Movie Review: Colombiana

Finally! After five months I get to watch this movie. It was featured in one of my August posts, “Top 5 Movies I Want To See” I think it was called. When I saw the preview for it being released onto DVD/Blu Ray last week, I literally put it on my Christmas List. Well I put it on my online list, and I didn’t get it for Christmas. However, waiting four days after Christmas isn’t so bad especially since I waited five months to see, four days is a piece of cake. Anyways, I love bad ass movies with bad ass women in them. I am a big fan of Zoe Saldana, so I knew I’d like this movie either way.

This movie was interesting. To me, it was like “Takers” which ironically has Zoe in it as well. Except in that movie, she plays this sweet girl and her fiancee is the one who is the bad ass. He doesn’t really kill people though. In this movie, she was the bad ass. I don’t know what it is, but when girls “play” with guns or anything very dangerous is very hot. Cataleyna (Zoe Saldana) was very powerful and sneaky. She was also very fast, there were parts in the movie where I held my breath because there’s some close calls. Even when the younger Cataleyna was powerful. I kept thinking she was Willow Smith though, and I just looked up the cast and it isn’t. That’s ok though, the girl was still great!

If I saw my parents/family gunned down and have something they wanted. The people who killed them, if I wasn’t handicapped I’d probably attempt to kick some ass too. Something that the police officer when they were trying to find out who killed that guy in the beginning, he said, “it can’t be a woman.” Well, obviously he’s never watched Snapped. She was skinny as hell, and known what she was doing and as a viewer I was laughing inside when he found out he was wrong. Something I didn’t get was the title of the movie. “Colombiana” when I was first seeing the previews for it I thought her was that and when I first started hearing everybody calling her “Cataleyna” I got confused. I’m guessing, they titled it that because it takes place in Colombia? It doesn’t make sense. Anyways, if you love action-girls-with-guns this your kind of movie.
