Many are skeptical when it comes to TV remakes but The CW's take on the 1990 French film Nikita
, not to mention the 1997 television series La Femme Nikita
, appears to be worth watching, at least based on critics' early reviews.
On the new series, premiering this fall, Maggie Q stars as a rogue spy who aims to bring down the secret division of the CIA, which forced her to become an assassin and killed her lover. She's the first recruit to get out. The question is: Will she be the last?
Nikita also stars Lyndsy Fonseca, Shane West, Aaron Stanford, Ashton Holmes, Tiffany Hines, Melinda Clarke, and Xander Berkeley.
