Customer Reviews

Great movie with good actors and a lot of action.
zjc1953
It was entertaining but dragged several times, the plot was not very sophisticated, and it appeared to be a lower budget film.
D. J. DeWitt
I like the action in this movie and I like the way the movie ended she got away.

Yes, La Femme Nikita is the real classic. But after repeated viewings on cable, this movie sneaks up on you. For all of its commercial hype and fake glamour, there are guilty pleasures throughout, not the least of which is the emotional core of the relationship between Bridget Fonda and Gabriel Byrne. Dermot Mulroney is also winning in his underwritten role. The wild premise survives the remake, because it is just so compelling and dramatic, and Anne Bancroft steals every scene she appears in. Give it a try, on its own terms.

Bridget Fonda is outstanding in this role. Good mix of tense action and romance. I have recommended it to several friends and they all love it too. It's even better the 2nd time you watch it. It doesn't get stale.
I also "love Nina".

Format: DVD
Although lacking in some respects compared to the French original (you end up hoping that Bridget as assassin will pulverize her whimpering boyfriend with one of those big, big machine guns), Bridget Fonda as the star and Nina Simone with the soulful soundtrack give this movie the edge over La femme Nikita in at least two important departments. Bridget's performance here amazes me every time I see it--simultaneously believable as a feverishly trained assassin and a tragic hero so cute you just want to reach out and pinch her cheeks. But the highest marks go to the soundtrack. The writers of the adaptation wove in Nina Simone as a motif throughout the movie, well-complemented by 5 Nina songs, including "Feeling Good" and a cover of "Here Comes the Sun" tracked to the "relationship" scenes that /ALMOST/ make you forget how much you'd like Bridget to terminate her relationship with extreme prejudice..... Provides soulful reflection absent from the French original, and worth watching more than a few times for that reason alone. Pretentious naysayers say this remake has gone through the Hollywood ringer, but it's an A+ action-flick-plus-morality-tale spun before Quentin Tarantino made it socially acceptable for PBS-watchers to admit they like 'em. Give it a chance.

Well, some of the reviewers of this picture have said the original was better, but I disagree. This is just a fun, fast, exciting picture, with a terrific perfor- mance by Bridget Fonda and an even better script than the original.
Also, the use of Nina Simone's music puts this picture miles ahead of the first one--it makes the music an equivalent of Fonda's soul--the suffering and passion we hear in Nina Simone's music is what's going on in Bridget Fonda's heart. It's a dynamite movie. You will be damned happy you watched it.

I think Bridget Fonda does a really good job in this remake of the French movie, "La Femme Nikita". She's very believable in the action scenes and Gabriel Byrne & Harvey Keitel are always great in any movie. I loved seeing Anne Bancroft - she was, as always, superb! The best thing about this movie for me was introducing me to Nina Simone! I had never heard of her before, but when I heard her music (Bridget's character listened to her on her headphones) I had to hear more - I just love Nina's music! Some say the American remakes of foreign films never live up to the original, but I believe this one's worth watching - especially if you've thought women can't handle the tough jobs as well as men.

I think it is wrong to compare 'Point of No Return' to the original French film, 'Nikita'. After all, they are based in two different cultures at different times. That said, 'Point of No Return' is a very entertaining movie. Sure, it isn't a perfect film, but I don't know many that can not be criticized. Overall, it is a good movie. I agree with those who say that Nina Simone adds a lot of depth to the film. I first heard of her music through this film many years ago. What a gift?! That is worth watching the movie in itself. I would recommend this film to anyone.

"Point of No Return" (aka "The Assassin") is a 1993 American remake of the 1990 French film "La Femme Nikita," which spun a TV series that ran from 1997-2001. There's also a Hong Kong version made in 1991 called "Black Cat." My only familiarity with this franchise is that I vaguely remember seeing one of the TV episodes with Peta Wilson many moons ago. As such, this review will be based solely on the merits of "Point of No Return" itself (which isn't necessarily a bad thing since fans of original films tend to be excessively critical of remakes).

THE STORY: Maggie (Bridget Fonda) is a drug-addicted loser who gets the death penalty for being a cop-killer. There's a 'burial' but she mysteriously wakes up in a secret governmental institution and is offered the opportunity to live; the catch is that she must now perform the government's dirty work as an assassin. She spends numerous months learning the skills and social graces necessary. After training she takes the code name Nina and re-enters society living in Venice Beach, CA. There she discovers normalcy (compared to her past life) and love. The consequence of becoming whole and civilized is that Nina develops a conscience and comes to resent being a nasty tool of the government. Unfortunately her controller (Gabriel Byrne) informs her that there is no 'out' and dissenters automatically get a bullet in the brain.

"Point of No Return" is one of those films that I didn't expect much from and wasn't overly impressed with the first half hour, but when Nina passes her final 'test' and re-enters society the film caught my interest and wholly captivated until the end.
