(Gives a prison pounding to "Atomic Blonde", action-wise, story-wise; epic badassery) : it's the long delayed sequel to Léon/The Professional. Too bad Natalie Portman was always involved in ther films and could never commit to shoot this with Besson. I would have died if i saw Mathilda smoking guys the easy Cateleya does. Zoe Saldana's finest hour.
Facto imdb: O filme foi baseado num script inicialmente definido para ser uma sequela de Léon: The Professional. A história teria como foco a personagem Mathilda (Natalie Portman) perseguindo personagens que teriam prejudicado o caminho de Léon e da própria.
There's nothing more entertaining than kids wanting to be assassins....... in movies. Well, nothing sick about it when you just want to see it in a fantasy. Zoe Saldana is fierce and savage. She is a believable killing machine. She showed some great acting and convincing martial arts skills. Screw your bad reviews. I'm totally impressed. Great flick!
A very pleasant surprise. Zoe Saldana carries this action film on her little shoulders with more charisma and flair than most of her male contempories. The film delivers on the action throughout especially the opening chase through the favela and the brutal hand to hand fight near the completion. The film make objectify Saldana a little too often but she certainly wears her action heroine mantle well.
Zoe Saldana makes for a compelling action lead, but the film surrounding her, about an assassin out for revenge against the drug lords who killed her parents when she was a child, is the very definition of lackluster. Lazy writing, poor sound design, and plot holes the size of Argentina characterize this bland, generic revenge thriller.
Definitely the weakest film I can remember Luc Besson having his name attached to. Terrible dialogue, poor direction and editing during action scenes, violence neutered by the PG-13 rating...and nobody as charismatic as Liam Neeson to keep your interest. You can sell tickets by having Zoe Saldana in her underwear but you can't carry a 90 minute movie.
