About the Author
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.

ACTION MOVIE FREAK has a lot going for it. Action movies, just about everyone's guilty pleasure, are a box-office staple and rake in ever-increasing profits at the box office. Hill clearly loves those bone-crushing, guns-blazing flicks; the book, a 2012 Krause Publications release, is as much a celebration as an examination of the genre. Hill's wide-ranging knowledge of the subject is matched by an engaging, witty sense of humor. ACTION MOVIE FREAK is as funny as it is informative. And the book is jam-packed with hundreds of full-color photographs, movie posters, etc.
So, go ahead, pick up a copy and make your day. Recommended.
Oh, and if that's not enough to grab your attention, you actually get a DVD movie included with the book, action movie cheesefest The Impossible Kid!
Anyway- don't wait to pick up this book to add to your collection... I hope that the other two books published by Krause in this series ("Sci-Fi Freaks" and "Horror Freaks") are just as well done.
