What action movies tell us about the repetitiveness of life
Over the past year I have watched more action movies than I had ever cared to and I couldn’t help but notice that each one is exactly the same. Sure, the plot might be altered just slightly but they follow an identical formula in an identical pattern: brief exposition – initial complication – bland nothingness – punching – running – car chase – running – punching – final monologue – more punching – and everything’s fine. If we can sit through this repetitiveness over and over again then are we not complacent with repetitiveness in our lives?
