LA FEMME NIKITA was a fantastic French thriller that was remade, scene for scene, in the American POINT OF NO RETURN and the Chinese BLACK CAT…as well as a USA Network pilot/series. But none of the remakes could match Luc Besson’s original.
Here’s the amazing “restaurant” scene from the original LA FEMME NIKITA (broken down into two clips) and the same scene in the U.S. remake.

After seeing these clips I would like to watch the rest of the original version, and will skip the American. I liked the unseen violence at the table shooting, which, of course, the American version had to show, because you can never see too many bullet hits on a body.
