Its a good action movie. It does not try to be anything more.
The girl in the movie uses her stealth, technique and meticulous planning to achieve her killings. Its believable, more than a 007 movie. It doesn't show her beating up guys 4 times her size with ease. Or she protecting her boyfriend, etc. They have avoided a lot of clichés, that in itself is a good thing.
The movie is in English, but people and the accent is all Colombian and this sort of brings down the quality of the movie. Its as if it was dubbed into English from another language.
Again, the action was good, and there was good style, people who love action will appreciate it.
Not totally satisfied with Zoe Saldana's acting. Something amiss. Normally the Japanese movies of this type of action, the girl has a certain style, here I think Zoe might be doing a Columbian style, so I may not be appreciating it, or maybe I have got too used to the Asian styles. :-)............
Worth it. Much better than Transformers 3. :-)................. The story of Colombiana is pretty standard, but it comes from a writer and director that I like very consistently: Luc Besson. I've been following him more or less ever since he wrote and directed one of my personal favorites; Leon: The Professional. He also did The 5th Element and a bunch of other stuff I really liked, even the transporter trilogy, which admittedly isn't the most intricate storytelling ever, but its still a lot of fun.
But anyhow about the movie: it's got good acting, solid action, and reasonably good pacing. Some parts are a bit far fetched, but that's par for the course with a Luc Besson production. It is a little on the short side at an hour and forty minutes (most movies these days being 2 hours or longer) and that's good because it gets straight to the point and doesn't waste your time with a bunch of superfluous junk.
Admittedly there are a few shortcomings in the plot development and it feels a bit rushed and while that would be crippling for most films, it only ends up being a minor hindrance in this case. Some of this could be attributed to director Olivier Megaton (I thought that last name was funny too =P, if you've played fallout 3 anyway). He directed Transporter 3, which was a perfectly competent popcorn flick, but I think Colombiana needed a little more finesse than that to really be a success and sadly it just ends up being OK.
One thing I will say strongly in this movie's favor is that it has one of the most brutal and convincing hand to hand combat sequences I have ever seen. I really can't do it justice with words, you just have to see it for yourself.
Don't bother seeing this one in theaters, but definitely add it to your netflix queue. A movie so addicted to the crack pipe of delirious cinematic badness that it has real potential as a camp classic. "The Fade Out Line" by Phoeboe Killdeer & The Short Straws. There are three versions: the U.S. theatrical, the international, and an unrated cut targeted for so-called home theater use in the States. The US theatrical version is most censored to obtain its PG-13 rating (for violence, disturbing images, intense sequences of action, sexuality and brief strong language). It has not been made available for home cinema use. Beside it's US theatrical release, the PG-13 version is only available as rental DVD in the USA or as Video on Demand. It has been heavily censored from its original version.
The European theatrical version was longer, leaving some intensive scenes. The Unrated version is approximately four minutes longer than the international version and features some extended action and story sequences. a5c7b9f00b
