Movie Reviews

Now we're talking!
Matt Stevens | NYC | 01/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not going to say anything about the film itself because we all know how good it is. It's Besson's best ever.

What I will say is that watching it in High Definition on Blu-Ray is a real treat. Picture and sund are truly amazing and blow away the prior DVD's, all of which had lackluster picture quality at best.

And yes, this release has the properly translated subtitle track. Some DVD releases had a word for word transcription of the terrible English dubbed track. Not so here, so no worries.

However, extras are nowhere to be found. Is it too much to ask that this film finally receives a special edition?"
Should You Bother with the Bluray if you Have the DVD?
Dr. Elaine O. Chaika | Eastern New England | 02/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Super Bluray. The film, of course, is excellent, although it never has been clear to me why the authorities would want a criminal to become their agent. However, once you swallow that incongruity, it is an engrossing film. The Bluray transfer is excellent, rich colors, sharp definition, action remains crisp, but that is probably because my HDTV's have the requisite fpm's. If you like action films, and if you've liked the previous recordings of this, you will love the Bluray version. Definitely worth updating from DVD."
Parillaud Is THE Nikita; Thumps Up On The Blu-Ray
Craig Connell | Lockport, NY USA | 03/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was worried this Blu-Ray would be "so-so" in the sharpness department.....but not worry: it looks just fine! It will be in my collection shortly.

This 1989 French film was justifiably so popular that an American re-make followed later and then a cable television series followed after that.

In this - the original - you see "Nikita" at its beginning and, most people agree, at her best. Anne Parillaud, an actress I've always found fascinating, is riveting as the lead character. Jean-Huges Anglade, Tcheky Karyo and Jean Reno provide a very strong supporting cast.

The characters were believable and it was refreshing to see a no-nonsense approach to a murder story, meaning if someone had to be killed, they were shot quickly with no questions asked. Some of the action scenes are brutal.

Parillaud's character is memorable. She can change appearances, from a hard- nosed hysterical animal to a real lady. It's also interesting to see Reno in a familiar role as a "cleaner," a role he made famous four years later in "Leon: The Professional."

The DVD provides either easy-to-read subtitles or a well-done dubbed version. As mentioned, the Blu-Ray version is a definite step up from the last DVD."
This a movie well worth the effort of reading subtitles
Don | Dallas, Texas | 09/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an incredibly well done movie, much more intense than the US remake, "Point of no Return".
The real star here is Jean Reno, but his interaction with Anne Parrilaud and the other players in this movie brings them up to a higher level. I am fluent in Fench but my wife is not, so we have the subtitles turned on when we watch it. The english subtitles, although not always strictly accurate, are more accurate than the english dubbing, and it is well worth reading the subtitles and leaving the french sound track on. We have probably watched this movie 4 times in the past 5 years, and it is still fresh each time."
