But it’s not everyone who enjoys “real” fighting shows these days. Just like fake Instagrammers who act like they are real explorers and adventurers when they are actually queuing up for a photo op at some iconic site before going back for a dip in the hotel jacuzzi. But make no mistake, these folks have millions of fans. Like people who eat their fries dripping with chilli sauce, many audiences today lap up scene after scene replete with special effects.
So what if it’s all laughably unreal? People don’t seem to mind and the filmmakers might as well get their actors from Instagram.
Next up, fake horses and non-riders. Like martial arts, horse-riding is a skill that has to be learned and the actors nowadays don’t see the need to master this skill because audiences don’t appreciate such efforts anymore.
