"I still like the run and gun action movies and how truly dangerous it can be to make these films."
"I think what's dangerous about being an actor who does action movies is you think, 'Well, I can totally handle myself now.' But if my opponent didn't know the other half of the routine, I don't know how well I'd do."
"I like action movies, even though I think action movies are kind of derided now. But there is something extraordinary about action movies, which is absolutely linked to the invention of cinema and what cinema is and why we love it."
"I tend to think of action movies as exuberant morality plays in which good triumphs over evil."
"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."
"'A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints' was the first real actor-actor part I did, and I hope I to do more. Action movies are fun, but I'd be happy not to do them if there are better roles."
"A lot of action movies today seem to have scenes that just lead up to the action."
"We can now have action movies with two stars where one might be African American and one might be Asian American. One of them doesn't have to be white, and the other one doesn't have to be the ethnic sidekick. We're way over that. And I think it's happening in society, too."
"Bond is the longest-running franchise ever and there's a reason for that: they are action movies but they are also touched by current events without being political or too serious."
"Hollywood is throwing action movies at me."
