Personal Quote:

The difference between an action film and an adventure film is that adventure is more exotic. There has to be some element beyond the usual car chase. There's a sense of history about an adventure film. Audiences should walk away saying, "Hey, I learned something here. I know more than I started with".

Trivia:

As of March 2016, had not issued any kind of statement regarding the Secret Admirer (1985) / Vasos De Papel (2016) plagiarism controversy.
