Action movies used to be synonymous with testosterone-fueled heroes, but Hollywood's landscape is rapidly changing. Gone are the days when female characters were degreted showing just their soft sides and distresses. Today, women are kicking down doors in action-packed blockbusters, proving they are just as capable of saving the day.

Just like Damsel. After garnering immense appreciation in Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown once again will be seen doing some amazing action sequences with this Netflix movie.
