Movie Heroines Who Could Break You!

Forget Jolie, Beckinsdale, Jovovich and those glamour-puss “action stars”—we’ve put together a list of 10 heroines who could swab the floor with your candy ass.

Rachel McLish

The pleasantly-muscled IFBB Ms. Olympia champ went on to have a sterling film career in such cinema verite fare as Raven Hawk: a socially-conscious film, produced by Italians, about a Native American woman (McLish, who is Spanish) wreaking revenge on greedy oilmen who framed her for murder because, yeah, they’re greedy oilmen.

Highs: Mucho exploding cars and hilarious 90s-era cell phones, loving CUs of McLish’s striated back muscles, goons getting punched off a speedboat. Lows: No fight scene between a raven and a hawk, as title seems to imply—obviously, a huge disappointment for bird-fight enthusiasts.
