Movie Review : Colombiana (2011)

When a director of dubs is Megaton, whatever esoteric allusion, and even if it is French, you do not expect subtlety. And subtlety is definitely not what you get with "Colombiana", the gateway slender hyperactive action-thriller/fashion-week with Zoe Saldana as the latest trend in deadly weapons. Saldana is the new Schwarzenegger, only lighter, more dynamic and much better in spandex? I think so.

The B-movie blam blam bloody explosion is the latest reading a book by Luc Besson lovelies bruises that are best not crossed. What began in 1990, "La Femme Nikita," followed by "Leon" in '94, and '97 's "Fifth Element" (the last written by Robert Mark Kamen, who co-wrote "Columbian" with the B-man), he refined in the "Columbian".

Meanwhile, a former graffiti artist Olivier Megaton, which in recent years has been the umbrella Besson directs a train moving very fast in 2008 for "Transporter 3", seems to hit his hand in this last trip to the magazine to spread the 'murder. Saldana is the body that helps the model to focus on and pride, all combining to make a slick, hard work of beauty.

Murder begins in Bogota, where Cataleya (Saldana) is just a schoolgirl 10 years doing homework at the kitchen table when the gun thugs sent by the local drug lord down her parents before her. It establishes the reason for revenge, but better yet, an excuse to step unusually fine opening chase scene that shows the beauty, danger and athletics as a young parkour Cataleya (Amandla Stenberg) races, rollers and jumps over, around and through tightly stacked houses and streets serpentine hill to escape the killers. His passport security - Chicago and uncle - she swallows a flea, then expelled through the table from a very unhappy embassy official.

It is in the tradition of giving the protagonist Besson of trauma that both changes and define the life that follows. It certainly does for Cataleya. On his first day of school in Chicago, she said Emilio's uncle (Cliff Curtis), the only thing she wants to learn is how to become a murderer. In a twisted way back to school special moment, Uncle E shall explain any term explosive than it really needs a good education if she really wants to be a killer though. Who knew?

Although it is not Cataleya grow, we can assume it must have been an excellent student, because the next time we see her pulling a murder that involves sophisticated intelligence to be wearing a body suit and the execution of a series contortions in tight spaces that would make Houdini jealous. No wonder that their goals are linked to the crew that killed their parents.

If the director nod to the artistic inclinations, he gave the name of an image orchid - (Cattleya, gardening purists out there) - the signature inked on the bodies of his victims. It helps to knit together the plot, the FBI agent played constantly drawn pattern Lennie James, the Colombian Drug Lord Don Luis (Beto Benites), his No. 2 Mark (Jordi Molla), and a dirty CIA agent (Callum Blue), which helped to shift to Don Luis and his friends with them in a sort of off-the-books fraud in witness protection in New Orleans.

Since this is also a love story, is a piece of Cataleya get naked with the bears well filled, Michael Vartan as Danny. He has an artist who does not ask lots of questions, a good thing considering his obsession with disordered. Murders prove to be a breeze compared to the complications of love and the film does a good enough job of bobbing and weaving between them Saldana brings much verve and emotion attributions as a homicide.

But never forget the directors of their agenda and the removal of the main bodies accumulate more exotic and incredibly complex ways, all very intelligent and well-shot director of photography Lacourbas Romain, who has worked in 'Transporter 3' Megaton Maintaining the style levels of Maxim are set decorator, Patrick Olivier Durand with the dress designer dress BĂ©riot exploit the possibilities offered by Saldana lean, leggy frame

All this combines to make "Colombiana" outrageous in a mixture of action, sex and violence. My apologies in advance for having so much fun.
