    Zoe Bell in “Death Proof”! Also Kim (Tracie Thomas) in same.
    Laurie Jupiter in “Watchmen” holds her own.
    Karen Walden (Meg Ryan) in Courage Under Fire.
    Perhaps Celie Johnson (Whoopi Goldberg) in Color Purple.
    Gotta agree with you on Beckinsale, of course!

I would love to hear your thoughts...
