Zoe Saldana's charisma not withstanding, Colombiana is the female equivalent of a Jason Statham film, i.e. badass but bland.

Acclaimed writer Luc Besson (The Professional, Taken, The Fifth Element) co-writes another action-packed movie that even with a few outrageous moments is still a smart, sexy thriller with a good story that propels Saldana's star power.

[Zoe Soldana's] cheekbones may take our breath away, but so do her martial arts chops.
July 15, 2016
Given the acrobatic fight skills Zoe Saldana displayed in Avatar, and since producer Luc Besson's stock-in-trade is the female assassin film, 'Colombiana' was a match made in She-Terminator heaven.

A guilty pleasure film that is more fun than it deserves to be.

You keep wanting "Colombiana" to go all the way in one direction, or all the way in the other. Instead, it just sits there, content to give Saldana a lollypop.

February 28, 2013
Colombiana contains some thrilling scenes as well as an interesting sense of twisted humor, but there's not enough here to really keep us engaged.

Laugh out loud exploitation...See Zoe shoot. See Zoe kill. See Zoe strip (PG-13 style)
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Colombiana is caught somewhere in the middle of an engaging character drama and a brainless action extravaganza.

With a tighter story and structure, most of the film's problems could have been easily fixed, resulting in a film that doesn't feel like a build-up of superfluous events.

April 6, 2012
Ranks as one of the more eco- and econ-friendly projects of recent memory, what with producer/co-writer Luc Besson recycling many elements from his prior successes.

January 29, 2012
The action set pieces are elaborately staged and sometimes exciting, but the dull script, overcooked direction and wonky editing damage this otherwise enjoyable B-movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

"Colombiana" never even considers that what Cataleya has devoted her life to doing might not be entirely justified and that what she does might make her just as evil as the people who wronged her.

December 22, 2011
A fast-paced tale of revenge, 'Colombiana' is a better-than-average actioner made all the more interesting by its female lead. Zoe Saldana ('Star Trek' and 'Avatar') follows the path of 'Hanna' and 'Salt' as a tough-as-nails assassin.

The latest disappointing actioner from producer Luc Besson...

September 16, 2011
Overall, the movie has enough clever chases, break-ins, and escapes -- not to mention a sweet, small tragic romance -- to make it worthwhile, but this isn't one of Besson's stronger efforts.

Colombiana has one true asset -- the seminude sight of its star, Zoe Saldana -- and milks it for everything it's worth.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 12, 2011
A cynical mash-up of Besson's Leon and Nikita, though without their depth of character or emotional warmth.

It's as slick as an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, as fast-moving as hurricane Emily and as memorable as an episode of The A-Team.
