'Let Her Go' The Movie Cliché Supercut

Women. You leave them unsupervised for one minute and they go do something silly, like getting kidnapped by a super villain, hell-bent on world domination.

No one understands that sexist cliché better than cinema’s action heroes, who tirelessly toil to retrieve Hollywood's damsels in distress. Fortunately, these protagonists are armed with a foolproof strategy to secure safe release: the phrase “Let her go!” (which is often said with steely-eyed determination).

Praise, then, to these great feminists of cinema -- the Chuck Norrises, the Arnold Schwarzeneggers and the Jean Claude Van Dammes. Without them, those women would probably still be held in the patriarchal clutches of their male oppressors.

Watch the movie compilation above, and learn how heroism is done, at least for cinema’s greatest action stars.

Tip of the hat to Vince Mancini of FilmDrunk for providing the inspiration.
