COLUMBIANA is a terrific film -- The plot is straightforward -- drugs, murder, revenge -- the execution is inventive, explosive, thrilling, often surprising, and always clear.
Zoe Saldana has killer looks, killer moves (literally), and is drop-dead gorgeous. Her acting is letter perfect.
Amandla Stenberg who plays her character as a little girl (Amandla plays Rue in THE HUNGER GAMES) is amazing, beautiful, and a perfect match for Zoe. The opening sequence ends with a sensational chase that is among the very best of all non-FX chase scenes in all films.
This a a great midnight movie. (And, yes, I just saw it at midnight on STARZ.)
COLUMBIANA is a French-American co-production, with a screenplay by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen, directed by Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3 and many French films).
