Last week, I reviewed "The Debt" and "Columbiana" on KARZ-TV’s morning show. Both films share a central theme of bringing evil to justice, albeit it in very different ways.
"The Debt" has an all-star cast of Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, and Jessica Chastain to name a few. It’s the story of three Israeli Mosad agents who enter into occupied East Berlin in 1966 to capture a Nazi war criminal. During the operation, something unexpected occurs and the three agents grapple with the implications of their actions. It’s directed by John Madden, who also directed "Shakespeare in Love".
"Columbiana" stars Zoe Saldana as a young woman who becomes an assassin to avenge the murder of her parents at the hands of Colombian drug lords. It’s co-written by Luc Besson, the director/author of such films as "The Professional" and "Le Femme Nikita."
