Yes, pure spectacle can be amazing, and subtle character development isn’t necessary. Hell, Bay himself demonstrated this with „The Rock.“ But so many blockbusters‘ problem isn’t about their action. It’s about how goddamned dumb they are. Even the thinnest plot should be interesting and at least MOSTLY make sense. Those things make the action bits even more exciting when we give a shit about what/why/who is fighting.
