List Rules Vote up the actresses you find most attractive.

The sexiest women in action movies manage to command the screen with their physical abilities and their acting skills. These are women not to be toyed with, under any circumstances. They're hot, they're highly trained and they'll kick your butt to kingdom come if given the chance. Who is the absolute sexiest woman ever cast in an action movie? That's for you to decide. Vote for your favorites, and vote down those women that you don't think measure up. Also, feel free to add any actress that you think deserves a place of honor on this list!

Some of the sexiest women ever to appear in action movies include the likes of Uma Thurman ('Kill Bill'), Kate Beckinsale ('Underworld'), Angelina Jolie ('Lara Croft,' 'Wanted' and 'Salt') and Milla Jovovich ('Resident Evil'). Those are all shining examples of incredibly gorgeous women who've had sexy roles in several different action movies and/or franchises. Some actresses on this list have only appeared in one or two action films, but they were so smokingly hot they make the cut. Examples, you say? How about Geena Davis in 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' or Demi Moore in 'GI Jane'?

While many of the sexy actresses in action movies appeared in films during the 1970s and 1980s (Pam Grier in 'Foxy Brown,' Linda Hamilton in 'Terminator 2' and of course, Sigourney Weaver in 'Alien'), there are some recent roles worth noting. Jennifer Lawrence's turn as Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' was stellar, Scarlett Johansson was a fantastic Black Widow in 'The Avengers,' MMA star Gina Carano kicked a** in Steven Soderbergh's 'Haywire' and Anne Hathaway promises to make an amazing Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises.'  These are some of the hottest movie actresses from the best female action movies.

Enjoy this list of some of the sexiest women ever to appear in action movies, and be sure to vote (and add anyone that's missing). Or else!
