Regardless, many publications list Selene as one of the top ass-kicking heroines. She slayed over the course of an entire series and was featured as the main protagonist in every movie except the prequel "Rise of the Lycans," which used archival footage of her character.
Selene is Beckinsale's most iconic role, and although Ripley from the "Aliens" franchise paved the way, Selene's ability to kick Lycan butt has taken the hybrid action-horror genre to the next level.
Jovovich might be retiring her iconic role as Alice, a former security operative who fights the Umbrella Corporation, that company caused the Zombie Apocalypse—but in the final chapter, she's the only survivor following the events of "Retribution." She returned to where it all began: the Hive in Raccoon City, as the franchise came full circle.
Like Beckinsale, Jovovich has cemented herself as one of pop culture's most memorable female heroines. But it's time to settle if Alice is more kick-ass than Selene, once and for all. If anything is for sure, Alice was featured in more commercially successful films than Selene.
