Mexican American iconoclast Robert Rodriguez writes his female characters strong, fit and ready to rumble. Whether they're holding massive weapons (Michelle Rodriguez in Machete) or wearing them (Sofia Vergara's machine-gun bra in Machete Kills), you best not mess with Rodriguez's ladies. His latest flick, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, starring Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, promises to be full of badass chicas once again.
