Can’t really say it much better than Endswell, who says, “the version of me that saw The Professional, the version of me that saw Taken, and every version of me that has seen Zoe Saldana do anything are high-fiving the shit out of each other right now.”
Or Russ Fischer, “this plays like an alternate version of the O-Ren Ishii story from Kill Bill, filtered through Luc Besson’s own particular interests. And that’s probably fine, mostly because Zoe Saldana looks perfectly competent as a troubled, determined and lithe killer.”
A young woman grows up to be a stone-cold assassin after witnessing her parents’ murder as a child in Bogota. She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target – the mobster responsible for her parents’ death.
Hits theaters on September 2nd.
Also? How much would a sequel to The Professional be with a grown up Natalie Portman kicking ass? Just throwing that out there.
