When people think of action films, they usually remember men, right? Male spies or soldiers or superheroes in tight costumes. This is only the tip of the iceberg because women have also done some amazingly badass stunts themselves. Here are five of the best fight scenes featuring strong, awesome women for a change:
Kill Bill Vol. 1: The Bride vs. Gogo and The Crazy 88
Director Quentin Tarantino sure loves getting his lead characters beaten up! In this scene, Uma Thurman battles rival Lucy Liu's subordinates singlehandedly—all 89 of them.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Yu Shu Lien vs. Jen Yu
Sword fight! Those drum beats sure add a nice touch to this scene between Michelle Yeoh and Zhang Ziyi. Note how one character casually flies away at the end. LOL.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith: Jane Smith vs. John Smith
Ah, Brangelina. While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still making us sob because of their separation, this scene from Mr. and Mrs. Smith sure stands out from the others because no one's really the enemy.
Wonder Woman: Diana vs. A Lot Of Soldiers
Iron Man 2: Black Widow vs. The Bad GuysFirst of all, Scarlett Johansson's hair looks awesome! Black Widow defeats an entire corridor of people while Happy Hogan's all "hey, I managed to take down this one guy."
