...I mean, I hate to play the "Ain't It Cool poster who hates all that is Kevin Smith" role here, but I really don't think he'd manage it... it's just not Kevin. And as for the action scenes in Dogma and J&SBSB... well, they were certainly passable, but really, they were hardly ground-breaking in camera work or different from any other action sequences we've all seen before. Sorry for sounding like an asshole... I love Kevin's work, I really do, and I think he writes a mean comic book... I just don't see him as an action movie guy. Leave that kinda stuff for Joel Schumacher and the rest of 'em.
: :no offense to the guy, but I think that he'd make a terrible action movie if he ever tried).
: I don't think that's true. I can see why you'd think that, but so far Kev hasn;t had a whole lot of what you'd call Action in his movies...the action there has been in large part was comic relief Igunfights in J&SBSB)or played down to better fit the rest of the movie (End sequence of Dogma). I think if he set out to make an action movie, especially based on a Comic, he'd do a hell of a job.
: A porno, on the other hand? Nope. A western? Huh-uh. But action? Ican see it.
