I have always really loved films, and as a GWSS minor, I love seeing films with strong female characters. Naturally, I was really thrilled to see advertisements for a new action movie by the same male director as 300. However, after watching the trailer I was a bit disappointed to se what I should have been expecting: girls dressed in fetish attire wielding knives and guns. It seems like if a movie is going to feature a female protagonist, it must portray women in a hypersexual manner. The main question to be asked is, is this movie using the womens' sexuality as a way to empower them or is it just using their sexuality to bring in a larger audience?
