4.0 out of 5 stars Good bluray, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikita [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Anne Parillaud stars in this action thriller directed by Luc Besson. Its a fine film, which made sufficient impact when it came out for Luc Besson to remake it in Hollywood as The Assassin a few years later. That version, starring Bridget Fonda was also pretty well done but its not as good as the original, which has more flair and excitement.

The plot has been recited by other reviewers, so I won't repeat that. In a supporting role is Jean Reno effectively getting in practise for Leon, which was made a few years later, but is referenced quite a few times in the film. In my view Nikita is not as good as Leon. I didn't care as much about the characters as those in Leon, and Nikita doesn't have quite the same magical cast as that great film. However this is a terrifically entertaining film make no mistake about that.

The bluray print is good and the extras are interesting if not that substantial. There is no commentary.
