    All of that combines to make Colombiana into a scandalous blend of action, sex and violence. My apologies in advance for having so much fun.

    In catsuits, swimsuits, and skimpy underthings, Saldana is as potently elusive as a shadow can be.

    The Olivier Megaton-directed Colombiana may not be the brainiest of actioners, but one of the merits of producer Luc Besson's latest brainchild is that fanboys worldwide will come away with a scrap of horticultural knowledge as well as a pretty good time.

    Colombiana isn't the last word in action movies, but it's a fun ride. And so wrong.

    Zaldana is such a sultry and surprisingly heartfelt executioner that she often finds a way to make this by-the-numbers genre retread feel, if not fresh, then at least sporadically electric.

    Saldana is in top form for the acrobatics required in the role, and she makes the gritty determination of her character believable.

Where Zoe Saldana ; plays pretty much the exact same character , but without the lime light.Although the alluring figure of the actress coupled with gun's and explosions will make the opening week a bro- fest i don't see this recycled vengeance plot , becoming a colt classic.I would much rather watch a "The Loser's 2" with Saldana playing a larger role then the first then a slightly different story starring her completely.

If you're expecting high art, you won't find it here. But it's a good time with laughs and a good bit of innovative violence. It's great seeing some alumni from The Unit and Human Target in the mix - two great testosterone-fueled shows whose plugs were pulled before their respective times. Saldana does a perfectly respectable job in her role. Physically, she's spot on. She could have brought a bit more emotional range to the proceedings, but again, it's a B movie action flick. Nailed it. Full Review »

The fact that it actually think its smart, is what makes this movie so dismal. Sitting through it was a difficult experience, not even Saldana's beauty and effort could save it. In fact it only makes it more difficult to watch as she's wasting talent on a movie that should have been made for tv. Colombiana is a cliched-ridden mess, with poor dialogue that would make the best of actors look horrible. The movie crumbles as the story progresses, and its surely one of the summer's loudest light-weights. Full Review »
