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 »

The latest work from Europacorp didn't disappoint me. I love Luc Besson's mad action flicks and this was no different. Zoe Saldana is class as the sexy killer ready to do anything to get revenge on the criminals who murdered her family. It's territory we've seen over and over but I enjoyed it. The films action, when it comes, is thrilling. There are some inventive kills and a good little straightner at the end involving toothbrushes (believe it or not). Saldana will probably come a long way after this in terms of action roles and it's nice to see an actress who can act as well as kick ass. Lennie James is a bit on the didgy side with an accent that sometimes sounds like a drunken person at an Indian restaurant doing a bad impression of the waiter. He's a still a good actor all the same. I hope they continue to make these sorts of action films where I can just switch of and enjoy them because as long as they make them, I'll watch them. ***/*****.
