Claude: Oh no, this isn’t another action movie, is it?

Jean: Of course not. I know you like thrillers and this is a thriller.

Claude: This definitely seems like a brainless action movie to me. That’s the second fight scene and we’re only 15 minutes into the film.

Jean: It’s a thriller that’s supposed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Of course it’ll have some fight scenes.

Claude: And car chases? We’ve had three of those already, too.

Jean: Like any good thriller, it has a hero in a life-threatening situation and an evil villain in hot pursuit.

Claude: That sounds like a run-of-the-mill action movie to me. This movie is full of visual effects and stunts. It’s all about theadrenaline-rush. It’s not what I would call a psychological thriller.

Jean: Maybe it straddles the line between an action film and a thriller, but it’s good, isn’t it?

Claude: I’ll let you know once this ultra-violent fight scene is over.
