accomplices can reach tens and even hundreds. Most often, action films end with a happy ending.
