Overview
Acclaimed international film director Luc Besson made his name during the early eighties with such stylish, cult classics as Subway and The Big Blue. With Nikita, Besson managed to kick down the doors of arthouse cinema with his reputation intact. Appealing to both lovers of international cinema and fans of high-octane thrillers, Nikita awarded Besson with global recognition. With its incredibly intense action sequences, shockingly graphic violence and deeply believable characters, Nikita remains as original and compelling as it did on its initial release. Death and romance has never seemed so appealing.

Nihilistic, teen street punk, cop killer Nikita has decided to dedicate her life to anarchy, crime, drugs and violence. But as a result of a brutal robbery Nikita is arrested for murder and sentenced to death. After a fake execution Nikita finds herself in the hands of a secret government agency. Stripped of her identity she is forced to train as a deadly assassin as penance for her crimes against society.
