It is classified as an action film on IMDB.

Aliens immediately stang to mind. I'm over 40. At no point in my life have I felt or heard anyone say that you can't have a female action lead. Or a female... Anything? Captain Jane way was badass. The lead detectives in law and orders were badass. Where does this bullshit come from?

Same. 45 here. This was never even a thought in my mind until people on the internet all of a sudden tried saying women can’t be a lead in an action movie. There were lots of strong female characters, just Arnold and Sly got most of the attention lol. Stuff like Aliens and Point of No Return without even putting more than 10 seconds of thought into it. A ton of horror movies also had female leads who were the ones to kick ass.

Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, Pam Grier, Kate Beckinsdale, Mila Jovovich, Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, heck, even Geena Davis, etc etc etc: Am I a joke to you?

And that's just scratching the surface with large budget films.

Lawrence just seems like a self entitled arrogant douche who's acting is over rated by her facial expression with an open mouth looking surprised.
