I streamed the original French version of Nikita shown in 1990. I actually really enjoyed this movie even with it being in a completely different language. It seemed to have more sex appeal being in French, honestly and a little racier. Nikita is a hardcore heroin addict who decides she and friends will rob a pharmacy, to whom she knows the owners, and are familiar with them. Well, they get caught midway through and start all out war with the cops at the scene. Everyone dies except her and then she decides to shoot a cop because she really isn’t fully there. She then gets arrested as well as a life sentence in jail.. In jail, she gets drugged to look as though she is dead, overdosed.¬†Everyone believes she is really dead.¬†When she finally wakes up she finds herself faced with the choice to work for French intelligence agency who captured her or be put in the grave where she was “buried”. She finally accepts and is trained by another woman who was actually captured as well to work for them. She is then assigned to kill a politician in a restaurant and escape which she does. Meanwhile, she meets a man who she gets very attached to who knows nothing of what she does in real life. At this point, she has proven herself. Next, she was to steal documents with another assassin. Well, things don’t go as planned and he starts to kill, clean, and cover up. The cleaner is killed in the situation and Nikita decides to flee away from everything. Overall, great movie I just wish there had been more of a closure at the end.
