Profile: When I first started writing this column, I did so knowing that I would have to watch many films. I had a head start with the first three (Schwarzeneggar, Willis and Stallone), but with Jason Statham and now Milla Jovovich, and other profiles in the future, I have created a task bigger than I expected. A process consisting of sifting through films, choosing the ones that were must-sees and ones that would be good supplements, queue-ing them up, and waiting impatiently at the mailbox. Then to strengthen the blow, I sat through films that no one should ever have to watch, films with little to no redeeming qualities. This is an action star column, and I am aware of the odious amounts of cinematic fluff that would come my way, but I always expected decent action at the very least. Something that provoked me on at least a visceral level, that made whoop and holler, and instilled me with the confidence to crush my enemies under my boot heel.
