Trivia

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 »

Goofs

The motorcycle chasing Cataleya at the beginning of the movie is a Honda CRF250R, either a 2004 or 2005 model. Yet the scene is supposed to take place in 1992. See more »

Don't believe the haters... this movie is a definite GO !!!
27 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
