Besson missed his opportunity to make another classic with a Leon sequel. Big mistake! Huge! People really cared about Mathilda and her life going forward. The storylines were endless. A marvelous film could have been made.
That being said, this movie, Columbiana, should never have been made. It's just a mundane Jolie movie without Jolie. The story sucks, the setting sucks, the performers suck, and seeing as how it will be forever rightfully maligned as just a spinoff attempt with negative comparisons to a classic, I predict a short run. Unnecessary waste of time and money.

Leon is a timeless classic. It will never be forgotten. Natalie Portman has never, and will never give a better performance. This movie is her Breakfast At Tiffany's. I knew the moment Leon opened the door for her, she was going to be special.
Great film encompassing every emotion known to man, great action, and characters you really care about. 100/100 stars
