Can action scenes espouse nonviolence?

I like action films, in a way. I don’t love gore, but some action
films really are a conversation about dance–more than they are a
conversation about violence? In watching this Buffy/Edward mashup I
really enjoy how she just turns away from all his creepy stalker-love
moves. Something about that seems…Zen to me? Not being pulled into a
conversation of mounting desire, but instead holding to the imperative
to diffuse…a “cold shower” as it were. What thinks thee?
