Debaser Film

La Femme Nikita

I find it pretty funny that the actual French title of this film is just Nikita, but hey, whatever. This is still a fantastic film, and I really enjoyed watching it — and it helped that I barely remembered the story. Great cast all around, and I really like how it ends. The only things I didn’t like were the score and the sound effects of the gun shooting, which are weirdly cavernous, and just took me a bit out of those scenes. As for the score, it’s by Eric Serra, and looking up what else he had done (other than multiple Besson films) I noticed he did Goldeneye, and on a recent rewatch of that movie I indeed realized just how much I don’t like that score either.
