 "The old-school heroes would just gun a baddie down and then make a banal quip. The women, aided by invisible wires, keep kicking you in the head until you crumple. It's more realistic in a way and some of them are just terrifying."

It's not just the image of high-kicking leather-clad babes that makes this a nice story. There's the comment that women action heroes are "more sexually aggressive... and much more rawly violent" than Ah-nold. And then there's the claim that Ah-nold plans to go back to movies. If that's true then the California vote really did do some good ;-)
