If you write, read Save The Cat

Action films are very structure-based, so they require solid construction to guide you through the dramatic turns that can keep the audience glued to their seats in between action sets. Save The Cat is just right for the job. You might get six pages through it before your idea is magically re-ignited, which makes this a great re-read whenever you’re stumped, but try to at least get through the life-changing “beat sheet” section before going back to your script.
