Colombiana Trailer: Zoe Saldana Kicks, Shows Ass

By

At the end of the trailer for Colombiana (directed by the delightfully named Olivier Megaton), title cards begin to spell out the movie's tagline while a revenge-seeking Zoe Saldana fires guns and seduces Michael Vartan. "Vengeance ... Is .... " Hers? Swift? Brutal? No, says the final title card: "Beautiful." And it's followed by a shot of Saldana suggestively sucking on a lollipop — oh, so it's going to be that kind of movie. As the New York Times recently noted, this is the year of the gun-toting, violent screen woman, but is that kind of equal time a strong step forward or simply fetishistic? When Jason Statham's trailers declare, "Revenge ... Is .... Hunky," maybe we'll know for sure.
