Banshee: Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) Should be on - Top 10: Female Action Stars

[Top 10 Lists like this are pretty much the opinion of the maker. This list from 2 years ago by Watch Mojo is pretty good but dated. Naturally I have a different opinion of who belongs on the list and ranking; that will come later.  Number 10, Lucy Lawless - Xena Warrior Princess? Jeez are you 12yro.]

 [ The Current List by Watch Mojo
  1. Sigourney Weaver (IMDb)
  2. Uma Thurman (IMDb)
  3. Michelle Yeoh (Wikipedia)
  4. Angelina Jolie (IMDb)
  5. Linda Hamilton (IMDb)
  6. Milla Jovovich (Official)
  7. Kate Beckinsale (IMDb)
  8. Carrie-Anne Moss (IMDb)
  9. Michelle Rodriguez (Official)

The 10th of entry in this list is open, Lucy Lawless (Xena) moved to teen swoon area. Musical chairs I'm ADDING: Ivana Milicevic (IMDb) [Cinemax Banshee's Carrie Hopewell is not a soccer mom. Number 9 moves to 10. Number 3 moves 9. Numbers 4,5 move up one. Numbers 6,7 swap positions and move up one. Ivana Milicevic is inserted into Number 7.

New List the way I think it should be
  1. Sigourney Weaver (IMDb)
  2. Uma Thurman (IMDb)
  3. Angelina Jolie (IMDb)
  4. Linda Hamilton (IMDb)
  5. Kate Beckinsale (IMDb)
  6. Milla Jovovich (Official)
  7.  Ivana Milicevic (IMDb)  NEW
  8. Carrie-Anne Moss (IMDb)
  9. Michelle Yeoh (Wikipedia)
  10. Michelle Rodriguez (Official)
There it is -- #7 is hot stuff. ]

[ Carrie Hopewell 15 years ago - her man is in prison, she is knocked up, along comes Gordon and she sees a safe future for kids. ]

[Eleven years ago.]

[ Fast forward to today. Carrie has to put Rabbit down for endangering, well, everyone. ]

[ Good bye daddy.] ( Longer Unofficial Metalworks Video ) ]



[Carrie is not really a team player. Sometimes she makes exceptions.]

[ Just do what I do. ]

[Carrie is more than enough bad ass for a 7 slot. In season 1 -- 30 minute fight to the death when Rabbit's right hand man tried to stuff her in a car's trunk. Care to guess who died?]

[ Just in case there are doubts about Carrie's "Bad Ass Cred" here is clip where both female leads in the show take care of those foolish enough to cross them. Carrie, in prison, gets the n00b treatment from current "boss" and then .... ouch. At the same time Deputy Siobhan puts her abusive ex-husband away for good. Yippie kai yah ... Oops wrong quote. ]

[ Damn good action by the director. ]

[ (note: Some of the oddness of the playback is do to me dicking FR on purpose. I may replace clip with a normal one.)]
