Nothing causes more boners than an action movie — especially when it stars a femme fatale who knows how to handle a gun. Everyone loves a sharp shootinâ€™, straight talkinâ€™ lady whose looks alone could kill, but itâ€™s even better when sheâ€™s actually a trained lethal weapon. In honor of the women who inspire us to fight for our rights (and wear something skin tight), here are The Friskyâ€™s Top 5 Female Action Heroes.
