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.

In the scene where Cataleya rams into the police car, it is in a place outside New Orleans called Fat City. The bar Uncle Larry's, was actually a real bar at the time but is no longer there. Also in the scene, briefly, you can see a sign for Circle K and a split second later you see Brother's; it's actually the same building. The gas station was under construction during filming and Brother's had bought the Circle K franchise. See more »
The phone used by Danny Delanay to take a picture of Cataleya is an Apple iPhone 3G or 3GS. The older model was released only in 2008, while the movie takes place in 2007. See more »

If you watch Movies like this you want a lot of Cool Action, stylish presentation, and an energy driven scenario that is a Comic Book like other place. This one has all that. Not very intelligent or plausible or much to think about, just a visceral ride for a mind-numbing couple of hours.
This is a slick and entertaining Girl With Guns romp, a favorite Character from Writer Luc Besson. His Films have a wide appeal and have varying degrees of success both as Art and as Entertainment. His best work is miles above his contemporaries and his worst is better than average.
This one falls in between. It is Artistic and will please Fans of the Genre, but does not rate as near his best. It is above average in its frantic display of rampaging revenge and glossy fights that are appealing as flights of fancy. Not much here is believable in any real sense, but that is the attraction of Comic Books. Luc Besson owes much to that format and Artform. He is a Writer/Director who pays his debts.
