La montée du héros d'action féminin: trouver l'autonomisation en se battant comme une fille

Le Mois des superproductions célèbre les véritables titans du genre. Dans les semaines à venir, vous découvrirez une variété de fonctionnalités approfondissant les plus grands succès d'Hollywood, des classiques du pop-corn aux joyaux sous-estimés. Aujourd'hui, Jenn Adams retrace la montée, l'évolution et de nombreux tropes du héros d'action féminin.

Les films d'action sont le pain et le beurre de la superproduction estivale. Il y a juste quelque chose à passer une chaude nuit d'été dans un théâtre climatisé, à regarder des explosions à couper le souffle et des scènes de combat épiques. Au centre de ces films se trouve le héros d'action. Le trope a connu de nombreuses itérations au fil des ans. De la force brute de Rocky et Rambo au réalisme de Jason Bourne. Le savoir-faire technologique de James Bond, l'esprit de Will Smith et l'autre monde de Superman. Mais sans doute la star d'action la plus emblématique de tous les temps est Arnold Schwarzenegger. Il incarne l'extrême masculinité, la force, le détachement et les lignes simples que nous associons à ce type de personnage. Enfer, il a été choisi comme la représentation emblématique du trope en 1993 Dernier héros d'action.

Le héros d'action féminine est beaucoup plus rare. Comme Eve, elle est née de sa relation avec ses homologues masculins et a tenu à des attentes si étroites que nous avons peu d'exemples réussis. Les premières stars de l'action féminine peuvent être décrites comme des femmes prenant les caractéristiques masculines acceptées de la force. Nous voyons cela littéralement dans ExtraterrestreEllen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), un personnage écrit à l'origine comme un homme. Mais ils ont évolué au fil des ans et commencent à raconter leurs propres histoires. Il s'agit d'une exploration de la façon dont ces femmes puissantes sont sorties de l'ombre et commencent à devenir autonomes.

Avis de non-responsabilité: sans écrire un livre sur ce sujet (sur ma liste de seaux), il n'y a aucun moyen que je puisse couvrir en détail chaque héros d'action féminin. Donc, pour paraphraser une Harley Quinn, c'est ma théorie, et je vais la dire comme je veux.

Mon film préféré de tous les temps est Terminator 2: Jour du jugement. J'ai grandi en regardant ma copie VHS éditée pour la télévision presque tous les jours, et cela semble réel, contrairement à d'autres films. En grandissant, l'héroïne du film, Sarah Conner (Linda Hamilton) était mon idéal de force féminine. Elle est forte d'une manière que je voulais être, et elle n'a pas peur. En tant que mère, elle se bat pour son fils, mais au lieu de le réconforter, elle le protège froidement même au prix de leur relation.

Son homologue masculin dans le film est The Terminator (Schwarzenegger), une machine non programmée pour l'empathie. Son arc tourne autour de l'apprentissage de ce que sont les émotions et pourquoi les humains les ressentent. Sarah a un parcours similaire. Pour survivre, elle a dû éteindre ces instincts en elle-même et elle a du mal à les rallumer. Ils apprennent tous les deux à aimer, mais l'arc de The Terminator est présenté comme extraordinaire tandis que celui de Sarah est un retour à l'ordre établi. Personne ne s'attend à ce que le Terminator aime un enfant, et Sarah ne devrait rien faire d'autre.

Parce que nos premières itérations de héros d'action féminins étaient des anomalies, la façon dont la société a su les accepter était de leur donner les qualités que nous apprécions chez nos héros masculins. Les armes de Sarah sont des armes à feu et elle se bat comme The Terminator. Ils communiquent comme une machine bien huilée car ils parlent le même langage de combat. Mais sa froideur s'est présentée comme un obstacle à surmonter, alors que dans The Terminator, c'est sa force à embrasser.

Depuis sa création, Hollywood a rarement permis aux femmes d'être plus que des mères ou des objets sexuels, et donc le héros d'action féminin doit également avoir ces traits. Mais The Terminator n'a pas à vivre dans ces limites. Il ne peut exister que pour botter le cul. Les femmes ne sont pas autorisées à agir comme les hommes très longtemps sans être punies. Pour emprunter au genre de l'horreur, à un moment donné, ils doivent laisser tomber le couteau et revenir à leur place dans le patriarcat. Il est trop inconfortable pour nous de les laisser s’élever au-dessus.

Angelina Jolie, une actrice qui s'est fait un nom dans des drames comme Gia et Fille interrompue. Mais avec Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, elle est devenue une star de l'action capable de porter son propre film. Cela a bien fonctionné en raison des qualités de l'actrice. Bien qu'il y ait beaucoup à aimer chez Angeline Jolie, il ne fait aucun doute que ses caractéristiques extrêmes et son personnage mystérieusement distant se prêtent au type de froideur émotionnelle observée chez les stars de l'action masculine.

Ceci est en plein affichage dans Monsieur et Madame smith où elle joue avec Brad Pitt en tant qu'assassins mariés, tous deux chargés de tuer l'autre. Ils jouent essentiellement le même rôle émotionnel. Tous deux désireux de désactiver leurs sentiments lorsque cela est nécessaire. Il s'agit d'un pas en avant dans la mesure où elle est toujours présentée par rapport à un homme, mais ici, ils sont sur un pied d'égalité. Et elle est capable d'utiliser ses qualités féminines plus classiques comme un atout plutôt que comme un obstacle.

Uma Thurman en tant que The Bride est une autre étape intéressante dans le sous-genre des héros d'action féminins. La star de Quentin Tarantino Kill Bill Vol. 1 et 2, il ne fait aucun doute qu'elle a brisé le moule en jouant un assassin en quête de vengeance. Elle est une combattante unique avec un look emblématique, et le film lui-même présente plusieurs femmes diverses et capables de se défendre.

La mariée est complexe en ce qu'elle est à la fois une meurtrière et une mère compliquant les archétypes traditionnels. Et elle se bat seule sans homologue masculin direct. Cependant, tout son arc est gouverné par un homme. Son objectif tourne autour de Bill, qui obtient le titre de son film. Nous ne découvrons son nom qu'à mi-chemin 2ieme volume. Bien que révolutionnaire, elle et les autres assassines féminines sont fétichisées par le réalisateur Quentin Tarantino et ses idées emblématiques de ce que signifie fort et féminin. Ils sont présentés comme des corps uniques à déchirer de manière intéressante.

Un personnage similaire est Resident Evil’S Alice (Milla Jovavich). Librement basé sur le jeu d'horreur de survie, Jovavich a maintenu la même longévité de succès en franchise que des stars comme Sylvester Stallone et Tom Cruise, mais à plus petite échelle. La franchise Resident Evil est une horreur de genre qui n'a jamais vraiment percé le grand public, bien-aimée dans une communauté déjà connue pour embrasser la non-conformité. Bien qu'Alice n'ait pas d'homologue masculin dans le film, elle est inspirée par des personnages fétichisés d'un monde de jeu qui sont des images littérales contrôlées par d'autres.

Une évolution importante dans le genre du film d'action est l'émergence et la domination des films de bandes dessinées. Et tandis que des personnages comme Mystique, Black Widow et Captain Marvel sont remarquables, Wonder Woman est sans doute le plus puissant. Commençant comme l'homologue de Superman, la dernière itération, jouée par Gal Gadot, a pris sa propre vie.

Bien que le voyage de Wonder Woman à travers No-Man’s Land soit un peu sur le nez, il me fait toujours pleurer. Parfois, vous devez dire la vérité à voix haute, même si cela semble évident ou trop sentimental. Quand elle dit: «Je crois à l'amour», elle prend un trait de caractère longtemps considéré comme affaiblissant les femmes et l'utilise comme une puissante motivation pour continuer à se battre. Elle crée un idéal où le pouvoir ne réside pas dans la force, mais dans l'empathie et ne réussit pas en dépit d'être une femme, mais à cause de cela.

Bien que plus silencieuse, la ligne qui me touche le plus est parlée à un homme qui lui donne un ordre. «Ce que je fais ne dépend pas de vous», dit-elle. It’s only a moment, but it caused me to question how often I wait for permission from others to be who I am out loud.

We see evolution in the way she fights as well. While Superman and Batman basically just smash each other into building after building, she fights with flamboyant style as do the Amazon women of her homeland. Her strongest move is a defensive one. She crosses her arms in an X and is able to reflect the power of her attacker back at them, a protective gesture I use often as a reaction to a physical trigger. She is setting a boundary and sending back the negative energy rather than absorbing it as women are so often asked to do. Her interactions with Steve reveal that the rules the patriarchy has constructed to hold us in check don’t actually serve any of us.

2020’s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is another significant step on the road to empowerment and representation. Directed by Cathy Yan, this film is about imperfect women kicking ass in their own ways, listening to their intuition instead of taking orders from men. Featuring a diverse cast of women, it’s led by Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), whose transformation from 2017’s Suicide Squad is striking.

Dans Suicide Squad, she is sexualized almost constantly. Existing to pine for The Joker who clearly views her as his own property. Two club scenes perfectly illustrate this dichotomy. Dans Suicide Squad, she dances sexily and teases a man for the amusement of Mr. J. But in Birds of Prey, her dancing is rave-like, her clothes are more androgynous, and she even throws up in a stranger’s purse. She is allowed to be human. Beautiful, but flawed. Iconic, but relatably unique. Dans Birds of Prey, she’s no longer pining for the Joker, but for a breakfast sandwich. Learning to stand on her own, she becomes more than just a pretty face.

But she is not the only one seeking freedom. Birds of Prey tells the story of five unique women breaking away from the systems that have controlled them. Their relationships with each other are complex, but they succeed by fighting together. (The moment when Harley gives Black Canary a hair tie always makes me cheer.) They are all unique. While some dress sexily, none are over sexualized — and they fight in different ways.

Harley’s weapons of choice are glitter-loaded smoke bombs and roller skates. The Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) takes a more masculine approach with her motorcycle and crossbow. And Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) uses her voice as her most powerful weapon. Harley uses her voice as well, unabashedly telling her own story in her own way. An empowering cinematic choice in a world where women’s voices are too often silenced.

One reason we don’t see female stars lead decades-long action franchises is because Hollywood traditionally does not allow women to age in the same way as men, relegating women of a certain age to more matronly roles. However, we’re starting to see iconic women like Jamie Lee Curtis and Linda Hamilton reprise their roles, anchoring legacy sequels like Halloween 2018 et Terminator: Dark Fate. A matriarchy is emerging along with an important change in our perceptions.

By embracing our favorite heroines as human, gray hair and all, we can let everyone else off the hook as well. Dans Dark Fate, we see that The Terminator has become a husband figure who helps with the groceries and designs drapes for children’s bedrooms. While played for laughs, it’s an important step, a commentary on our reluctance to let male stars explore different elements of their personalities as well. Like women, we strive to make them ideals rather than human beings. And this is how the patriarchy hurts everyone. When we lose the rigid guidelines of who we are supposed to be, we can all show that our strengths lie in our uniqueness. We can take our stories in our own hands and tell them the way we want to.

While Dark Fate is directed by a man, it is feminist in showing a diverse matriarchy made up of complex human beings. Sarah now leads a group of women who don’t see themselves as necessary only for the existence of a male leader. They see that they are the ones who can lead. If we are brave enough to follow, we will see what Sarah Conner knew to be true all along: There’s no fate but what we make for ourselves.
