GIRL POWER! Film & Television Rec: "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation"

Updated: May 25



"MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION"


“ Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF. ” + Rating: PG-13 Starring: Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris Country: United States PARAMOUNT PICTURES [2015] action / adventure / secret agents / thriller

AUTHOR'S NOTES :


As this isn't a franchise that is known for being 'feminist', I'd like summarize why this movie—unlike ALL of its predecessors—is bursting with GIRL POWER! ( Hopefully without too many spoilers. ^^;; )


Though often scantily clad, and does take her top off just once, the female protagonist...


  • ...makes SIGNIFICANT contributions in furthering the plot.

  • ...is NOT a damsel in distress ( rescues the male protagonist almost as often as he rescues her, maybe more so ).

  • ...SURVIVES the film ( doesn’t die for 'man pain' ).

  • ...NO SEX SCENE ( Hell, not even a kiss! Don't get me wrong, there were a LOT of heavy romantic implications, but she was not overtly a love interest. )

  • ...Climatic fight scene was with a MALE VILLAIN and she WON in NO uncertain terms!


This last one blew my mind. I can’t even remember ever seeing a female protagonist entering into combat with anyone who WASN'T a female villain—Like, ever.—especially for their climatic battle scene. <3
