Gabe Toro, of Indiewire’s “The Playlist” calls In The Blood a film with "breathtaking action”, while Steve (Capone) Propkopy of Ain’t It Cool News raves: "Gina Carano is a destructive, fearsome force of nature, and poised to be the biggest action star – male or female – on the planet. I can't wait to see what she does next!"
To be honest I could of made a list of 30 or more films because there are a lot that deserved to be on this list but I decided to just keep it at ten and mix it up a little. As you can see some of these are not horror films but they are still excellent movies that are worth checking out. I also decided to rank any so they are listed in no particular order because they are all excellent movies that I really enjoyed.
