Press the attack!

I was going to send this out through the new Mailerlite platform but it seems my account has to be approved for some reason. Onward through the fog. Now, to today’s missive.

My wife was watching some movie, which I later found out was Dangerous Waters.

I saw bits and pieces of it as I wandered through the living room and only watched the last fifteen minutes or so. It seems the heroine of the movie had gotten lost at sea somehow and was picked up by a boatload of human traffickers.

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen the movie, and you plan to see it at some point, you’ll want to skip the rest of this post. Go on. Shoo.

Right, for all of you remaining, our heroine goes on the offensive. She takes on the bad guys and attacks them.

The one thing I was impressed with is that she performed a tactic that I almost never see movie heroines do, especially in hand-to-hand combat. She pressed the attack.

Most of the time, the heroine hits the bad guy once, knocks him down, and then stops. Horror movies are rife with this. Drives me nuts having to watch them (my wife writes horror stories and watches a lot of horror movies.)

This gal, in glorious contrast, hits the guy, knocks him down, and then keeps hitting him. They guys do not get back up again. This is as it should be. You don’t want people you’ve already put down to get up and come at you again. Always press the attack.

To quote Captain Malcom Reynolds from the great TV show Firefly “If someone tries to kill you, you try to kill ’em right back!”

Kudos to the writers for making a smart, gutsy heroine for this movie.

Here ends the lesson.
