After the list of most famous SF heroines, here are some dangerous girls from our own planet.
They are beautiful and dangerous to the point that we ask ourselves, what planet do they come from? However, unlike their colleagues from the future and our neighboring galaxies, the next five heroines are the product of our dear Mother Earth.
In spite the fact that they are made out of flesh and bone and regardless of the fact that their skeleton does not include metal, they are powerful enough that we would not want to cross them. All they need is a loaded gun or ‘ordinary’ samurai sword. Laser guns are obsolete.
Beautiful girl who loves history
High on the list of the biggest movie heroines, especially if this is judged by the men, is one of the most beautiful women in the world, (who is incidentally married to one of the handsomest men in the world), Angelina Jolie.
When one thinks of Angie, one thing that almost instantly comes to one’s mind, is her adaptation of Lara Croft character. Lara Croft is a computer game heroine that rescues the world with two pistols strapped to her bare thighs and Angelina defended the popularity of already popular character gloriously.
Famous heroine with attitude and weapons
After jumping around ancient temples, collecting artifacts and fighting the Illuminatis (who want to control time), she finally found peace with Brad Pitt and their herd of children.
Actresses who play cat woman are notorious for wearing tight gears that sometimes border on SM fetish costumes. Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns had one of the most famous adaptations of this character, but Halle Berry from the movie Catwoman is not far from her.
Cats walking on a thin line between good and evil
Cat Women emerged during sixties with the first big screen adaptations of Batman comic books.
They are always portrayed as shy girls, who after a terrible event acquire all the characteristics of cats, their seductive walk, speed, focus, giddiness and excessive curiosity. Berry and Pfeiffer’s cat women always balanced the thin line between good and evil.
Tarantino’s muse with a sword
- Bill ... it's your baby ... – She said while lying half dead in a blood soaked wedding dress. A moment prior to that, Bill has killed all the wedding guests and her fiancé. Her name is The Bride, also known as Beatrice Kidd, but she is mostly known as Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill character.
In two sequels of the Kill Bill she was an elite assassin whose only aim in life was to avenge her husband, and her unborn child, that is, to kill Bill and his entire team. Nobody can stop her, and how could they when she always wears her faithful companion, Hatorri Hanzo, the best sword in the world.
Quentin Tarantino, film director and screenwriter, wrote the role of The Bride for Uma specifically. She was his muse during the Pulp Fiction as well. There, she danced with John Travolta and won the trophy for the best twist dance of the evening. In Batman and Robin, she threatened the main character with her poisonous kiss.
In any case, the combination of her graceful yet delicate beauty, and dangerous habits of the characters she plays, makes her unforgettable.
Gun under the little black dress
Dangerous habits have changed the life of Nikita who appeared twice on the film and countless times on the television screen. Wherever you find her, she is always the perfect weapon, precise and ruthless killer, who constantly wants something between a vacation and change of the profession.
Nikita first appeared on the screen after French director, Luc Besson, shot the first film adaptation of Nikita. The title of the movie was ‘Nikita’ and many film experts consider it to be the best version. A young girl prone to drugs is caught in theft in which she killed a policeman. Instead of spending the life in prison, Nikita is sent to a special school for spies where she continues to pay off her debt to society.
After the French version, the film Nikita was revived by Bridget Fonda in Point of no return, where heroine flaunts her big guns as much as its French predecessor. Of course this gun is still skillfully hidden under the black cocktail dress.
Usually, Nikita is associated with the series La Femme Nikita, which was shot from 1997 to 2001, and which experienced countless re-runs on Croatian TV.
So, it would not be surprising at all if you turned on your TV tonight and saw Peta Wilson’s beautiful face.
