Movie Reviews

Pretty Good
05/07/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Don't listen to that screwed-up review above. This movie has plenty of suspense, tense moments, and fine performances, especially by River Phoenix and Sidney Portier. You'll love it."
Nice Cold War Story
Glenn M. Schoditsch | Richmond, Virginia USA | 03/13/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Good story of a San Diego FBI agent in pursuit of a Soviet agent who is killing off Soviet "sleeper cells". There's good interaction between Agent Roy Parmenter and high schooler Jeff Grant whose parents are "sleepers". Great suspense as Roy and Jeff and parents play a cat and mouse game with the Soviet assassin. This is one of the last "true era" cold war movies to be made."
Not One of My Favorites
Glenn M. Schoditsch | 04/05/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this movie because it stars River Phoenix, my favorite actor. I would have to say that this movie basically wastes his talent [but not as much as A Night In the Life of Jimmy Reardon does]. The plot in this movie is kind of far fechted and hard to follow or get into. I'd avoid this movie unless you're a River fan."
Great Movie!
Glen Neal | 08/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I personally love any movie with the late and great, River Phoenix, but "Little Nikita" was pretty good. It really wasn't his best movie, but every actor has his/or her not-so-best movie. I would only suggest this movie if you're really into spy action movies from the 80s or if you're like me, watch it for River Phoenix being totally hot and talent."
