Happy BADASS Women Day #3! Today I want to share one of my favorite fight scenes EVER. It’s the stair scene from ATOMIC BLONDE, and Charlize Theron absolutely kicks ass! If you haven’t seen this movie yet and love strong, kickass women characters, what are you waiting for?
And in case you’re wondering, no, I don’t think that women are only badass when they’re fighting a boatload of bad guys–but I absolutely LOVE the choreography in this scene. Theron’s character, Lorraine, takes a LOT of hits but keeps on fighting. To me, this represents badassery at its most vital–literally getting knocked down and then pulling yourself back up. It takes a lot of stamina to be a badass 🙂
Content Warning: the following scene depicts a brutal, violent fight, so if you’re not a fan, I’d recommend you don’t watch.
Thanks for stopping by BADASS Women Week! Come back tomorrow when another badass author, Kristi Belcamino, stops by to giveaway a signed paperback (US) or eBook (international) of her new thriller, ONE-EYED JACK!
