Do you agree that actresses in action movies should be tough and hard and look convincing?

User Avatar
Some say yes: When you see an action actress that is muscular, you say to yourself that you would not want to get on her bad side. With today's action girls, you look at them and think sexy. This is the wrong image for an action actress. Some say no: I agree that they should look convincing, but that does not automatically equate tough or hard. Matt Damon, a male action star, is very convincing in his parts. He is fit, but is not the old style classic cliche either. He is not built like Schwarzenegger or Van Damme, but in his parts, he can convincingly hold his own. The same is true for female actresses. They do not have to be built like a bodybuilder in order to look convincing. Being beautiful or petite does not negate the fact that they are athletic or skilled.

What do people mean when they say the tough action man or action woman needs to look convincing?

User Avatar
Looking convincing means they need to look tough -- they need to be muscular and fit, they need to be able to look mean and act like they mean business.
Asked in Action & Adventure Movies, King Kong

Is King Kong real?

User Avatar
No, King Kong is fictional. The character of King Kong, as Merian C. Cooper created him in the script he wrote for the motion picture of that title, actually could not physically exist on Earth because his bone and muscle tissue would be too weak to support his weight. However, there was once a species of great ape far larger in mean-average size than most other types of great ape, called Gigantopithecus. It has also been linked with the "yeti," or "abominable snowman," which is believed to inhabit the Himalayan Mountains, and with "Sasquatch/Bigfoot," which is said to inhabit the forests of North America. Both of these are said to be anthropoid creatures whose existences have yet to be proven or disproven conclusively. But the Gigantopithecus species of great ape is known to have previously existed, and that species of ape might very well have influenced Cooper's creation of the character of King Kong. King Kong first appearance was in Japan, in <a href="http://www.bestfreestreaming.com/">Godzilla</a> series. One of Godzilla's enemy.

What is Umbrella Corp's new name?

User Avatar
In the canon story of the games, the Umbrella Corporation was shut down by the government in 2003. The only name it was known by was Umbrella, followed by the abbreviations Corp., Inc., or lesser known as Umbrella Pharmaceuticals. The company that rose to prominence after Umbrella's shutdown was named Tricell. Tricell is an entirely different entity that Umbrella, though. It is not a new name for the Umbrella Corporation.

How did Batman get robin?

User Avatar
Robin 1 Dick Greyson's parents were killed in a horrible circus accident. Not long afterward he was adopted by million heir playboy, Bruce Wayne. When Dick stumbled on to the secret that Bruce is actually Batman, Bruce trained the young acrobat to become his side kick and dubbed him 'Robin.' Eventually Dick struck out on his own as the super hero known as 'Nighwing.' Robin 2 In 1983, DC comics began revamping older series and Jason Todd was named the new Robin and given a similar back story. In 1988 The Joker kidnapped Jason Todd and DC comics ran a phone poll where readers could call in and vote for weather or not they wanted the Joker to kill him. The character was killed off by a vote of 5343-5271. He later was resurrected as the anti-hero "The Red Hood.' Robin 3 Tim Drake was in the audience at the circus when Dick Graysons parents were killed. Later he introduced himself to Grayson (When Grayson had taken the roll of Nightwing) and impressed him with his skill. Grayson and Alfred Pennyworth appealed to Bruce Wayne to become the new Robin. Wayne eventually agreed and trained him as the new Robin. He has since assumed the identity of "Red Robin". Robin 4 Stephanie Brown was first introduced as the daughter of the lesser Riddler-like super-villain, "Cluemaster". She created the costumed identity "The Spoiler" in order to foil her father's elaborate crimes. She was discovered by Batman and Robin (Tim Drake) and discouraged from continuing her vigilante career. But she did continue and teamed up regularly (occasionally romantically) with Robin. When Tim was forced to retire as Robin by his father, Stephanie briefly took up the role of Robin. After a run-in with Black Mask and her identity was compromised, she faked her own death and later re-appeared first as Spoiler and then Batgirl. Robin 5 Damian Wayne is the biological son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul. Gestated in an artificial womb, he was trained by the League of Assassins until about the age of 7 or 8, when Talia introduced him to Batman. His lethal methods were eventually reformed and he assumed the role of Robin. As of this writing, he has recently been killed by an older clone of himself.

Why are they not any muscular action girls?

User Avatar
For one thing, women simply aren't built the same way as men. A female does not naturally pack on the same amount of muscle mass. That doesn't mean they aren't strong, fit, or totally capable. It just means they are put together differently. Often, women that workout and build mass tend to do stretching routines to help tone and lengthen the muscles as well. They can be quite muscular, and not show the same way as a buff man. As far as the movies go, female action hero types tend to rely on intelligence, cunning, and training more than just brute strength as well.

Are there two robins in Batman?

User Avatar
There is Batman and Robin (not Batman and two robins). ____ There are 3 different Robins. However, only one ever wears the suit at any time. Dick Grayson, the first Robin, left Batman and later became Nightwing. Jason Todd, Robin #2, died. Tim Drake, the final Robin, was driven insane by the Joker. Stephanie Brown and Damian Wayne also are Robin at some points.
