** And arguably Naveen Andrews as well, since he played the consummate BadAss on ''Series/{{Lost}}''--even [[spoiler:coming BackFromTheDead at one point, although not [[CameBackWrong in a good way]]]], and in this he [[spoiler:dies very early on.]]

* [[SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou Jodie Foster Is About To Shoot You]] - The DVD cover, as shown above. However, in yet another subversion of the genre, her stare is far more focal than the barrel of the gun.

Erica Bain (Creator/JodieFoster) is a confident, content, reasonably left-wing radio host, madly in love with [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity the city of New York]] and her fiancee David (Creator/NaveenAndrews). Sadly, [[spoiler:he is killed and she is beaten within an inch of her life by a gang of thugs in Central Park one night]]. Emotionally shattered and incapable of feeling safe in the city she once adored, Erica buys a gun and attempts to move on. Fate has other plans, however, as she begins to encounter situation after situation that leave her with no choice but to blow somebody away. As the reputation of the mysterious vigilante begins to rise, Erica is torn between genuine disgust at her reluctant actions and the savage pleasure of dealing out first-hand justice to the blatantly deserving.
