The 28 Best Action Movies With Strong Female Leads

It’s still kind of surprising that action movies are perceived as a genre not only dominated by male characters, but primarily sought out by female audiences. Wonder Woman broke box office records, Kill Bill remains a beloved cinema classic, and Hanna was such a cult favorite that it got its own spin-off Amazon series. And yet, some men are just gonna men. So in order to prove definitively that women not only kick butt in the action genre but also draw big ol’ audiences across the gender spectrum to see them do it, here’s a list of the best action movies of all time that happen to star strong female characters. You’re welcome, society.

‘Captain Marvel’

Hell yeah, Captain Marvel! Just when some fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were worried that there wouldn’t be a one-off film about a female superhero, Brie Larson comes in to save the day—nay, the galaxy. And she’s so powerful that they even keep her at arm’s length in Avengers: Endgame because she’d probably end the movie too fast. She’s that good. 

‘Atomic Blonde’
