Summary: I am giving this an 8, although it might be a 7, about the only bad thing I can say about the movie is that, yes, the plot is somewhat of a rehashed, predictable type of thing. However, Saldana is both sexy and charming and dangerous from the moment she shows up drunk in a tight dress.
Summary: In the action film Colombiana, Zoe Saldana plays Cataleya, a young woman who has grown up to be an assassin after witnessing the murder of her parents as a child.

Excerpt: The young daughter of a cartel enforcer is orphaned when her parents are murdered by his former boss and seeks sanctuary in the US where she grows to become an assassin sworn to avenge them. Luc Besson rehashes the formula of Nikita in this flashy but generic action thriller in his trademark style.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Zoe Saldana has some action chops, but the film is simply hampered by a PG-13 rating. For a movie this violent, it feels a bit... weak. Plus the whole revenge thing has been done ad nausea before. Still, for an action fix, it does the trick, just don't expect it to stick with you.
Excerpt: Ik vond deze film goed. De actie en spanning die er opgebouwd wordt is duidelijk voelbaar. De jonge Cataleya komt apart over omdat ze zo jong is en dan toch al zo volwassen in haar doen, denken en spreken.
Excerpt: Colombiana is a high-octane action/adventure that feels like it could be a sequel to The Professional. In fact Luc Besson who wrote that movie, writes this one. Zoe Saldana is perfectly cast as she slithers and shoots her way through the 90mins of film. This flick is a lot of fun and pretty bad-ass.
