Luc Besson’s stylish French action thriller stars Anne Parillaud in an intense performance with great supporting roles played by Marc Duret, Patrick Fontana and Jean Reno. The sharp script, exciting action scenes and complexly layered characters all go towards creating a memorable piece of entertainment.
With Nikita we see the same strong visual style and creative flair Besson was to use again so successfully in his huge 1994 hit, Léon. These two films established him as a world-class action maestro; one who mixes Hollywood style with French identity.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:
