It comes down to two:

Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) in Aliens or Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) in Terminator and T2.

Princess Leia is a distant third.

Any others?

Oh you poor people. Michelle Yeoh is hands down the Best Female Action hero. To think anything otherwise is to proclaim thy ignorance from the top of the world!

True, and besides being an absolute knockout, she is also an absolute gem of a person- completely cool and normal.

Plus, with the Malaysian/HK-accented English, she's pretty much the whole package.

You know what amazes me about her? Her grace and presence on screen (and I'm assuming off. Watching Reign of Assassins I coulda sworn she shot that back to back with Crouching Tiger as she seemingly hadn't aged a day. But the way she carries herself makes her a diamond despite not having "drop dead" gorgeous looks.

She is a diamond and a real sweetheart. And I would absolutely call her gorgeous. No doubt.
