IGN - You've seen Colombiana, even if you haven't already viewed the film. It's the same old tired revenge story recycled and repackaged as something fresh and exciting. It's not, I assure you. The film doesn't even really try to offer some kind of loving nostalgia for '70s grindhouse revenge pictures of yore. Nope. That would require some kind of originality and style. Instead, Colombiana is a mercilessly dull actioner that takes way too long to get going, and once it does, it somehow manages to offer even less than imagined.
This week on Episode 20, Dinah, Steven, Simon, Kieran, and John take a look back at summer 2011, debating the best and worst movies and performances of the season. Before that, the movie crew discusses the latest in movie news related to Ghostbusters 3, Taylor Lautner joining The Expendables 2, and recent movie trailers. Also, Simon and Dinah, and John review Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Colombiana, Our Idiot Brother, Fright Night, and “Conan.” You can listen to it all free.
A revenge thriller plagued with predictable and choppy action that plays it safe, instead going for mindless entertainment – minus the entertainment. Full review by Chris Pandolfi.
