Movies that attempt to delve into the thoughts of characters and the motivations behind their actions, something books can be excellent at, tend to be boring movies. To tell a story well, it is sometimes necessary for there to be a lot of exposition. Books can do this. There is an unseen, unidentified narrator, when written in third-person. Movies do not do this well. You can only see what you see; unless you are told the meaning or future implications of what you are seeing, much is lost. Some movies employ a narrator, but most do not.
Action movies tend to have main characters who do not have a lot of depth. And what do action fans care? They want to see car chases, fist fights, gunfights, short, witty dialogue and other than that, no dialogue. And lots of destruction, things being blown up. Well, good books may sprinkle some of that in to spice things up, but no book that tries to be all of that makes for a good read - except maybe to young adolescent males.
