Hi guys,
Quick question. What sceenplays would you say have the best action scenes? To be more precise, what writers wrote really great and well written action scenes in their scripts; action scenes that immediately play in your head as they would on screen. Every suggestion or recommendation is welcome. Thanks

Chris Mcquarrie said something about basing the action scenes in M:I movies on Buster Keaton comedy bits.

Shane Black said good action is about reversal. Guy pulls a parachute cord - the chute doesn't open. Guy shoots a gun - no bullets. Guy punches a dude in the jaw - Dude's jaw is made of metal.

Economical wording always helps.
