A young woman grows up to be a stone-cold assassin after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota. She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target - the mobster responsible for her parents' death.

The memory card being used at the beginning of the movie, which the young Colombiana swallows then vomits up, is a SmartMedia card, manufactured by Toshiba in 1995. When the agent is wiping it off, you can see the silver circle under his thumb. This was the write protect sticker. He then puts it in a floppy adapter which made it readable by any PC with a 3.5" floppy drive. See more »
In highlighting the arrival of the antagonists into Chicago, a Boeing 747 operated by KLM was captured landing at O'Hare Airport. The errors lie in the facts that KLM operates into O'Hare only out of their hub in Amsterdam, and even if they did operate into New Orleans (the baddies' place of residence) law prohibits a foreign carrier from operating in a domestic capacity within the US. So it is impossible for them to have taken that type of aircraft operated by that carrier between New Orleans and Chicago. See more »
Don't believe the haters... this movie is a definite GO !!!
I guess some people just expect an award winning movie and actors every time they step foot into a theatre. I was doubtful about this movie in spite of the decent trailers. From start to finish I was blown away with the storyline and its continuous different turns. Maybe its not completely original in terms of the overall story, but what movie is these days. Colombiana keeps you glued to the screen. It has moments of love and drama, and then it brings out the action and suspense. I have not written a review in quite some time, but when a movie is receiving undue praise or criticism then i feel obligated to disclose the truth to the public. Do yourself a favor and go see it.
