I think (possibly obviously) the first film I saw her in was The Fast and the Furious (2001) as Letty and I love everything about her and that character as the series progresses. Letty is a great character who is just as good as the guys but also has her moments of vulnerability.
S.W.A.T. (2003) is not exactly a great film but I can’t help but like it. I mean it has some of my favourite actors in it like Michelle Rodriguez, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson and has some great action pieces. Michelle was also in Avatar (2009) and she was my favourite character in the film.
Michelle Rodriguez’s first film was Girlfight (2000) which I haven’t seen and only recently heard of it. It sounds like a great film full of different female characters and it’s both written and directed by a woman so I definitely want to watch it soon as it’ll go towards my go of watching more women-made films.
