Some solid ass kicking action to back up what the script lacks.
September 8, 2017
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.
June 30, 2013
A guilty pleasure film that is more fun than it deserves to be.

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 is every bit as slick and silly as you'd expect, but Saldana pulls off her far-fetched assassin with panache, whether wriggling through a police station's air ducts in a latex cat suit or dispatching a crook with his own pet sharks.

Colombiana wants to be Bourne with boobs, but its connect-the-dots narrative and silted script means it can't quite reach those bone-crunching heights.
September 1, 2011
Often improbable, sometimes ludicrous, but frequently exciting.
August 31, 2011
Director Olivier Megaton has mastered the art of balancing absurdity with conviction, both in his montages and his choices on the soundtrack.

Colombiana isn't the last word in action movies, but it's a fun ride.
August 28, 2011
It works well enough as a revenge movie, thanks to some good performances, some good action sequences and some Mission Impossible-like tactical operations.
August 27, 2011
Luc Besson's pulp-fiction assembly line churns out another adequate ass-kicker with Colombiana, which boasts many of the French producer-director's favorite tropes.
August 27, 2011
Oozing female empowerment, acrobatic Zoe Saldana is the new action star to watch.
August 26, 2011
The best way to describe the action packed film 'Colombiana' is to say to that it's mindless, unpretentious, very stylized, and entertaining. It's your typical B film brought to the big screen by the power and influence of Luc Besson.
August 26, 2011
If you like stylized fights, spent shotgun shells hitting the floor in slow-mo, and things done blown up real good, Megaton's your man and this is your film. (Full Content Parental Review also available)

Zoe Saldana makes being an action hero look so easy in "Colombiana," you have to wonder why more actresses don't try it.
August 25, 2011
Colombiana is often preposterous but never boring.
August 25, 2011
This is a showy flower of an action film. Saldana doesn't get much of a chance to emote, but her action skills blossom.
