Most badass action-horror heroine: Selene or Alice?
There's nothing like a kick-ass female lead. And in the last decade, Selene from the "Underworld" series and Alice from the "Resident Evil" series have taken the action-horror genre to the next level.
"Underworld: Blood Wars" hit theaters on Jan. 7. In the sequel, Selene is now trying to end a war between the vampires and the Lycans. The movie is loved by fans, although hated by critics. Regardless, many publications list Selene is one of the top ass-kicking heroines. She has slayed over the course of an entire series. She's featured as the main protagonist in every movie except the prequel "Rise of the Lycans," which uses archival footage of the character. Selene is Beckinsale's most iconic role, and although Ripley from the "Aliens" franchise paved the way—Selene's ability to kick Lycan ass has taken the hybrid action-horror genre to the next level.
"Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" drops on January 27. And in the sixth installment, Alice still looks as badass as ever! Jovovich might be retiring her iconic role as Alice, a former security operative who fights against her ex-employer, the Umbrella Cooperation, that caused the Zombie Apocalypse. In the final chapter, she's the only survivor following the events of "Retribution." She returns to where it all began—the Hive in Raccoon City. The Umbrella Corporation is planning one last strike against the remaining survivors of the Zombie apocalypse. But the survivors have the badass Alice on their side. 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 has kicked ass in more successful films than Selene.
