Okay here goes ... people are going to just hate me for leaving my comment and saying what I'm about to say about this movie but I have to be honest and this is just "my" opinion and well that's what these reviews are all about. My somewhat negative opinion should count just as much as the positive ones out there.
So here goes:
I just watched the movie on STARZ last night and have to admit it's very very high strung edge of your seat adrenaline rush high octane entertaining but ... that's about it!
Now we all know this is Hollywood fun fantasy entertainment but that's where the buck stops. Come on! In REAL LIFE there's no way in a million years a woman like this (size etc...) even with Navy Seals training behind her could do EVERY LAST thing (fight scenes/stunts) she did in this movie especially against very prominent trained overly protected/ guarded Drug Cartel in Latin America as shown in the movie. Maybe Stallone or Jean Claude could do "some" of what was shown but not everything she did. For me, that alone took away from the movie :(
Once more and lastly ... GREAT movie for pure entertainment only! Otherwise, if you're thinking along the same lines as me and being a bit too literal and serious in your thinking and analyzing about what she can do and can't do when it comes to real life then by all means don't get this movie or it will drive you crazy. I liked it cause I actually got a few laughs out of it! Not only for the ridiculous moves she did but also from some of the actors in the movie - certain lines they'd say or things they'd do. But please know this is NOT a comedy. It's very serious and very violent in nature. Def. don't take your kids to see this one! Whew! No! No! No!
I do recommend this movie just for the "fun" of it. But that's it. Still - very violent and in today's society especially in lieu with what just took place at the Batman movie opening in Colorado. So because of it that alone and just recently, I don't think this is a good movie to watch or recommend. At least for now.
I love the architecture and cinematography in this movie especially the camera angles during the running and action scenes. Best part - the Shark Pool under the glass tiles in the enclosed courtyard of the fat Drug Cartel's mansion. Totally awesome! If I were super rich I would certainly want to invest in something like that myself. Way too cool! Some beautiful creatures! But I have to admit I'd be kind of afraid to walk across it myself for fear of it cracking or breaking! :) Yipes!!!
With this said ... buy or rent this movie for the high octane entertainment of it but not from a "real true life" perspective. Would have to be 'super human' especially as a woman to do what Zoe did in this movie. Thank God for Hollywood! :)
Actually hope there's a PART II to this one. She got on the bus and rode off into the sunest ... okay now what???
PART 2 please! :) And ... Hope her and her artisit boyfriend are married in the 2nd one.
Simply allow yourself to be drawn into an amazing tale of a young girl's exposure to terror and her transformation into an avenger. Amandla Stenberg, the young actress portraying Cataleya as a girl was impressive. Her ability to depict so much bravery and determination through her magnetic, intense eyes will draw you into her world immediately. Obviously, she grows up and fifteen years after her horrible experience, she sets upon an incredible journey of pure payback. The movie keeps moving - you won't doze through this one! Incredible acting and photography packs a one-two punch that will keep your attention throughout Colombiana's 108 minute run time. No doubt about it, Zoe Saldana is a fascinating, beautiful and strong actress who nailed her role as the adult assassin the little girl had become. At the movie's conclusion, Johnny Cash sings a stunning song that anchors down the cost Cataleya has paid for her dark journey.
Great movie!! It's action packed and keeps you on the edge of your seat!
Zoe plays leading role well.
Definitely worth seeing.
Great Movie! Great theme, non stop action with original ideal with the plot. Anyone interested or on the fence about purchasing this movie, don't be. It's worth any price you will pay and then some!!!!
Great action movie from beginning to end! I have watched it several times!! Suspense, action, drama all are wonderful!!
I had to own this film, its bad ass, and genus, if you like action/thrillers you'll want to see and watch this film over and over, Zoe Saldana played this part very good.
I thought this was a good movie; with plenty of action, and a good storyline. Zoe Saldana played a great role. Tony D
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Modern day Payback. I could see this little skinny woman beating the crap outa some guy that thinks she's harmless. When she finds her prey, she is ruthless.

All I can say is this movie was one of the best that I have seen in the past six months. I want to watch it again.
