I am refining a thriller type screenplay and changing some things around. I was told before that it is too heavy and complicated on plot, so I decided to cut down. I was thinking of writing it so that some of the action sequences do not result in consequence. Like how when some James Bond movies for example, they will have action scenes for the sake of action scenes... By that I mean that nothing happens in the action scenes that cause any change. Everyone is alive and well at the end, and if someone does die, their death does not spur any changes in the story, and the dead body, will not cause anything to happen, if found. This way, the plot remains really loose and flexible and able to play around with. The disadvantage is that it is easier to become repetitive, but as long as the action scenes are exciting, can it still make for a good read? The movie Halloween (1978), for example, had a series or murders in, but none of the murders caused any consequences in the plot, and in the end, the killer is still in the same position he was at the start, as well as the MC, not having found out about any of the killings, until right near the end. What do you think of this approach? Does it come off as less interesting or can it just be as interesting as long as the action scenes have suspense in each individual scenario?
