'Colombiana' Trailer (Video)

Zoe Saldana shoots and blows things up real nice in this just-released trailer for Colombiana, which sees Saldana grow up to be an assassin after witnessing her parents' murder as a child.

From the writers of The Professional and La Femme Nikita comes a movie that is exactly like The Professional and La Femme Nikita. Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, guess we'll have to see the movie. Heck, I'll see it just to see Saldana in action.

But Luc Besson, who co-wrote and co-produced Colombiana as well as those those 1990s action landmarks that made his career, can do these slick revenge action movies in his sleep at this stage. They are fun romps but I'd like to see a bit more of the Besson who did The Fifth Element.

Maybe he is taking the trailer's oft-repeated tagline - "Never forget where you came from" - a bit too literally.
