Femme Nikita, La

This film has an interesting premise. A young french girl (Anne Parillaud) turns from street punk to government assassin, after she is captured by a secret agency. She eventually, after her metamorphosis, leaves the agency to live a normal life. She does get called upon once in a while to kill specific people. She meets a handsome young man named Marco, whom she falls in love with, and wants simply to be left alone by the agency. Unfortunately, it's hard for her to change so easily. She almost gets killed when one of her assassin jobs goes wrong, and her homicidal partner (The Professional's Jean Reno) starts killing everyone.

Luc Besson is a very good director. He seems to be influenced by some of the Hong Kong action films, involving mind-boggling action and plenty of killing. Parillaud is quite good as Nikita, as she changes from a dirty, homely street punk to a beautiful, seductive assassin. You will find plenty of action that is just as good as any Sylvester Stallone movie.

My Rating = Three Stars
