Based on Luc Besson’s 1999 film La Femme Nikita (and, mercifully, less cheesy than the 1997?2001 Peta Wilson TV series), this promising adaptation follows the same premise: Nikita (Mission: Impossible III’s Maggie Q) was forced by a secret division of the government to be an assassin, until they killed her boyfriend and she turned on them. Maggie Q is outstanding, sexier than Sydney Bristow and more badass than the Bride. No wonder drippy ex-handler Michael (Shane West) and new-assassin-in-town Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) can’t keep up. A?
