How do you feel about fight scenes in movies/television?

Personally, fight scenes bore me with few exceptions. I am curious to know if anyone else feels the same and if opinions differ based on gender or age.

Whether flying fists or a shoot-out or whatever, with very few exceptions, I find myself zoning out into youíve-seen-one-youíve-seen-them-all la-la-land. Meaning no disrespect to the talent and skill of those who choreograph and perform these scenes, I cannot summon the attention and feelings of suspense/excitement fights are supposed to generate. I fully understand such scenes are often necessary, but any more, when one surfaces, I feel only impatience because it takes storytelling time away from what Iíd rather be watching, typically character moments.

Iíve never seen this topic discussed before so wondering what others on Torn feel.

Thank you for all who reply. Smile
