A shoot-em-up vengeance movie about a specialized "hit woman" who is seeking retribution for her parents killings by Colombian drug cartel. Filmed in a surreal graphic novel style with lots of blood and gore at times. NOT at kids movie.. rated R for violence. I liked it.

I enjoyed this one. I like Lennie James and Zoe Saldana. I thought this was a fun one, just straight up action movie!

Stenberg and Saldana were perfect as the contract killer Cataleya, a Colombiana or woman from Colombia. Non-stop creative action sequences around a simple plot of a woman's quest for vengeance. You know the movie was good when the end credits roll that, you thought: next time on a bus, look out for a woman with brown skin, dark black hair, lithe, graceful, tight-fitting clothing, mid-twenties ... (Enjoyed "Hanna 2011," you should love this film.)

I watched this movie and I enjoyed it. It had action, explosions, and everything you would want in an action thrilling movie. Zoe Saldana was phenomenal in this movie beating up bad guys and protecting her identity from anyone that tried to kill her. Plus this movie is about revenge after witnessing her parents death from bad guys. A woman waits a couple of years with a little bit of fight training from her uncle to get back at the guys who killed her parents all those years ago.

Wow, I don't normally like violent, action movies, but I really liked this one. The female lead character is pretty appealing, and the story isn't bad. Overall, it was good entertainment, but quite violent.

It was a good action movie. Luc Besson is at his best when he writes/direct femme fatales. His female characters are fragile, stoic, heroic, figures. I also like how sexy she was without having to wear the skimpest outfits or having giant missiles on their chests. His characters are realistic and human.

Standard revenge pic with lots of gunplay, fistcuffs and explosions. There's a contrived plot twist but when is there not? Our heroine is plenty nasty, smart and resourceful and would probably settle Batman's hash. Still, the fact that the revenge angle is generated by one Columbian drug cartel family being wiped out by another mostly left me without any sympathy for sweet, little Cataleya.

You want me to teach you how to be a killer? Sure, no problema, I'll teach you. But you'll be dead in five years. If you want to be a killer and survive, you got to be a smart one. You have to know things besides how to pull a trigger. You have to know how the world works, how people think... You gotta learn how to stand, how to be psychological. And I cannot teach you that unless you learn the basics out of school.
I don't care, about what's professional and what's safe. I'm doing this my way.
-That is your way?
-A dead killer, is stupid.
We're not looking for a woman. It's not possible.
You have ruined your whole life trying to kill me? Someone like me? I cannot be killed. I do the killing. And now it's your turn to be hunted. You will never find me. But as day follows night, believe me, I'll find you, and I will kill you! And you know why? Because I will never be where you want me to be!
-Actually, you're exactly where I want you to be.
