In the action film Colombiana, Zoe Saldana plays Cataleya, a young woman who has grown up to be an assassin after witnessing the murder of her parents as a child. Turning herself into a professional killer and working for her uncle, she remains focused on her ultimate goal: to hunt down and get revenge on the mobster responsible for her parents' deaths. This movie was directed by the worst action director that you will ever see in your life, because the action at parts was all over the place but Zoe Saldana was good in the movie.

Thanks to some glossy and well engineered set pieces, one of which is clearly influenced by Besson's classic Leon, Colombiana is always entertaining but it lacks the imagination and invention of his best films. Not bad at all, but it's not quite …
