Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

The fact that action films are very exciting, is not always true. If I had known before, I wouldn't have watched this film because the actors who are in it, whose salaries are fairly high, are considered mediocre by some media. What's more, the special effects have been described as poor and monotonous. The characters' dialogues didn't have the appropriate register either and that's why the performance of some characters was considered confusing. They were famous Hollywood stars? That wasn't enough to hook the audience. The aforementioned stars will be hired in future productions and [they] will be getting on with learning from their past mistakes so that their next films are unbeatable.

Getting that for you now...
