When this movie was in theater's, I saw this movie about four times.

It is not the greatest movie of all times, but it is very entertaining, and I do like the revenge flics, and Zoe Saldana did a very good job portraying the character, she had a good balance between revenge and her emotions over what she was doing, she was not the typical heartless killer. On par her character reminded me of Denzel Washington character from "Man on Fire", both characters balanced their revenge and their emotions with their revenge acts.

The movie could have been better, maybe more character development with the bad guys and her parents to fully understand the revenge, other than that she saw them killed in front of her.

I am hoping the unrated version will open up more story line to the film, if not, I will still enjoy the film.

I recommend it to anyone who wants to satisfy their revenge flic need, like Man on Fire, Man a Part, etc.

Young 10 year old Cataleya witnesses the murder of her father and mother at the hands of a vicious drug cartel leader and his assassins. The murder was caused by her father's wish to leave the cartel and start a new life with his family. Before her father is murdered he gives his young daughter a memory chip and tells her where to go in case something happens and to give the man the chip and tell him that it is her passport.

Cataleya (A name for a local Columbian orchid) escapes by attacking the man who helped kill her family and winds up in Chicago living with her uncle and his mom. He is a ruthless criminal also and she tells him that she wants to grow up to be a professional killer. He teaches her that anyone can be a killer and stupid and get caught but she must go to school, learn, be trained and become the best to be able to always get away.

Thus starts the saga of Cataleya's life and her goal to find and avenge her family's murder by killing the men who did it. Zoe Saldana plays the sultry and beautiful woman who becomes a mass murderer to achieve her goal. The movie features a lot of fast action and her methods of getting to her untouchable enemies are reminiscent of "Mission Impossible" type of assassinations. Several of the escape scenes are fun to watch!

This is a fast paced shoot-em-up movie and you will enjoy it if that is what you like. I gave it 4 Stars based on that fact. The script and dialog at times are lacking and the movie counts on the beauty of its lead actress to carry the show. It is bloody and vicious so be ready if that genre is not your favorite type of movie.

Fun Fast Ride With a Solid Cast. Enjoy it for what it is; a Nikita-type revenge flick. But it is a good one. Every role is cast well and acted well. The story itself is a good new twist on a classic revenge genre, and the pace is good. Even though at first I thought they spent too much time developing the little girl [our young protagonist] after watching the movie, it was actually the perfect length.

Fun and hard with just enough humanity in the story.

I was actually shocked by the negative reviews here and on iTunes.

Great flick well worth the rental.

The reason why her father was killed could have been explained much better giving you some more buy in. Also some people complain about lack of character development which is fine but if you go in expecting an action flick you'll be very happy. This movie was actually better than I anticipated. The pacing was good and very little over the top scenes. I'd like to see a spin off with this character. Zoe was fun to watch.

When I heard this movie had a lot of bad reviews and then I heard it didn't do well in the movies, I wasn't going to rent it. But there is the fault. I can't let other people's opinions be my opinion. I decided to watch this movie, and I thought it was absolutely excellent from beginning to end. When I watch movies like this, I expect the unexpected. I got it here. I expect uniquely thought out scenes. It was in there. This movie just wasn't in your face blow up everything all the time. It was emotional. It was mean. It was smart.

I have to say my favorite scene is when Colombiana was running from the bad guys. It was a great scene to watch. A little girl isn't supposed to win in the real world against drug goons, but she did in this movie. She won and got away.

Movies like these are meant to pull you away from boring reality. For the most part, most of us live normal uneventful lives, and Colombiana splashed an imaginative story of an assassin in your face. I appreciate it for what it was trying to do. Of course, some of the things, I will was like 'no way', but I had to remember it is just a movie. Now and days, you can fly like superman in a movie, and you have to realize that's all it is. A movie.

If you like sexy, young women who can kick butt and can operate an anti-tank missile and tame huge ugly dogs and swim with sharks, this will encompass it all.
