Trivia

The memory card being used at the beginning of the movie, which the young Colombiana swallows then vomits up, is a SmartMedia card, manufactured by Toshiba in 1995. When the agent is wiping it off, you can see the silver circle under his thumb. This was the write protect sticker. He then puts it in a floppy adapter which made it readable by any PC with a 3.5" floppy drive. See more »

Goofs

The GSM location algorithms only returns the X-Y coordinate, the location of the cell phone in some error distance. But FBI detected her flat, Z coordinate, the floor of the flat without any mistake and this is even impossible with current technology. See more »

Hot Chick with guns
26 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you have seen the trailer then you pretty much know what's coming. I personally thought it was a pretty good flick and the action throughout the movie definitely keeps your interest.

My only thought was that they should have gone ahead and pushed it to an "R" rated movie. With all the action and shooting, I believe there was almost little to no blood. I know the issue with too much violence and maybe they were trying to get a younger audience the ability to see this movie but it was lacking the "pop" factor by whitewashing too many scenes. Zoe Saldana did a superb job in this movie and I only wish that some of the supporting cast could have been on the same level that she is on.

IMHO
