This film makes me want to change the title of this column to, “I’m getting too old for this shit” because this movie is really a tribute to ‘70s and ‘80s femme-sploitation movies
And people my age have already seen those.
Cataleya (Zoe Saldana) witnesses the murders of her parents, grows up to be an assassin, and gets revenge.
Meh, in case you hadn’t already guessed that.
He directed Transporter 3, my least favorite of the trilogy, and Taken 2; and he was second unit director on Hitman. While I haven’t seen Taken 2 yet, the other movies were at least directed well.
Considering what I read in the news every week, I think an FBI agent would be less surprised.
Instead, Cataleya serves as a kind of fetish figure, a kind of black ops Lara Croft.
Colombiana is a throw-back to ‘70s and ‘80s action movies, where motivations were taken for granted.
