Hollywood remake of Luc Besson's French thriller, Nikita. Young punk Maggie (Bridget Fonda) kills a cop in a bodged robbery, but instead of being sent to the chair, is reinvented as a ruthless assassin, tutored by her government agent mentor Bob (Gabriel Byrne). Released into the community, she finds love with her Californian apartment's caretaker (Dermot Mulroney), but her professional obligations increasingly threaten to destroy her happiness. Harvey Keitel makes a cameo appearance as a ruthlessly efficient 'cleaner', not dissimilar to the one he plays in Pulp Fiction. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment)

English There are films that you simply and easily fall in love with, even if you don't really know why. I want the 1990s back with its typical romanticism, heroes with their hearts in the right place, great action, ordinary stories, and its unique and unmistakable electronic and rock music. ()

English A remake of Besson’s cult movie La Femme Nikita by Hollywood craftsman John Badham. If I hadn’t known the original, Point of No Return would have come across as a standard Hollywood action flick with an interesting subject. But since I do know it, this version instead seems like a poor imitation of the great original with no sign of its creative touch. My three-star rating is only a compromise for those who haven’t seen Besson’s classic. ()
