Excerpt: I really wanted to watch this show when it aired on tv but never got around to it, then it came out on blu-ray. I waited until a price drop before buying it, since I did not want to spend alot of cash on a show that could end up sucking. All I have to say is Im so glad I made the purchase. This show is awesome its takes place a couple of years after the movie.
Excerpt: Maggie Q is great as Nikita - she plays the role perfectly and executes all the action sequences great. The story is very entertaining to watch and each episode has lots of action. So, any action fan should really check this show out!!! I can't wait to see where season two goes after the ending of this season!!!
Summary: I had watched the classic Luc Beeson thriller 'Nikita' several years ago and I found it both exciting and harrowing. A drug addict basically kidnapped by a French government black ops agency and trained as an assassin. Jeanne Moreau starred in the original and this movie brought Beeson to the attention of the world. When I heard that it had been remade in America I decided to give it some distance because my rule of thumb is 'if it works, why change it'.
Conclusion: I'd seen it advertised on tv for ages, and when I finally started watching it I was hooked. The show is about a woman who has gone rogue from a corrupt government agency called Division - who are a secret sector of the government who recruit young adults who are severed from everything and everyone and train them to become assassins - after they betrayed her.
Conclusion: I watched this when it aired on sky living, but in standard definition. Although I enjoyed it very much, the picture quality did not do it any justice. What a revelation upon seeing the blu ray! It is the only way to appreciate the series and to me was like watching it for the first time.
Conclusion: I started watching Nikita when it was first shown on sky, unfortunatly I did not have much time to watch it week in week out and it really dis jointed the series with the adverts etc. So I picked up the Blu ray boxed set and started from the begining again! Great series, lots of action, some good twists and characters. The Blu ray quality is good and the acting is pretty good throughout.
Conclusion: If you love action films or series, you're in for a treat! Absolutely Brilliant! I have re-watched each episode 3 times! She is the perfect female assassin and the cliff hanger ending is breathtaking...do watch!
