9Alice (Resident Evil series)

That was a good one

10Marge Gunderson (Fargo)

The Contenders

11Susan Cooper (Spy)
12Elizabeth Sherman (Hellboy II)
13Trinity (Matrix series)

Her amazing comeback such as "Dodge this." Or "Touch me, and that hand will never touch anything again."

14Hit-Girl (Kick-Ass series)

Most badass moment; this 11-year old girl appears at the bad guys' hideout in a schoolgirl outfit, and Enrico Morricone music starts playing in the background, so you feel it coming.
She calmly kills the 3 adult male guards, including an ice-cold finish shot.

15April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
16Miho (Sin City)

Very cool film and Miho is really a badass!

17Mikaela Banes (Transformers)

She may be eye candy, but she's useful eye candy. She rescued Sam and herself from the Secret Service, repaired Bumblebee mid-battle so he could fight, actively went undercover to infiltrate someplace, and saved Sam from a Pretender by ramming into it with her car.

I'll give Carly for standing up to Megatron, but that's pretty much all she was good for. - SourNote2014

Sorry about the Ninja Turtles item, it should be April O'Neil not just Megan Fox.

18Susan Murphy (Monsters vs. Aliens)
19Leeloo (The Fifth Element)
20Carolyn McAdams (Flight of the Navigator)

Can't get much better than Sarah Jessica Parker on Flight of the Navigator as a NASA intern. - RockFashionista
