Colombiana Reviews

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.
September 14, 2011
Colombiana has one true asset -- the seminude sight of its star, Zoe Saldana -- and milks it for everything it's worth.

Half the dialogue between these dirtbags is devoted to her near-invisibility, and all of it's awful: "She's like mist," apparently.
September 9, 2011
Even the talented Saldana can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear - much less a dog's dinner.
September 8, 2011
Occasionally enjoyable in a silly way, but I have to say Besson's preoccupation with the little-girl-becomes-killer trope is looking a little unwholesome.

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 7, 2011
Tiresome and unconvincing.
September 2, 2011
Colombiana, despite its many explosions and some howlingly wooden dialogue, is an eminently forgettable actioner.
September 1, 2011
Often improbable, sometimes ludicrous, but frequently exciting.

Possibly worth seeing if you are 13.

There's bad acting all around, but you can't fully blame the performers. The dialogue needed a writer to come in and punch it up - the lines sound like placeholders.
August 28, 2011
Colombiana isn't the last word in action movies, but it's a fun ride.
August 28, 2011
Megaton blows things up, demolishes a fruit market, and throws in some parkour foot-chases as if he's completing a checklist.
August 28, 2011
Colombiana isn't completely dreadful, if you ignore the holes in its Swiss cheese of a plot.
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
We all love a steamy pile of frivolous nonsense now and then, but it has to move quickly or we lose interest, like a joke that stops being funny.
August 26, 2011
There's a reason this clunker is being buried at the end of August and wasn't screened for most critics -- it shouldn't screen for most audiences either.
August 26, 2011
Thinly textured and technically proficient, with a cartoonishness that takes it out of the real world.
August 26, 2011
It turns into the same silly stuff we've seen before, a dish of revenge served not so much cold as reheated.
August 26, 2011
Breaking no new ground, "Colombiana" more or less plays it straight.
