Thumping Action
The latest work from Europacorp didn't disappoint me. I love Luc Besson's mad action flicks and this was no different. Zoe Saldana is class as the sexy killer ready to do anything to get revenge on the criminals who murdered her family. It's territory we've seen over and over but I enjoyed it. The films action, when it comes, is thrilling. There are some inventive kills and a good little straightner at the end involving toothbrushes (believe it or not). Saldana will probably come a long way after this in terms of action roles and it's nice to see an actress who can act as well as kick ass. Lennie James is a bit on the didgy side with an accent that sometimes sounds like a drunken person at an Indian restaurant doing a bad impression of the waiter. He's a still a good actor all the same. I hope they continue to make these sorts of action films where I can just switch of and enjoy them because as long as they make them, I'll watch them. ***/*****.

Trivia

In the scene where Cataleya rams into the police car, it is in a place outside New Orleans called Fat City. The bar Uncle Larry's, was actually a real bar at the time but is no longer there. Also in the scene, briefly, you can see a sign for Circle K and a split second later you see Brother's; it's actually the same building. The gas station was under construction during filming and Brother's had bought the Circle K franchise.


Quotes

Don Luis Sandoval: I can't believe this.
Fabio Restrepo: Why not?
Don Luis Sandoval: Because I love you, Fabio, like a son.
Fabio Restrepo: I love you, Don Luis, like a father.
Don Luis Sandoval: I'm going to miss you.
Fabio Restrepo: And I'm going to miss you.
Don Luis Sandoval: Okay. Enough of this sentimental bullshit. One last drink? Next we'll be crying like two old...


Goofs

Cataleya states that her parents were killed in front of her when she was nine years old, yet the end credits list her as being ten in the flashback. Also, in the edited version released for cinemas, her parents were killed outside the apartment where Cataleya sits. So she only hears the gunshots, but never actually sees her parents die, or even their dead bodies. (Although in the full version of the film, she sees both her parents die, one after the other.)


Alternate Versions

Three versions of this film exist:

  • the original international theatrical version
  • the US theatrical version, which was cut to secure a PG-13 rating
  • the US unrated version, which not only restores the cuts made for the theatrical version but also includes some additional violence (i.e. the shooting of Cataleya's parents)
