Check out the first action-packed trailer for Zoe Saldana’s “Colombiana”, from director (and producer/writer Luc Besson protege) Olivier Megaton of “Transporter 3” fame. Hopefully the movie itself won’t be full of the ADD-heavy editing that makes up most of the trailer. Saldana certainly looks at home as a badass assassin, but then again, after “The Losers”, you probably aren’t too surprise she’s able to pull this off without breaking a sweat. It’s also amusing that the “pretty girl next door” who makes our anti-hero want a better life is a guy in this one.
A young woman grows up to be a stone-cold assassin after witnessing her parents’ murder as a child in Bogota. She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target – the mobster responsible for her parents’ death.
Also starring Lennie James, Michael Vartan, Marshall Warren, Callum Blue, Jordi Mollà, Max Martini, Sam Douglas, and Monica Acosta.
The lady demands a slice of payback September 2, 2011.
