5 Most Badass Film Heroines of 2012
Whether it’s with a bow and arrow, a sword, or a black leather body suit, these five women have all found a way to kick some major ass.
This year, we have seen more women in action roles than ever before. It seems that the days of the damsel in distress may be numbered as women take to fighting their own battles. Whether its with a bow and arrow, a sword, or a black leather body suit, these five women have all found a way to kick some major ass. With a new generation of young girls in need of some positive role models (as opposed to the Paris Hilton-influenced generation), it seems that there are finally some worthy role models. This could just be the beginning of a larger trend. All of the films below dominated the box office upon release, three of them ranking in the top five for the year. One can only hope that this will convince Hollywood that people will see films with female heroes. Princesses who can save themselves. Girls who fight for worthy causes, even if its their own freedom. This is what we want to see. WARNING: The rest of this post contains major spoilers for some of this year's biggest blockbusters.
