12 Action Heroes Who Could Save You From Anything

Some characters don't need special powers to bring the pain. They're pretty unbelievable, just like William Levy dressing up as six different characters to give you a Pepsi NEXT for free.

Posted on

1. James Bond

Eon Productions / Via

Because he doesn't really age (thanks, recasting!), 007 has more experience being a badass than anyone ever.

2. Ellen Ripley

20th Century Fox / Via

She’ll take out any alien that tries to wreak havoc on your spaceship. And even if the alien queen is erupting from her chest, she’ll just sacrifice herself by diving into a furnace (only to be resurrected later).

3. Indiana Jones

Lucasfilm / Via

He's had enough experience outrunning insane boulders and recovering impossible-to-recover artifacts to handle anything.

4. Katniss Everdeen

Lionsgate / Via

She not only won the 74th annual Hunger Games, she did it while keeping a basically immobile Peeta alive the entire time.

5. Dirty Harry

Warner Bros. / Via

Sometimes when you need saving, you need someone who gives zero flips about the law.

6. Lara Croft

Paramount Pictures / Via

Whether in the flesh or the pixels, she's equally badass.

7. Officer John McClane

20th Century Fox / Via

Out of all action heros, he has the most experience of dealing with terrorist attacks that happen during national holidays.

8. Hit-Girl

Lionsgate / Via

This is the only eleven-year-old girl to trust with your life. Just give her something sharp (or a handgun) and she can defeat a small army of grown men.

9. Agent J

Columbia Pictures / Via

With the Noisy Cricket, or some other weaponry, he was more than able to take down several alien invasions (and maybe more but we just remember this flash of light happening and not much else).

10. Chief Inspector Lee

New Line Cinema / Via

If you were trapped inside a burning vehicle that was speeding across a crumbling bridge, Lee would be able to pull you out with a single cartwheel. Seriously, the laws of physics/gravity don’t really apply to this human.

11. Ethan Hunt

Paramount Pictures / Via

They keep giving him these things called Mission Impossible, but it doesn't really seem that impossible if he's able to successfully complete it every time.

12. The Bride

Miramax Films / Via

No one does revenge better. After being put in a coma for years, she methodically assassinates the assassins who put her there. And yes, the title is one giant spoiler because she does actually Kill Bill.
