The film was based of a script that was set to be a sequel for Leon: The Professional. The story was set to follow Natalie Portman's character Mathilda as she tracked down and killed characters that had wronged her and Leon. Portman's success kept her from availability and the script was eventually re-written into the 2011 film Columbiana. See more »
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 »
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.
