Point of No Return | 1993 | R | - 5.6.6

Scene-for-scene remake of the French film "La Femme Nikita," with Bridget Fonda as the young, amoral punk who becomes a professional assassin for the government.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Fonda is shown in her Calvin Klein underwear and there are a couple of love scenes: only cleavage, shoulders and legs are visible. During one encounter the lovers toy with each other by exchanging food, mouth to mouth. There are some women in thongs, and a quick flash of a topless woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - About a dozen people are killed, mainly by being shot. Some are killed at point-blank range and in cold blood. While the camera does not linger on gore, there is one scene where an unconscious woman is burned with acid: we don't see the result, but we do see her legs writhing in pain. One man is caught under a car and his arm is held against the spinning tire. He eventually gets run over.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 20 F-words, and other profanities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Political assassination as government policy, drugs, pre-marital sex.

MESSAGE - Sometimes in life there are only bad choices. People can change for the better.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
