I also "love Nina".
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.
Many people attempt to compare the two movies; Nikita and Point of No Return, there are no comparisons, except for the storyline. You have different actors/actresses, and they take a different angle and point of view to bring this story to light. I have watched both versions, including the La Femme Nikita TV series and have enjoyed and love the entire storyline surrounding Nikita, watching her transform from a troubled individual to a successful assassin in the government, paid to do her job well. My only thought in the movie, was why she did not have a relationship with all of them. If you like government espionage, drama, action, and the storyline/plot and actors, you would enjoy this movie.
The DVD is offered as one DVD, in multiple formats, color, NTSC, and widescreen view. They have English, French and Spanish available languages on the DVD, region is US and Canada only. It was released in 1998 on DVD, and runs for 109 minutes. The packaging was secure, the sound of the DVD is great, as well as the picture view. If you like action movies, with a twist, then you would enjoy this movie! I would recommend to others, including Amazon Customers.
When I saw this film I did not know it was a remake, and have not seen the original movie.
Bridget Fonda is a filthy ugly drug addict girl on the streets hanging with other drug addicts - they rob a store while she sits there high, and ends up the only one that doesn't get killed in the shootout. She is street tough with good survival instincts and a bad attitude. What many would consider a "garbage" human being - the kind of "trash" you'd prefer not to be part of your world.
After causing considerable trouble during arrest and trial, she is given the death penalty and put to death. However, she awakes to find herself in a type of cell, very much alive and is told that the world thinks she's dead already and they can make that a reality or she can accept this second chance at life and make something of herself - a secret government agent/assin whatever they need her to be. She is their's for life, alive at their whim, to do their bidding.
She is given all manner of education and basically made over into a new person (giving them some rebellion along the way) - off drugs, with some self respect finally. And after a final test (where she is given an assignment to kill someone in public, and then set up to fail escape from the scene alive) she passes the test and makes it back to base alive. She is then told to go off and live on her own and just be ready whenever they decide to assign another job to her.
She gets set up and enough time passes without assignment that she begins to enjoy her freedom and cautiously starts a relationship in the process. Life seems pretty good and then she gets a call - and another assignment and the conflict of who she is and who she want to be is huge.Read more ›
