Even if you have never watched a scene from the cinematic blockbuster Avatar, there is no way that you haven’t enjoyed the energetic acting of Zoe Saldana in at least one of the other high grossing action flicks she has starred in (e.g. the newest edition to the Star Trek franchise, The Losers, or Takersto name a few). Saldana has proven time and again she has the superb performance talent and physical agility that just may catapult her on the way to becoming this generation’s next female action super star.

This time Saldana is headlining the title role in the new action thriller Colombiana. Under the tagline ‘Vengeance is Beautiful’, what could be more beguiling for hard action movie lovers and fans of female empowerment alike than the cool combination of a sultry woman who knows how to handle herself? The plot centers around a young woman who witnesses the horrific murder of her parents when she is only a small child. The shock from the terrifying experience draws her into a life as a highly skilled female assassin who is ultimately seeking to avenge her parents’ deaths. Cataleya Restrepo of Bogota, Columbia grows up with cold-hearted vengeance on her mind. While working as a lethal assassin for her uncle, Cataleya also carries out a list of vengeance killings that she hopes will bring her closer to finding out the identity of the culprit behind her parents’ brutal demise. Still shots from the movie show Saldana handling some massive weaponry while on her quest to seek out those who changed the path of her character’s life forever. 

Colombiana co-stars Michael Vartan (best known from TNT’s ‘Hawthorne‘ and the now canceled spy drama ‘Alias‘) as the love interest for Saldana’s character. In the theatrical trailer, the cute pair spark quite a flame during the quick glimpse of their love scene. The movie also features striking new actressAmandla Stenberg, who will next be seen in the highly anticipated 2012 film, The Hunger Games. The action drama was directed by Olivier Megaton and is scheduled for release on August 26th 2011.
