In looking for something in the Columbiana trailer that stands out as original or, at the very least, not well-worn territory of other films, I've come up short. Seemingly equal parts The Professional, The Transporter Series, La Femme Nikita (or Point of No Return), and any number of direct to DVD films, there is nothing here that makes me think I'll have a better or different experience seeing this in the theater rather than staying home to watch any of the aforementioned films. Also, each of the major players in the crew (Director Olivier Megaton, Writers Luc Besson and Robert Kamen, Director of Photgraphy Romain Lacourbas, and Editor Camille Delamarre) were a part of at least one of those films, which doesn't instill any more confidence that they are shooting for anything more than a small variation on what has come before. Without a doubt there are going to be explosive action sequences, impressive stunts, and enough bullets to take down an entire infantry, but will it be done any differently or with any more fervor than the other films of this type that have preceded it? That remains to be seen, but I'm not holding my breath.
Anytime a women is playing a action pack heroin roll, I definitely want to see it! I've met Zoe a couple times and will support her by seeing the film in theaters.

OK... this trailer is bad-ass! I love action movies, especially if revenge is the plot. Zoe is super hot and the hand to hand fighting choreography looks like it's done well. I will definitely be seeing this on opening day.
Zoe looks hot in this movie with her tight outfits. I won't see it this weekend because I still need to see Conan, but I think I will see it in theaters.
