With Sarah Conner, sorry the movie's draw was never Sarah. Really its the underworld, resident evil films that have a female driven lead, but those were originally fairly low cost films, that continued by aiming low.
Isn't it sad though that it's so hard to even come up with a single comparable movie? The only action movie with a woman as the (only) lead character in recent memory that wasn't a cheaply made B movie and/or terrible (by general consensus) is "The Hunger Games". And since that was a HUGE success (highest-grossing non-sequel of the year so far), is there really a good reason why studios seem to continue to be so reluctant to finance big female-driven movies?
