Today I bring you my favourite bad ass chicks in movies! I hope you enjoy this list and please let me know about your picks in the comments below!
Mallory Knox (Juliette Lewis in Natural Born Killers):
Never, ever mess with this woman. She is more than just dangerous. Nevertheless she will always one of my favourite movie characters. Although sometimes pretty crazy, she is loyal and stands up for herself. Nothing or Nobody could ever put her down.
All the Ladies from Sin City:
This is pretty much the most dangerous gang I could think of. No one would ever get the idea to start shit in Old Town. These chicks are dangerous – they have their own laws.
Cherry Darling (Rose McGowan in Planet Terror):
This is my favourite Rose McGowan role ever. She has to overcome many difficulties (like losing a leg…) but always copes with her troubles and finds a way. Seriously, what could be more bad ass than shooting a bunch of assholes with a machine gun leg?
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games Trilogy):
This one is trained in fighting. She could shoot you in the eye with an arrow from half a league away. She fights her way trough this world and gets up again no matter how often she falls. Katniss could really get through everything. You could abandon her in the middle of nowhere with absolutely nothing and she’d still find a way to come back.
Beatrix Kiddo/The Bride (and basically all other women in Kill Bill; Uma Thurman):
Being wronged and then going on a revenge killing spree is only for people with a lot of endurance (especially if you just woke from a coma). She fights her way back into her life.
However, all the other chicks she has to deal with are also not to mess with. They all have their stories, they all have their scars.
Fox (Angelina Jolie in Wanted):
In this film Angelina Jolie plays a really bad ass killer. Although she played a bunch of roles like that by now, this one is my favourite. Fox is the type of woman who could easily conquer the world.
Leeloo (Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element):
Leeloo is some sort of alien. Half a world (or better a whole world) away from home that she is a fierce warrior with incredible strength. Oh and on top of that, she is the weapon to defeat all evil.
Babydoll (Emily Browning in Sucker Punch):
Although confronted with nothing but trouble she never gives up. A lot of rocks are thrown in her way but Babydoll fights her way through no matter what. Like most of the other woman on this list, she learns is all the hard way.
Vanessa Lutz (Reese Witherspoon in Freeway):
Probably Reese Witherspoon’s darkest role ever. Freeway is the most bad ass version of “Red Riding Hood” you will see. You wouldn’t believe how much shit can happen to you in a few days. But she has this “fuck everything” attitude that gets her through a lot.
Shosanna Dreyfus/Emmanuelle Mimieux (Mélanie Laurent in Inglorious Basterds):
Waiting half a life to get your revenge is hard. Than being faced with the perfect opportunity and having to play it cool is even harder.
Her life way destroyed but she got back on feet and ultimately gets what she wants.
