While they correctly used 3.5" floppy discs in the opening scene, the thing that she swallowed while being pursued after her parents murder appeared to be an SD card. This technology wasn't developed until 1999. But then when she vomited it up in the embassy, it still appeared to be an SD card until the agent turned around and inserted a floppy disc into his computer. See more »
I'm going to begin by saying Besson's Leon is one of the best films ever made. Screenplay, acting, soundtrack, directing, cinematography,.....every aspect was magnificent. That being said, Columbiana is no Leon. Basically it's just a superficial Jolie film without Jolie. The story is ridiculously expounded, the actors are second rate, and the setting is about as morose and uninteresting as it could possibly be. No one cares about any character in this film. It has no heart, and no soul. Just a lot of bangs and booms. If that's your deal, go see it....although there are better like-genre films to waste your money on. Besson missed his chance at a blockbuster sequel to a classic. This dreg is not it, although I'm sure it was in the back of their minds when they conceived this tripe.
This film will be forgotten in a month. The comparisons will kill it. Meanwhile, Leon and Mathilda live on forever.
