Do you really need a review for what was Messieur Besson's powerhouse of a movie, which also spawned the character of Leon? Now I know why I hate baths! If you haven't seen Nikita then your movie experience is incomplete! Oh, and please don't gripe about subtitles, they just add to the atmosphere. How many times has a foreign film been ruined with lousy English dubbing? Anyone tried watching District 13 or AngelA dubbed? Don't waste your time, enjoy the language. So, Nikita, a dark, edgy and often brutal thriller. So good that the dear old USA tried to recreate it and failed dismally, offering instead a watered and stripped down version with Bridget Fonda. What a waste of time and money that was. In short, if you like a good gritty thriller and appreciate what the rest of the world has to offer, then treat yourself to this. You won't be disappointed. And, yes, the Blu Ray transfer is a real step up from the original somewhat grainy original along with the French Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack which is just as nice! No extras though, just a stonkingly good film! Enjoy, mes amis.
