Awesome to see Princess Mononoke so high up, Miyazaki has always been excellent when it comes to female characters. I was GOING to complain about Chihiro from Spirited Away not being in there seeing as she's basically Alice in Wonderland but with a more significant character arc, but Princess M. does take a whole lot of c**p in that film...

Did I miss Mathilda from Leon or have you committed a heinous crime?!?

The image accompanying Jen from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is actually of Mei from House Of Flying Daggers. Both played by Zhang Ziyi, but I thought it worth pointing out.

I try not to add who I think you missed out as this is not my list but I can't resist here. Ophelia (I think that's her name) from Pan's Labyrinth should be in there somewhere and I still think no Catwoman to date is better than Michele Pfeiffer. The tag team of Thelma and Louise should always be in a list like this.

@Heisenberg - yep, have same problem on my work pc. Very annoying.
Aug 14th 2012, 12:45
Oh and @anthonyhillman - unless this has been updated since 9 oclock this morning, the image of Jen does appear to be from Crouching Tiger. She's got the Green Destiny (think thats what it was called) behind her.

Is catwoman a Heroine? she mostly seems to be doing things for selfish reasons throughout the entire film.
Aug 14th 2012, 13:21
Despite being branded a villain, she’s not all bad, as demonstrated in prequel X-Men: First Class.
Is this the definition of a hero? TF just do a list of 20 please
Aug 14th 2012, 13:37
Great list, would have liked Sydney from Scream, Carol Anne from Poltergeist and a couple others ^_^
Aug 14th 2012, 14:36
@SiMan Yup, it's been updated since this morning.
Aug 14th 2012, 21:07
brave would be Scarlet Johansson learning more than 2 facial expressions.
Aug 14th 2012, 21:54
Wait no Matilda from Leon?? Knew Ripley was gonna be No.1 but thought Matilda was gonna be in there. Heisenberg its every 3rd or 4th for me. They did have this thing sorted...
Aug 14th 2012, 22:18
@Hadouken, or Kristen Stewart learning more than 1
Aug 15th 2012, 23:33
Woah no Ophelia from Pan's?! Thought she'd be competing for top spot! And Mathilda? She was brave to take Leon's large, throbbing... Nevermind! And why not Kate Beckinsale over Rhona Mitra? Can't remember their names, I didn't really listen to the Underworld films... Dr Aki from The Spirits Within? How about the heroine from Rec?
Aug 16th 2012, 9:49
I'll echo the disbelief at Mathilda from Leon being omitted. Also, I would've thrown Azumi into the list.
Aug 16th 2012, 15:43
Hit-Girl is incredible. Hope rumours there is more focus on her in the second Kick a*s are true.
Aug 16th 2012, 17:25
Good list, but Laurie Strode needs to be much hire. Top 5 for sure.
Aug 17th 2012, 12:30
Sydney Prescot anybody??? if you put gale weathers....
Aug 20th 2012, 15:05
Maybe not a heroine of action film standards but in terms of Bravery, Selma from Dance in the Dark would be pretty high on my list.
Aug 22nd 2012, 19:18
I am actually ok with who is on the list just not the order at all. Ripley being number 1 *thumbs up* but there are a lot of people very low on the list that should be higher up and vica versa
Sep 2nd 2012, 20:43
chihiro from spirited away should definitely be on here
Feb 28th 2013, 1:38
what about lily potter?i foundit really brave when she sacrificed her life for harry
