La Femme Nikita B+,C+
Film stylist Luc
Besson finds a perfect match for his talents in the story of a scruffy violent street punk who is
trained by the French Secret Police as an assassin. Along with visually stunning camera
work, Annie Parrilaud is a perfect Nikita, fragile yet dangerous.

The DVD improves upon the laser laser incarnation of La Femme Nikita with sharp detail and
the absence of color noise. Perhaps there's a bit too much edge enhancement used as some scenes
play havoc with the NTSC aliasing artifact. The score by Besson collaborator Eric Serra is as
snappy as Nikita's moves.
