There’s nothing sexier than a gorgeous babe armed to the teeth (unless she’s pointing her laser submachine gun at you, of course). Even more so if you take into account that, as Hollywood has dictated, heroines must not only carry weapons, but also wear ridiculously hot outfits. It doesn’t matter that, in a life-or-death situation, said outfits would prove as appropriate as a steak knife in a vegetarians’ convention. The truth is that an armed babe (it doesn’t matter if she’s wielding a sword, shooting arrows, or firing a bazooka) can tempt us to watch even the worst excuses for films – like Blood Rayne, for example. But hey, we’re weak and these goddesses are strong and beautiful!
