Hanna Kicks Ass, As Do These Other Fine Ladies
Posted March 24, 2011 to photo album "Hanna Kicks Ass, As Do These Other Fine Ladies"
Hanna may be a teenage girl, but she’s also a take-no-prisoners assassin. The news is she’s not alone in popular culture.
A kick-ass female lead is perhaps not the first thing that comes to mind with the Arnold Schwartenegger famous “I’ll Be Back” features, The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991). Some feminists would however disagree. Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) as the mother of humanity’s savior, John Connor, has attracted a large following. Critic Katie Button extols her heroine: “For me, Sarah Connor is up there with Ellen Ripley as one of the most kick-ass females in film history, and like Ripley—she is a survivor, a veritable science-fiction legend and popular enough to visit again and again … Arnie might get all the best lines, but Sarah Connor is the heart and soul of the earlier Terminato movies.”
