I looked at a number of Action Thriller films in order to get ideas on what we could include in our action thriller opening sequence.

Below shows some examples of action thriller films made within different years
- I chose all these films at random. By re-searching the best action thrillers, these are the films that came up. By looking at all the films below, I found that they all shared some similarities as they all contain a lot of violents and they all contain a large amount of weapons such as guns and explosive and large elaborate set pieces for the action to take place. Also, the film contains a series of fast pace actions which keeps the audience engage wanting to continue watching to find out what happens and what the characters find out along the way.
