WHAT IS IT?

A clan­des­tine group within French in­tel­li­gence that han­dles po­lit­i­cal as­sas­si­na­tions. They re­cruit young junkie Nikita (Anne Par­il­laud) out of prison, fake her death, teach her fight­ing and sharp­shoot­ing skills— and buy her some mind-melt­ingly tight minidresses. Re­sult: über–hit woman!

SE­CRECY LEVEL

Once she com­pletes her train­ing, Nikita in­ter­acts only with her stern over­seer, Bob(tchéky karyo).

BOND-AGE FAC­TOR

The out­fits, cleav­age, and weapons are very 007- es­que, but there’s pre­cious lit­tle ac­tual es­pi­onage here.
