Based on the acclaimed French thriller ”La Femme Nikita”, “Nikita” – now in it’s second season – ollows the story of a troublemaking teenager forced into the violent world of life as an assassin.
Maggie Q (”Mission Impossible 3”) stars as the series’ heroine, a killer gone rogue against Division, the secret government agency responsible for her training and subsequent employment. Not only does Q bring with her a dojo of martial arts abilities and spectacular performance skills, but she has a rare credibility not often seen from small-screen action heroes.
Shane West (”A Walk to Remember”) co-stars as Michael, a Division operative and Nikita’s former mentor in what is a roller-coaster first season. I really enjoyed this.
An outstanding barrage of extras here; there’s commentaries, numerous documentaries, a game, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and interviews.
