Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Nikita is a 1990 French film written and directed by Luc Besson. Released in America as La Femme Nikita (just so everyone would understand it is in French).Nikita (Anne Parillaud) is a young junkie who (along with her friends) holds up a pharmacy and ends up killing a police officer. She's arrested and sentenced to life in prison without parole, but is then given a choice of a new secret life. A life working for a shadowy government agency. She will be taught how to kill, how to be a lady, how to be a spy, all in the service of her country.Remade in Hong Kong as Black Cat (1991) with Jade Leung (as Catherine) and in America as Point of No Return (1993) with Bridget Fonda in the Nikita role. There have been two television adaptations so far: La Femme Nikita with Peta Wilson and Nikita with Maggie Q.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

Ax-Crazy: Victor the Cleaner. His idea of salvaging an operation gone wrong is simply to shoot as many people as possible. And he only gets worse when he suffers a Villainous Breakdown.

Bathroom Breakout: During her first assignment ever, Nikita is informed there is a small window in the bathroom, which she should use to get out once the "job" is done. The window turns out to be a wall. And Bob knew about it - the test was about Nikita's ability to adapt and improvise.

Action Girl: Deconstructed. She is nowhere near as badass as she became in adaptations.

Anti-Climax: During Nikita's first field mission, she's instructed to pose as a maid. Her entire job is delivering room service to the target given to her by a group of imposing agents (and one very nervous hotel manager)... and that's it. After she's done her small job, she goes home; her basic facial reaction is "Really? That's it?". Then a bomb the imposing agents planted in the stuff she delivered blows up the target.
