Yes he is. He's made some really entertaining film's over the years. I remember the thrill I got when I first watched True Romance as a 13 year old school boy...i say school boy because we watched it at school and it was our teacher who made us watch it! (this was the film which introudced me to the brilliant Gary Oldman!)

You can argue the majority of his film's are no brainer action fares, but they're still enjoyable fares. And his technical mastery of film and eye for detail (like his brother Ridley) cannot be questioned.

A sad loss indeed.

It's hard to imagine he made The Hunger and followed it up with Top Gun. The two films couldn't be more different, and you could argue that the mauling The Hunger got perhaps influenced his style from then on. For me, his kinetic style helped define the action movie (he was almost like a proto-Bay, but far superior), and while not everyone will like his films, his ability as a director was clear imo.

No question he was a good director, whether you liked the type of films he made is a different question all together.

RIP indeed.

Yeah he was a good director while his bro's a great director. Top Gun's his best movie and looking back at all the films of his I've seen I can honestly say I never got bored watching a Tony Scott movie. RIP.

All the people saying they never got bored watching his films must have missed The Taking of the Pelham 123.


I was quite harsh on Scott in this thread (Four years ago! Nicely done Shool.) and I am not going to sit back and venerate him now, esp as since then he has made Pelham 123. But on the other hand Unstoppable was enjoyable enough, and I do like True Romance and Last Boy Scout. But I still find the idea of a thread going on about how great he was a bit weird to be honest.

Yes, Pelham 123 wasn't very good. And Domino is one of the worst films I have seen.

Most of the commenters seem to be genuine aficionados of his work though - it's no different than when any other well-known directors die, perhaps just heightened by the extreme circumstances of his death.
