For Summer Glau, there's her role as Cameron on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. For Eliza Dushku, Echo on Dollhouse.

My other top suggestions are all Asian, so you'd have to be willing to read subtitles (or listen to a horrible English dub, where available):

1. Shu Qi, Zhao Wei, and Karen Mok in So Close (Mandarin audio with English subtitles)
2. Jeeja Yanin in Chocolate and Raging Phoenix (Thai audio with English subtitles),
3. Moon Lee in Iron Angels, The Avenging Quartet, and Yes Madam! A Serious Shock! (Cantonese audio with English subtitles)

I have this list Females Fighting.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at May 17 3:17
I'll check them out. Also, I've never seen either of the first recommendations so I can't add them till I do, but if Summer's terminator role is anywhere near as great as Firefly's then I definately need to.
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at May 17 10:51
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a more serious, dark, and dire series (excessively so, and IMO why it was canceled) than Firefly, which could be overly campy at times, but if you liked the Terminator movies, you should like it. But Summer was great in both and certainly very intimidating in T:TSCC as one of the terminators (Shirley Manson, the singer, actually was too, in what I think was her first acting role). She shows up in Dollhouse, too, in season 2, but as a more nerdy character and with an arm whose nerves have been severed at the shoulder, so she can't kick as much ass there. :)

Dollhouse is an uneven show, as to be expected when you have each actor playing a different character every episode and doing totally different things, and its several episodes into the first season before the show finds its footing, but when its good its really good.

Oh yeah! Nobody kicks ass like girls! Especially Milla as Alice, she is the baddest! :)
Posted: 8 years, 4 months ago at May 29 6:14
I've never seen resident evil cause I have this illogical fear of zombies.
Posted: 8 years, 3 months ago at Jun 4 6:37
Wheres Angelina Jolie??? Man....
Posted: 8 years, 3 months ago at Jun 4 22:08
Yeey for Xena \o/
Posted: 8 years, 2 months ago at Jul 20 4:38
What about Hudson Leik as Calisto from Xena?

Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers

Summer's character for Terminator was Cameron.
Posted: 7 years, 8 months ago at Jan 5 6:34
Ellen Ripley?
Posted: 7 years, 5 months ago at Apr 25 21:57
i like sarah walker
Posted: 7 years, 2 months ago at Jun 28 18:55
Nice work here! Ha, nice to see Xena wasn't forgotten!! Good old 90's cheese with an attitude. Gotta love it!

A number of these I'm unfamiliar with, so movie titles somewhere might be helpful. And as a couple others have said, Lt. Ripley from the Alien series needs to be here. Great films too, so if the reason she's absent is because you haven't seen them yet you really should! Sarah Connor from The first two Terminator films jumps out at me too!

P.S. Keep a look out for Zoe's new film, Colombiana!
Posted: 7 years, 2 months ago at Jul 18 19:38
I suggest Sissy (Elisha Dushku), Missy (Jennifer Schwalbach Smith) & Chrissi (Ali Larter) (& Justice, Shannon Elizabeth) from Jay and SilentBob strike back :)
Posted: 7 years ago at Sep 13 4:14
great list!
Posted: 7 years ago at Sep 14 23:52
Since you've already got all the other Sucker Punch girls, why not throw in Jamie Chung as well?





Maggie Q also deserves a Nikita reference.

Posted: 7 years ago at Sep 15 1:18
What do you think about Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II in Watchmen? There was the fight with the Topknots in the alley, the tag team asskicking-fest with Nite Owl II when they break Rorschach out of prison during the riot, plus that little scene where the government dude says she's not doing her "job" and she promptly puts him back in his place.

One other woman I would put on this list would be
Cote de Pablo as Ziva David. My god what a woman. I
love when River Tam jumps in amongst The Reavers and
says My Turn.
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Nov 6 6:08
Cote de Pablo delicious.
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Nov 6 16:23
Jennifer Garner in Elektra
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Nov 5 22:05
Ali Larter in Heroes.
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Nov 25 12:06
Evangeline Lilly on Lost?

I also think Veronica Mars is pretty kick-ass and since you have K-Bell on the list already, may I suggest adding her?
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Nov 25 15:54
milla as alice
"reigning queen of kick-butt".
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Nov 25 16:18
you forgot one of the greatest action movie actress of all time ... zhang ziyi (crouching tiger hiding dragon) maggie cheung (hero) shu qi (so close) lindsey fonseca (nikita) and michelle yeoh (crouching tiger hiding dragon)
Posted: 5 years, 10 months ago at Nov 27 2:38
Yup,...!
Posted: 4 years, 8 months ago at Jan 2 10:08
Great list! There are many more you can add, but I like your choices. Angelina Jolie is the queen of kick-ass females. Love her in Mr. & Mrs Smith.
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Mar 20 15:53
Awesome list!
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Mar 20 20:01
Jenna Malone as Johanna Mason on THG: Catching Fire!
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Mar 10 2:31
How about Michelle Rodriguez as Luz in Machete and Machete Kills?
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Oct 25 20:08
Awesome list. I would suggest adding:

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman from The Dark Knight Rises
Zoe Saldana as Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy
Holly Hunter as Ms. Incredible from the Incredibles
Carrie Anne-Moss as Trinity from The Matrix
Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop
and The Powerpuff Girls
