Quote of the Day — ‘Columbiana’ Movie Review

“Co-writer and co-producer Luc Besson tries a new spin on his tried-and-true “La Femme Nikita” formula, but the results are so clumsy and over-the-top that they should have just called the movie “Panty Assassin” and played the whole thing for laughs.” Alonso Duralde very funny movie review of Zoe Saldana’s new film, ‘Columbiana.’

  1. I enjoyed the movie tremendously.  I thought the drama was very effective; the action was packed and I thoroughly enjoyed the chase; the secenery was incredible allowing you to view different locations.  And, of course the actors and actresses selected were all incredibly well selected for this movie.  The only thing I found a little hard to believe was the very first part of the movie.  A tramatized child will not react as quickly as little Cata did.  That a child could plummet a knife into a stranger’s hand with such vengence as she did was a little unbelievble. You had her leaping off buildings, and falling off roofs and finally throwing herself into the gutter…that was the only part I had trouble believing, and I actually heard the crowd chuckling over it.  Other than that, the movie was very captivating.  I will encourage others to go watch. 

  2. This movie was great….. errr, I meant to say I had fun watching it. Picture this:  Catwoman played by the blue girl from Avatar. Mix in a hefty dose of cliches and laughable dialogue, splash with a twist of bra-less tank-top action, wrap it all in an overdone soundtrack meant to impose emotion on the viewer and finally, glaze over with (suprizingly) decent cinematography. I had fun snarking my way through the film much like I did Tokyo Drift which is now one of my most-watched films. If you want to be compelled or challenged as a viewer don’t see this. If you can have fun watching a movie made for 14 year-old boys (& who cant?), go check out the matinee.
