I was just watching The Temple of Doom
(Indiana Jones) the other day, and it got me thinking about the pairing of females with males in action movies.
Then it made me think about First Blood Part II
. I suppose pairing Rambo with Co Bao, was supposed to make him more "human" and female friendly?
Frankly I usually find it annoying, becuase all they have the girls do is get caught, screwing the plan up and scream for awhile. Can they not think of anything original? Pirates of the Caribbean
Now, I am glad Magnum Force
didn't fall into that trap and make the renegade police officers kidnap Sunny and have Harry come rescue her. That would have definitely made the movie bad.
