Action Movie Daughters Always Get Hot

November 9, 2010

Every movie genre follows certain clichés and formulas, but one of my favorites is the action movie daughter (wow that makes me sound creepy). But I think you know what I mean. Our lead character is a macho cop/mercenary/soldier/sheriff/spy who happens to have an adorable daughter who proves to be convenient hostage-bait around the 75-minute mark. But moving beyond that cliché, I noticed that many of the girls who played these daughters went on to illustrious careers as actresses and Maxim magazine centerfolds. Some of these examples are from the most beloved action films of the ’80s and ’90s, while others are a bit more obscure.

Let’s see what became of our heroes’ female offspring…

Commando – Jenny, the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character…

Under Siege 2 – Sarah, the daughter of Steven Seagal’s character…
