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.
