Movie Review: Colombiana

Movie Review: Colombiana
What it is about:
A young girl in Colombia witnesses her parent’s murder by a local mob boss. From that day on her life’s goal is to become a killer and to avenge her parents death. The movie will take you several of Cataleya’s hits leading up to her final revenge.
What I thought it:
My opinion might not be that of the masses but I loved this movie! I love movies where the female is the one doing all the ass kicking and Zoe Saldana definitely kicks some major ass in this movie. It is definitely a shoot ‘em up and blow ‘em up sort of movie with lots of fight scenes and plenty of bullets flying everywhere. Ok, are there some scenes that are completely outlandish and not even remotely believable, sure there are, however, that did not detract from my enjoyment of this movie. My recommendation is to just sit back and let the movie entertain you and not get caught up in those moments. That’s what I did and I highly enjoyed the flick, as did my movie going buddy CeCe from bronzegoddessbeauty.com . My co-worker also saw the film this weekend and got caught up in the outlandish moments and therefore thought the movie terrible, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Personally, this movie was one of my favorites of the summer.

Go see it if you are in the mood for shoot ‘em up and blow ‘em up sort of movie
