A young woman grows up to be a stone-cold assassin after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota.

The film was based on a script that was set to be a sequel for Léon: The Professional (1994). 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 this film. See more »

Simple, effective, cool, bad-ass ! Well done Europacorp !
This is just my opinion.
Europacorp is a very interesting production society because it associates Hollywood to French cinema, we can have a French director who directs Hollywood stars like Olivier Megaton did for Colombiana with Zoe Saldana or for Taken 2 with Liam Neeson. It brings an other way to direct movies which works at the international Box Office. Thanks Luc Besson.
But this society do not product always good movies. In fact they often product the same kind of films : simple action movies.
So what about Colombiana?
This is so cool ! This is really entertaining. Of course the script is very simple but it works. It is exactly in line of all the Europacorp productions but this one is pretty cool !
Zoe Saldana is really good for this role. She is beautiful and she kicks ass. The movie is well directed, except for one fight where the plans are linked too fast and we cannot really see what is happening.
Colombiana is a really dynamic film, the actions sequences are not boring (yes, it is paradoxical but it happens sometimes, I love you but I am thinking about you Michael Bay).
If you want to enjoy a good action movie, you can watch without doubt this one !
