I’ve had it with slow-to-react protagonists wearing those dull, stunned looks. I’ve seen them in heavy drama after heavy drama…younger lead characters who go through all kinds of hell and all they seem to do is suffer and take it and look blown away. No more of these! If your life is threatened you don’t shut down, dammit…you snap to attention. Your senses and state of alertnesses become far more acute than usual, and all you have…all you can think of or improvise is irrefutably about what to do in order to avoid getting hit again or killed. Nobody but nobody just stands there with a bombed-out, numbed-out expression.
