A drugged out. almost brain-dead punk full of attitude and anger, Nikita is caught after helping rob a drug store, leaving several cops dead. She’s given a choice. Accept a quiet death penalty, or agree to be trained to be a secret government assassin. A good part of the film (and arguably the most interesting) is her training itself, as Nikita’s rebellious nature keeps getting her pushed to the edge of getting kicked out (and hence executed), while her strange sullen sexiness begins to seduce her Henry Higgins, an agent assigned to oversee her who finds himself getting more than a bit obsessed. Meanwhile, the always wonderful Jeanne Moreau tries to teach this nihilistic punk how to come off as a woman of the world, the better to be able to get close to her targets.

This is often argued to be a film of style over substance, and in the big picture that’s probably fair. And it didn't hold up quite as well on a recent 2nd viewing 20+ years later as I hoped. But still, this spends more time on human interaction and emotion, and less on blowing stuff up than almost any of its contemporary counterparts, Not art, but for a popcorn movie smart, inventive and fun.

Suspension of belief is paramount here.
This ridiculous tale turns a druggy street urchin into a government trained assassin in a very short space of time.
Surely they would have gone for someone ex_army not this willowy waif that we're expected to believe is Bronsonesquely familiar with a variety of high end weapons.
This is glitzy trash . Mildly diverting , but not the tour de force Besson thinks it is.

The story, the characters, the acting and the cinematography make this one of my all time favourites.

A classic "chic with a gun" movie,still one of the best even though it was made in 1990.
