5. Nikita (Anna Parillaud, La Femme Nikita)
Let’s be honest—most of these onscreen femme fatales stole their swag from this French film assassin. Though an American version of La Femme Nikita was released, it failed in comparison to the original, and that was impart to Anna Darallaud’s badass performance. Nikita not only oozes sex appeal, she is probably one of the most calculated film criminals of all-time. In fact, she takes to killing like a fish to water—murdering a diplomat in a crowded restaurant and heading back to headquarters without a scratch on her. Now that’s the type of woman you yearn to touch.
