    More exactly an action film but it has many elements of adventure films, for example an outlaw fighting for justice.

    ---

    Action :

    * a film which generally depicts fights and action

    * generally involves a moral interplay between "good" and "bad" characters played out through violence or physical force

    Action movies are a film genre where action sequences, such as explosions, fights, shootouts, stunts, car chases or explosions either take precedence or, in finer examples of the genre, are used as a form of exposition and character development. The action typically involves individual efforts on the part of the hero. While action has long been an element of films, the "Action film" as a genre of its own began to develop in the 1970s. The genre is closely linked with the thriller and adventure film genres.

    Adventure :

    * a film which depicts a journey of some sort (Batman Begins was more adventure than The Dark Knight, since it shows the "journey" of Bruce from a young man to become Batman)

    * films involve danger, risk, and/or chance, often with a high degree of fantasy.

    The adventure film reached its peak of popularity in 1930s and 1940s Hollywood, when films such as Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood and The Mark of Zorro were regularly made with major stars, notably Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power, who were closely associated with the genre. At the same time, Saturday morning serials were often using many of the same thematic elements as high-budget adventure films.

    Popular concepts within adventure films:

    * An outlaw fighting for justice or battling a tyrant (e.g., Robin Hood, Zorro or Star Wars)

    * Pirates (e.g., Captain Blood or Pirates of the Caribbean)

    * Searching for a lost city or for hidden treasure (e.g., King Solomon's Mines or Indiana Jones)
