Hey, remember that incredible compilation video of the best swordfights in cinema history made the rounds a few days ago? Well, the creator of that, the supremely talented video editor Clara Darko, has sent another viral video out there into the world.

This one is an epic supercut of the most badass women in action movies, and it absolutely does not disappoint. Keep your eyes peeled and see if you can name every character in this vid as they kick ass and takes names.

Two characters I'm surprised she didn't include (unless I missed them) are Hit Girl from the Kick-Ass franchise and Maki Mori from Pacific Rim. Personally, I'm most impressed she included Etain, Olga Kurylenko's vengeful Pict warrior from Centurion.

Shout-out to all my blue woad-smeared ladies, heeeeeey. Oh man, esoteric historical humor, always topical—wait, was that awkward silence? That was awkward silence, wasn't it?


Anyway, the video is absolutely dope, and if you can watch it and not feel like running through a brick wall or roundhouse kicking someone in the face after watching it, I just don't know what to do for you.

How many characters can you name? Let me know in the comments!
