3. Columbiana (2010)

Zoe Saldana is an amazing action star with several impressive credits within the genre, including her time on Pandora in Avatar and as Uhura in the rebooted Star Trek cinema franchise. But that isn’t the only highest-grossing film of all time; she has been featured as a relentless force not to be messed with as she has also kicked the crap out of a ton of bad guys as the jade warrior Gamora in several MCU adventures, including Avengers: Endgame. While those all are exceptional endeavors, Saldana is truly at her best is the vengeance filled action-fest Columbiana that is absolutely a perfect next-in-line after watching Ava on Netflix.

Saldana gives a remarkable turn as Cataleya showcasing powerful emotion within her badass performance, adding significant value to this underrated action flick. The chart-topping Netflix ordeal follows her character Cataleya who, after witnessing her parents’ death, trains until she is old enough when she embarks on a mission to take out everyone in the food chain up to the big boss that killed her mother and father. Columbiana should be revered as a classic of the genre and is one film that will most assuredly not disappoint subscribers.
