Quentin Tarantino claimed that “girls will have a dose of girl power” from watching his 2003 classic Kill Bill, and no character in the movie literally cuts to the quick better than The Bride, played by Uma Thurman. An angry dame with a penchant for revenge served at sub-zero temperatures, The Bride uses blade, fist and miscellaneous sharp items lying around to exact righteous vengeance on her enemies. Still, while it was awesome to see Uma punch a man in the chest until his heart explodes, it’s the combination of female and firearm that arguably holds the greatest allure throughout the history of cinema. Many of the movies that best utilize this delectable mix are of the “B” variety, although there are a few examples of blockbusters pairing lipstick with smoking barrels to great effect, too. Either way, holster your pistol as we celebrate super-strong females everywhere – with a list of the 10 most iconic girls with guns in movies.
