  4. 4. Film fan 5.4 Reading and writing Unit5 1 Match the film posters to the reviews. a ____________ Action in the air and on the waves — this film has it all. The acting isn’t great, and Point Break perhaps it’s all a little unrealistic, but it’s non-stop action from start to finish. It’s also good to see these two actors together — what a team! If you like surfing, sky-diving and other wild sports — and you like a good detective story too — this is a film you must see! ✩✩✩✩ b ____________ is like Die Hard but filmed on a mountain … All the familiar characteristics are there — the one-liners, the international baddies, big shoot-outs, etc. The tension never reaches the levels of Die Hard, but it’s still enjoyable, if you like this sort of thing. And if you get bored by the same old stuff, you can always look at the magnificent scenery! ✩✩✩ c ____________ Action, culture and romance in one film — a legendary warrior retires, but comes back into action to fight against his old enemy. Based on oriental martial arts, the incredible fight sequences are a brilliant mix of dances with swords and video games … Amazing! ✩✩✩✩✩ d ____________ If you like your action films to be about sports, this movie might be one for you! All-American heroes do battle on the football field (that’s American football, so no Beckhams here!) while the bosses try to make as much money as possible. I think you need to know something about the sport to enjoy this film, but it’s quite entertaining anyway. ✩✩✩ 2 Match these short descriptions to the films. a Climbing and criminals _____________ Cliffhanger b Big business and beating the other team _____________ c Chinese history and modern technology _____________ d Wind, water and police pursuit _____________ 3 Write true (T) or false (F). a David Beckham is in a film about American football. ____F b The acting in the film about surfing is good. ____ c The film about climbing has lots of beautiful scenery. ____ d The oriental film has dancers in it. ____ © Richmond Publishing, 2004 PHOTOCOPIABLE 25
