James' Review of Colombiana

3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Female leads are the best, especially in action roles, empowerment comes across and strength too! Zoe Saldana deserves an award for Best Actress or Goddess of action, she can kick ass and deliver a gripping performance all in one. Colombiana is beautifully shot, executed with cool direction and packed with tense escape scenes, brutal fight sequences and is filled to the brim with all the guns and explosions you could ever want. This movie is about Cataleya, a young and talented killer on a path of revenge determined to finish off her parent's killers. Amandla Stenberg who plays Young Cataleya is sweet and amazing, such young talent and she alone propels the opening act. One big positive about this film is the cast. Zoe Saldana has been kicking butt in films with style such as The Losers, Star Trek and Avatar, but this movie showcases her ability to fight and deliver an exciting and emotionally charged role all at once! Olivier Megaton's quick paced editing of the action scenes will leave you breathless, and the sound is explosive! He has put a whole lot of awesome into this movie to make it a full blown experience. I love this film, Zoe Saldana is definitely one of the best female action stars. Final Score: 93%
