A great movie. You may or may not like it, but I did.

Over the years I hadUpon cinematic release, being fascinated with Bridget Fonda, I watched 'Point of No Return', which I enjoyed but had no idea it was based on Besson's film. Badham's work was okay in my books, but nothing spectacular. Over the years I had loved those films of his I had seen ('Leon: The Professional', 'The Fifth Element', 'The Family' and 'Lucy'), and decided I wanted to see his earlier classic. I like the fact that Besson always has some hand in the writing, and the exquisite and graceful small part he wrote for acting legend Jeanne Moreau, virtually a microcosm of everything splendid she had ever brought to the screen. Besson has a very good feel for the genres his films represent--he plays to his strengths, and is not afraid to stick to his guns (for example, I'm glad he chose the ending that he did). The two significant extras on my DVD, remarking on the making of the film, and the sound selections by scorer Eric Serra, were both informative and entertaining, and added significant value. I highly recommend the experience to those who only think of 'The Fifth Element' when they think of Luc's work--you're in for a real treat... Expand

One the few movies in recent years that manages to transcend a completely idiotic storyline and ham-fisted filmmaking by sheer force of will. This movie hurls itself at you with all it's got, and a surprising amount of it sticks. One the few movies in recent years that manages to transcend a completely idiotic storyline and ham-fisted filmmaking by sheer force of will. This movie hurls itself at you with all it's got, and a surprising amount of it sticks. Whatever La Femme Nikita's faults, and there are many, what is undeniable is the sincerity and fury of the whole enterprise - and a handful of truly memorable action set-pieces. Visually deft, fluid, and often very funny, with a completely convincing lead performance by Parillaud. Not for everyone, especially Conservatives and other woman-haters, but lots of fun if you're game. Expand

Beautifully shot and acted, great score by Eric Serra, Nikita is a film that defines cool. I've watched Leon, the Fifth Element, and Nikita in just a week, and all are on my favorite movie list.
