Harrison Ford: Modern Action Flicks Have No Soul





‘Cowboys & Aliens’ star Harrison Ford: Most special-effects films are soulless LATimes
“I think what a lot of action movies lose these days, especially the ones that deal with fantasy, is you stop caring at some point because you’ve lost human scale,” Ford said. “With the CGI, suddenly there’s a thousand enemies instead of six – the army goes off into the horizon. You don’t need that. The audience loses its relationship with the threat on the screen. That’s something that’s consistently happening and it makes these movies like video games and that’s a soulless enterprise. It’s all kinetics without emotion. I don’t have time for that.”

Great quote! And there's something to it too.

Have you seen "Monsters"? It's low budget, so they didn't have the money to show us lots of giant monsters, just a couple of quick shots. It FORCED them to make the story about the characters, and made the movie riveting.
