Audience Reviews for Point of No Return

  • Apr 29, 2020
    Based on the Luc Besson film Nikita, Bridget Fonda stars in the action thriller Point of No Return. After killing a cop during a robbery Maggie Hayward is recruited by a black ops government program that fakes her death and trains her to be an assassin, but when she's put into the field she have trouble living a double life. Fonda gives a pretty good performance, as do her co-stars Gabriel Byrne, Dermot Mulroney, and Harvey Keitel. But the script is pretty weak; never really explaining why Maggie was recruited or what turned her from a rebel to a loyal agent. And the love story comes off as forced and contrived. Still, the fight scenes are exciting and there are some suspenseful moments during the missions. Yet ultimately Point of No Return proves to be a rather rote and generic ‘90s action film.

    A hollowpoint remake of Luc Besson's trendsetting <i>La Femme Nikita.</i> I like Bridget Fonda, but she is pretty colorless here and is no match for Anne Parillaud as Maggie/Nikita.

    Some great OTT set pieces with strong performances from Fonda, Keitel and Byrne, but not quite as affecting as it wants to be and severely dated. Full review later.

    Point of No Return is a prime example of a remake that exists for no reason. It's literally a carbon copy of the original, but set in the US. Even the apartment has the same broken roof panels. There's just no reason I can see why they wanted to make the same exact movie over again. It's not like the cast is all that explosive; Bridget Fonda is just average at best. There's nothing interesting being done visually or content-wise in this that in any way makes it stand out. The only benefit to this version in the context of an American audience is you don't have subtitles, which is apparently enough of a reason to pour millions of dollars into a project. To Say this is bad is wrong, it's just extremely mediocre and pointless. Any human being with half a brain can see that compared to the French version it's just a lame copy. It also has a cheeseball ending thrown in to top it all off.
