51. Tomb Raider Chronicles - GIRL POWER COMES WITH A HEFTY PRICE
In the opening moments of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, Angelina Jolie gets to discover an underwater treasure trove, escape from terrorists, punch a shark in the nose and ride to safety on its fin. She's not to be messed with - nor are the ladies of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, a trio of high-flying, butt-kicking women who dole out punishment to anyone who deserves it. Both summer movies provide a superhero picture of female empowerment, an image of ''girl power'' that matches up with the manly deeds of male action heroes.
