Despite Colombiana having one of the worst trailers I have ever seen -- I will be very happy if I never hear the phrase, “Never forget where you came from” again -- I had my fingers crossed that Colombiana would do well. With Michael Vartan as the second lead, Colombiana was all Zoe Saldana’s show, and in that aspect, she both figuratively and literally kicked ass. However, it’s really difficult to make back a $40 million budget when your two leads are only semi-knowns and the writing isn’t all there.

Counting the market outside the U.S., Colombiana did make back its money, although that still doesn’t mean all that many people saw the film in the States. If you did want to give the revenge-based action film a shot, you won’t have to wait long. Colombiana will hit Blu-Ray and DVD on December 20th. Unfortunately, both the Blu-Ray and DVD sets are sort of lacking in the bonus features department.

If you’ve bought a Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Blu-Ray recently, you may have gotten an UltraViolet copy, which allows owners to stream or download the film whenever, wherever. That’s the big bonus for the Blu-Ray, which will cost a reasonable $35.99, compared to the DVD’s $30.99. Both Blu-Ray and DVD copies will also come with a “making of” segment and a featurette called “Cateleya’s Journey.” Additionally, Blu-Ray copies will come with several more featurettes, including “Assassins,” “Training a Killer,” and “Take The Ride.” Overall, Colombiana isn’t too expensive and it does come with a few extras. With mobsters, a hot female assassin, and some stuff that blows up, I’m guessing it’ll make a good holiday gift, provided there's a teen boy or a man-child in your life.
