What makes a good action movie romance?

What makes two people (usually a man and a woman) compatible in an action movie? How do these moments get interspersed with action? What’s the difference between a Bond seduction and a Tron flirtation? Why is The Matrix my favorite romance series? Are there harmful stereotypes, is there empowerment of female characters? Does kink gloss over unhealthy habits? Much to discuss!

  • Interesting contrast could be Bond-Bourne too, as the recent Bonds are so similar to Bourne but Bond still does the whole romancey thing, where Bourne largely leaves it alone. – Marcus Dean 7 years ago
  • As in raiders of the lost ark, the best girlfriends have a what i call the Suzanne Phleshette rule, they must be cute, but not fragile. – Antonius865 7 years ago
  • Too many questions with very few points of connection. Almost nothing concrete to work with. – T. Palomino 2 years ago
