This action film follows the sexy, vengeful contract killer Cataleya (Zoe Saldana), named after a Colombian orchid, signing her victims with lipstick. After a well-handled prologue gives us Cataleya as a child (Amandla Stenberg) witnessing the assassination of her next of kin by crime boss Don Luis (Beto Benites), we catch up with the beautiful adult Cataleya, now a hit-woman working for her uncle. The action sequences are effective, and Saldana is able to not only exude ruthlessness and sexiness, but also sympathy.
