Overview

Director John Badham's remake of French action thriller La Femme Nikita moves the action to the U.S., where Maggie (Bridget Fonda) is a strung-out Washington, D.C. drug addict who kills a policeman in a pharmaceutical-induced haze. Sentenced to death, Maggie is rescued by a shady operative, Bob (Gabriel Byrne), who offers to save her life if she'll become a covert government assassin. Maggie agrees and trains for a life as a professional killer under a new name, Claudia. Her classes include weaponry, martial arts, explosives, and even social graces under the tutelage of Amanda (Anne Bancroft). Claudia is transformed into a classy sophisticate and is assigned to Venice, California, where she falls for J.P. (Dermot Mulroney), an attractive photographer who lives downstairs. Claudia's highly dangerous job soon interferes when she's ordered to carry out a series of clever assassinations, including a hit in a restaurant and a hotel bombing. When one particular killing goes horribly wrong, she gets some assistance from Victor the Cleaner (Harvey Keitel), a disposal artist who may have also been ordered to get rid of Claudia.

Bridget Fonda as a hot assassin? Of course! She starts out as a hot mess druggy at the beginning of the movie. But soon Anne Bancroft has taught her some culture and poise. Gabriel Byrne is the creep that takes her off the street and puts her in training camp for killers. He starts to fall for her but knows he shouldn't. Soon, our heroin, Maggie, finds a boy toy of her own... but in this business you can have no ties. Will sexy Maggie (Bridget Fonda) listen to her boss and dump the boy friend and focus on "the jobs" or will this become a real complication that can only be settled with a true finality?
