Cause the chick in it is an actual MMA fighter. Repeat: Gina Carano is an actual MMA fighter. She’s not gonna do Waif-fu. She’s not a glamor girl they put in the movie and you’re supposed to believe she can kick ass - SHE CAN ACTUALLY KICK ASS.
I’m looking forward to a woman taking people down swiftly, brutually, and in a non balletic fashion. Apparently, she keeps the bruises she gets for most of the movie. You know, instead of perfect hair, make-up, and walking away without a scratch.
While Gina was doing a fight scene with Ewan McGregor, she didn’t duck as far as she was supposed to and he accidently punched her in the face. She’s a fucking fighter and been punched before but she said she knew how it hurt to hit someone bar knuckled - especially when you weren’t expecting to so she asked Ewan if his hand was okay. He was like “I just punched you in the FACE and you want to know if my HAND is okay?!?” and started laughing. “He tells that story all the time.” Gina said. It was no big deal to her.
That is how.she.rolls.
I have a new hero.
Seriously, this shit is amazing.
Well, at least the Winter Solstice blend is.
