- That failure of imagination serves at least one purpose: it reinforces how suited Maggie Q is to the role of Nikita: she has a solemn, exotic beauty and hauteur that echo the heroine’s self-possession and cool relentlessness.
- Nikita is noticeably more hard-boiled and less girlish than the undercover agent played by Jennifer Garner on “Alias,” or the C.I.A. rookie that Piper Perabo plays on “Covert Affairs.”
- But for all its pandering, “Nikita” is actually a well-made thriller for grown-ups: a heroine in a decidedly unheroic line of work.
The full review can be found here though the review is mixed with "Hellcats."
