2012 expect us, more than ever, with a lot of heroines in all kinds of movies, but today, we selected the top 10 heroines from action movies.
Snow White is not any more a children’s story, but a fantasy like Lord of the Rings, with enough action, and victims of black magic. Stewart will learn to wield the sword and ride, and the hunter (Hemsworth) will be the protector and mentor of girl in her struggle against the evil Queen (Theron). Of course, some changes to the story were required: first, the context is that of an alternative Middle Ages, in which spells and wiles meets politics.
The role of the heroine from Alien, Noomi Rapace-starring Charlize Theron, a female duo action. Noomi Rapace plays the positive role and her character is somewhat similar to that of Sigourney Weaver from the first Alien. The new film series exploring the origins of creatures that appear in the film and Noomi, enshrined in the depiction of action character Lisbeth Salander’s role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), again on glacial-impassive, will take this time astronaut suit.
The film is a reinterpretation of the Grimm Brothers fairy tale, directed by Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow). Become adult, Hansel and Gretel (Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton) become bounty hunters or, rather, the witch, as the title says. After a role with action in Prince of Persia, Arterton won the role of Gretel in front of Noomi Rapace and Eva Green.
07. John Carter
A Texan beauty, Lynn Collins will play Dejah Thoris, the beautiful Princess of Mars, in John Carter (directed by Andrew Stanton). Collins, who starred in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Merchant of Venice (here the role Gate, a beautiful and intelligent woman who chooses wisely the contenders). The role of Princess of Mars is comparable to Princess Leia from Star Wars: a female character in a man’s world.
06. The Hunger Games
Placed in a fictional post-apocalyptic country, panem, in an alternative future, The Hunger Games is the story of Katniss Everdean, a young girl of sixteen participating in a sinister game to be televised fight to the death. Even if a book for teenagers, hunger games were with the mesh and adult readers.
05. Total Recall
Melina will accompany Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) to fight against tyrannical administrator Mars Coohagen. A very good movie, which many years after its appearance on the big screen movie remain a benchmark in SF movie history. A very good movie that deserves to stay in your video collection.
Even if it’s only a secondary role, Raikes (Rihanna) will fight with other Marines against a major threat. Battleship made us miss the period when Hollywood movies were of 80-90 minutes and they were used not only to show us news on special effects. Battleship hit the nail in one respect, the special effects, but except for a very spectacular final sequence.
Kate Beckinsale is in the role of vampire warrior Selene from Underworld: Awakening, and the action takes place 12 years after the end of the second film in the series (Underworld: Evolution). Selena, vampire warrior with unusual powers, awakens from a coma in a world quite different from the one we knew. It is a world where people find out about vampires and lycan-s that hunt them for over a decade. In addition, discovers he has a teenage daughter and her new adventures put face to face with a ghost corporation, Antigen, who suspects that would create hybrid mutants, including a huge beast called uber-lycan.
Catwoman or Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) is another heroine in leotard, the orders of a powerful vehicle. Her look and dress on engine shown pragmatic (glasses, not a mask) to other old “Catwoman” (Halle Berry, Michelle Pfeiffer). After comic books, must be the evil. She will join forces with Batman in The Dark Knight Rises, whose style is copied or not?
01. The Avengers
