Many are drawn to film by the title, others such as myself have been drawn to a film irregardless of the title only because it was directed by Tony Scott.
Tony Scott, pulled you into his films, you sit look at that big screen, the cinematic beauty, and your drawn in and never let go. That was a Tony Scott film. He also made people, actors, such as Tom Cruise in Top Gun, and what can I say about his work with the great Denzel Washington, Crimson Tide and my personal favorite Man On Fire.
At 68, Tony Scott leaped to his death action all the way to the end for one of the most influential directors in the last 25 years.
The short but to the point was a comment by another director Ron Howard.
No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day

Tony Scott valued action over words, and so he was not a favorite of the critic’s, but then what real serious film-makers gives a damn about film-critic’s. The key word in making a film is “Moving Picture”, and that is what Tony Scott delivered less words and more action. Steve McQueen had a rule, less said is better, when words are used make good use of them and effective, that is a good script. As Ron Howard put’s it. No more Tony Scott.
