It is a performances centric movie
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
The acting in this movie is really good.
I'm more-or-less forced to watch this horrible show (with daily reruns on the local cable), and and can't see what people like about it. It has no heroes: everyone is a cold-blooded murderer / terrorist. The "counter-terrorism" of Section-One amounts to the same terrorism they say they battle, including wanton torture, executions and kidnapping (everyone in section one is basically kidnapped). Not to mention the fact that the psychopath called Operations pisses of the most deadly secret agents of the company on a daily basis and still seems to get away from it.Add to this the bleary decor, the "whispering" that seems to be meant to indicate threat and the repetitive setup of each episode, and my abjection is complete.
"La Femme Nikita" is simply the best TV show of its kind ever made!! THE BEST!!Every aspect of it is close to perfection. There are some matters that could have been better, but that is only due to the low budget of the show.It is very rare for a movie or a TV show to gain a lot of its success because of its music style (not just the original score) but LFN nails it to the wall!! It has by far the best music selections that blend perfectly with the plot and the characters!! Much respect to the musical director of the show!!The acting is amazing from all the main cast. Everyone manages to deliver their character's goods extremely well! Allow me to speak individually for Mrs Peta Wilson.... EXCELLENT actress! As beautiful, sexy and breathtaking as she is, so are her acting skills. In fact if she wasn't such GOOD an actress the show would have never been so successful. Maybe what I am about to say is a bit over the top, but the way I see it Mrs Wilson is a better looking version of Mrs Jodi Foster.Just watch LFN and you will understand why it is SO GOOD!!
La Femme Nikita was groundbreaking and would've been on a lot longer had it aired on a major network. This was really the first time a female was given a strong, intelligent starring role on a t.v. series. The writers/directors of this show have gone on to write and direct for the popular "24" starring Keifer Sutherland, and several actors from Nikita show up in "24". The technology used in the show was incredible for the time. The actors are all first rate and it's the characters in the show that keep you coming back. "Alias" was a direct ripoff of this series, but it wasn't nearly as well done as Nikita. The fan base for this show was huge, and still is even though it is no longer airing. Roy Dupuis (Michael) is a huge star in Canada and his take on the role is perfect. His minimalistic style is what you would expect from a member of the world's most covert anti-terrorism group. Peta Wilson (Nikita) is believable in her role, unlike many females in physical roles. All of the supporting actors are great and many have had vast and varied careers.
I really enjoy this film and I think it was great. I look forward to seeing the next season! Maybe Roy Dupuis is not as handsome as Michael is in my mind:) but as an actor he is absolutely great! I also like Walter. But or me it was hard to understand the fact how he got to the section one - because he always try hard to be nice for everyone. The main reason that i watched this film was that I like watching men with a gun on TV screen. Of course it was a fantastic idea to create a love plot which made this film more interesting and sometimes quite mysterious.Write me back if you agree: firstname.lastname@example.org
