At the age of nine, Cataleya witnesses her father and mother’s death by the Colombian criminals with whom her father was dealing. Immediately running from the criminals, Cataleya runs to the United States Embassy to hand over a chip that has all the contact information for the top criminals in Columbia. The Embassy provides Cataleya with a passport and flies her to the States, where she makes her way to find her uncle.
Cataleya learns her whole family has been in the killing business, including her uncle, who decided to kill because his son was killed. Knowing this, Cataleya decides to that she wants revenge for the death of her parents. Still 9-years-old, she begs her uncle to teach her how to be a killer.
Years later, Cataleya has killed 23 people and has been marking them with a drawing of the Colombian flower from which she got her name, which the government uses in their attempts to find this killer. Seeing the drawings and killings in the paper, the Colombian criminals who killed her parents know that Catalyea is coming for them next.
COLOMBIANA is completely focused on killing for revenge. In the end, it just leads to a lot of pain. Completely alienating everyone she knows and focusing only on killing, Cataleya leads a lonely life and there are no signs of asking for forgiveness or redemption.
COLOMBIANA is entertaining with your basic action thriller storyline, but the strong pagan worldview sends immoral messages. The stress of loyalty to family is the one and only good point in COLOMBIANA, but it’s not developed in a way that would make this a more inspiring, uplifting movie. COLOMBIANA also has some foul language, sensuality and very strong violence.
