Movie Trailer: Colombiana



Men can sometimes become consumed by their enthusiasms.  Two of mine are action films and beautiful women of color, both of which take up considerable volume in my brain.  I imagine that filmmaker Luc Besson isn’t all that different.  He is fascinated with the concept of the super assassin, so much so that almost every film he as ever written, directed, or produced has been a variation on that concept.  As if through a Vulcan mind meld, he has found a way to merge my obsessions with his own.  The result is the very simply titled Colombiana.
