The Middle

The middle of a film usually tells the story through the plot and amplifies it before the acceleration and resolution of the action in the end.

The middle can also be called the second act of a three-act film. The second act usually lasts about 2/4 of the duration of the entire film. Thus the middle of a two-hour film lasts about an hour.

Cf. beginning - middle - end
