Misogyny bothers me more in realistic films than it does in action films. Action films are supposed to be about male bravado, so IMO they get a pass.
Then they'd have to be against non-macho male characters too.

Also there were 2 tough chick characters in Fast & Furious 6.

The films that bug me are the sort of films that pretend to be progressive when really they are preaching super-conservative values. Things like Friends With Kids, No Strings Attached. Where the premise is something modern and forward thinking, but then the conclusion is that no, it's impossible to really have anything except a traditional family and traditional meaning of sex.
Jagten/The Hunt, and other similar stories, can be a bit sad how all emphasis is on, how innocent people are being affected by societal punishment, as if, if the guy was guilty, then it'd be all ok.
