Girl fight! Watch two babes brawl in this clip from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Dec. 1, 2011by:

Who doesn't love a good girl fight? Sure, we all do, and while we'll get our fair share of Ethan Hunt action in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, director Brad Bird made sure to slip in a nasty little girl fight.

Now this is not slapping and hair-pulling like "Dynasty" or something. Nor is it a girl that you don't believe could actually be kicking ass like COLOMBIANA. This is two women, who happen to be beautiful, kicking the shit out of each other. I gotta admit, it was nice to see Paula Patton straight punching the other girl in the face. Girls can be tough too so let's not pretend they have to do girly shit in a fight. They can kick some ass with the best of em.

Check out the clip below and while we're talking GHOST PROTOCOL, this movie looks pretty awesome so far, right?

This one I have to comment on

I like strong female characters and I love it when they kick ass in movies, but people who have martial art backgrounds can clearly see that these two women have had no real training. So I must disagree on the claim that this is a good example of a female fight. It can be made to look good without extensive training, but that is not the case here. The funny hand positions and the horrible kick give it away.

Haywire will show us how it's done and I'm looking forward to that. Don't get me

Haywire will show us how it's done and I'm looking forward to that. Don't get me wrong, I am all over this flick as well, but this is not badass movie fighting in any sense of the word. Unconvincing-looking fights is one of my pet peeves in films. Some directors can make it look good, most of them don't.

Good examples:
Hit Girl in Kick-Ass
The Bride in Kill Bill
Zen in Chocolate
Sarah Connor in Terminator 2

Now these were badass females who I believed could kick my ass.

It's been done before.

There have been several occasions where Yvonne Strahovski has gone toe to toe with other chicks. No guns, no hair-pulling or slapping, just pure punching and kicking.

Really looking forward to this

Girls fighting in action films (especially against other guys, a la Terminator 3/Die Hard 4) often looks absolutely ridiculous to be honest, but leave it to Brad Bird to get it right. This movie's gonna rock.

Paula Patton certainly looks like she can mess a bitch up. 'Bout time she demonstrated as much.

Wow, that was pretty cool! BTW, the blonde is French actress Lea Seydoux, she was also in Midnight In Paris.
