Action-Comedy Opening Sequence Research

The Other Guys

Starring: Will Ferrell Mark Wahlberg Derek Jeter
Directed: Adam McKay 
Written by: Adam McKay Chris Henchy
Released: 2010
Genre: Action Comedy Crime
Rating: 12A

The other guys jumps straight into the action for its opening scene beginning with a chase scene  

Genre conventions:
  •  Quick comedic dialogue
  • Over the top effects (e.g explosions)
  • Parody of action film e.g car chase and how the heroes (despite causing ridiculous amounts of damage) are praised and loved by there city

The things I will consider taking away from this are:
  • We will also parody a chase scene though ours will be on foot
  • We will also use snappy humorous dialogue
