Never really materializes as a taut espionage thriller and winds up as an unsatisfying execution of a clever premise ...

This lacklustre espionage thriller is bogged down with the sort of clichés you'd expect from the height of the Cold War.

Richard Benjamin's strategy in directing ''Little Nikita'' seems to have been to paper over the holes in the plot with routine moves from spy shows past, in hopes of making the improbable passable.

Not a shade on "Running on Empty", but a nicely performed encore

It turns all of the characters into chess pieces, whose relationships depend on the plot, not on human chemistry. Since the plot is absurdly illogical, you're not left with much.

"Little Nikita" would be nothing without River Phoenix's hair. It's the most engaging, the most watchable thing in the film.
