Zoe Saldana (Avatar) swaps cerulean skin and mountain banshees for a spandex suit and firearms in Colombiana, a vengeance tale produced by filmmaker Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, The Professional). After watching her parents’ murder in Bogota as a little girl, Saldana’s character grows up to be a hardened assassin who’s bent on getting even with the mobster responsible. Along the way, she gets caught up in a few side projects (i.e., killing people who might be in cahoots with her target man), as well as an apparent romance (Michael Vartan of Alias). Watch the gunplay and roundhouse kicks below:
