"An action movie with black wit, sexual tension, finger-chewing suspense".
"Nikita-intense, brutal and powerful action from Luc Besson's female Terminator."
Nikita is an explosive action-packed thriller from Luc Besson, director of Subway and The Big Blue. Anne Parillaud stars as Nikita - a junkie, who, while commiting a robbery on a chemist's shop, murders a cop and is caught by the police. Faced with a choice between a death sentence and a chance to work for the secret service, Nikita spends three years training as a top government assassin.
A cross between Modesty Blaise, a female Terminator and Rambo, Nikita commits one execution after another, killing without remorse or feeling. Life takes a turn when she falls in love with a charming supermarket cashier, Jean-Hughes Anglade (star of Betty Blue) and is forced to choose between her lover or carrying out her most dangerous and cold-blooded assignment yet.
