About the Author

www.ActionFlickChick.com
Katrina Hill is first and foremost a lover of all things action. Since a young age she has been in love with the action genre, and has been influenced by action stars both new and old, from Stallone and Schwarzeneggar to Statham and Butler, and even independent action stars such as Tony Jaa.

Her website, ActionFlickChick.com, is a glorious salute to her action passion. G4TV named her their official Next Woman of the Web, an honor that goes to the most appealing lady of the gaming and geek online universe. Hill, who also writes for MTV.com., ranks No. 13 on Twitter's list of "100 Most Powerful Women on Twitter." Klout, which measures social media influence based on ability to drive action on sites like Facebook and Twitter, has added her to their Klout Stars.

A book about action movies, how can you say no? That's right, you can't. With reviews and commentary on over 100 action movies from the classics to present, a must have for movie fans! Not to mention it even comes with a free DVD!

Format: Paperback
Katrina Hill could write about city management and make it sound fun. Fortunately she saves her insight and wit for Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, Arnold, Jackie Chan, Kurt Russell and the rest of the Action Movie clan. Hill's writing is sometimes flip, sometimes sassy, sometimes over the top, but always fun. She's a dynamo. You could hook a generator to her copy and have enough electricity to power the eastern seaboard. Hill selects and reviews 100 movies including Classics (The Magnificent Seven, Dirty Harry, The Wild Bunch, etc) Martial Arts (Enter The Dragon, Ninja Assassin, etc), Superhero and Video Game Action Films (The Dark Knight, Kick-Ass, Blade, etc) and everything in between. Along the way she does profiles of not only the leading men of action movies, but the leading women (Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, etc). She even provides a run down of great onscreen fights between famous actors (Jet Li v. Jason Statham, etc). The book also looks great. The design is fresh and the images pack a lot of punch (ka-POW). The book isn't definitive and you may quibble with some of the movies selected or neglected, but it is a fantastically fun romp from a woman who knows her stuff. Highly recommend.

The book is packed full of information on cinema's greatest action flicks of all time. Katrina Hill did an amazing job of covering the genre, and reminding us why we love things that go "BOOM!"
