Favorite Films With Tough Women

  • Nov 17, 2009
  • by
Was thinking about all the films that I have seen that had a really tough woman in the lead or in a memorable role. I am sure that I missed quite a lot but these are the ones that come to mind.
1
Aliens
Ellen Ripley in her most kick-ass role (stay away from her you bitch!). And who can forget Private Vasquez? The combination of the two puts this at the top of my list.
2
The Long Kiss Goodnight
Geena Davis as a relentless "Jason Bourne-like" clone with a little John McClane thrown in. She really takes care of the bad guys in this one.
See the full review, "Gina Sizzles!".
3
Bend It Like Beckham
Why a movie about soccer. Well Jess stands tall against her family and their traditions and really kicks butt on the soccer field.
See the full review, "Excellent!".
4
Lethal Weapon 3 (Director's Cut) (1992)
Rene Russo's Lorna Cole character could take on anybody!
5
Die Another Day
Halle Berry's Jinx was the only woman who gave Bond a run for his money. His virtual equal!
6
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon DVD
With Ziyi Zhang and Michelle Yeoh as tough women, who can go wrong!
See the full review, "The Most Overrated Movie Ever!".
7
Planet Terror
Rose McGowan with that machine gun coming out of her leg. She was baaad!
See the full review, "Very Entertaining Zombie-type Tale!".
8
Working Girl
Nobody can mess with Tess and get away with it! She gets the last laugh.
9
Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
Jennifer Garner as Elektra and those sais! Nobody better mess with her.
See the full review, "Worth Owning!".
10
Demolition Man
I could have picked Miss Congeniality but I prefer Sandra Bullock as Lenina Huxley. She was tough at the end of the film.
See the full review, "Very Entertaining!".
11
Million Dollar Baby (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition)
It took a dirty shot from behind to do in the relentless Hilary Swank. A true tough babe!
See the full review, "A Truely Great Film!".
12
Kill Bill Vol. 1
The combination of Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and Vivica A. Fox's characters can't be beat. And let's not forget Go Go!
See the full review, "Excellent Action Fiick, One of Tarrantino's Best".

Love your idea for this list and the ladies on it!  Where's Kill Bill though? ;P
