Book Description

"This is a timely and pertinent contribution to the study of action cinema. Drawing insights from human geographers, sociologists and philosophers as well as film theorists, Jones offers a stimulating account of the ways the action sequence speaks to our interactions with the built environment and to our contemporary spatial imagination." -- Lisa Purse, University of Reading, UK



This book applies the discourse of the so-called ‘spatial turn’ to popular contemporary cinema, in particular the action sequences of twenty-first century Hollywood productions.
