13. O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu), "Kill Bill"
There's the anime prologue, and then the decapitation, and of course, the "House of Blue Leaves" battle centerpiece. O-Ren Ishii had some kick-ass compatriots by her side in "Kill Bill Vol. 1," but how many other female mafia bosses have had RZA songs written about them? After the child's play of the "Charlie's Angels" movies, Liu here was allowed to kick some adult ass with Tarantino.
