Angela Joie? Jennifer Lawrence? Lucy Liu?
How about Michelle Yeoh? That’s who Jon Lisi argues is the world’s greatest women action star in his post for Popmatters.
Yeoh has a number of action films to her credit both in Hong Kong and the United States.
She co-starred with Jackie Chan in Police Story 3 in 1992. Quentin Tarantino called Yeoh’s stunt of jumping a motorcycle onto a moving train one of the greatest stunts ever.
Yeoh’s first breakthrough in the US market was as a James Bond girl in Tomorrow Never Dies in 1997.
Then of course there’s the classic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Ang Lee’s much celebrated film from 2000.
