What makes a good opening scene?

A good opening scene should be entertaining, interesting and want the audience waiting in excitement for more. An opening scene should grab the audiences attention, the opening scene should give the audience the genre of the film or hint. The location should be identified for the audience to know where the place is. The opening scene could give us one of the story lines of the movie to keep the viewers watching and to give the audience a taster of the narrative. The opening scene should include many different techniques, from catchy music to fast paced editing and in my opinion the most important element to a good opening scene is the element of suspense. All these key points will significantly improve an opening scene to a high degree.
