Movie Info

This film is a Hong Kong remake of the Luc Besson thriller La Femme Nikita with a high-tech twist. Catherine (Jade Leung) is a young troublemaker who is arrested and handed over to Brian (Simon Yam), a recruiter for a secret government agency. A microchip is implanted in her brain, transforming her into a glamorous ruthless assassin. This variation in the story places heavy emphasis on tension, as Catherine fears the loss of her humanity; otherwise, the story is fairly consistent with the original plot. Black Cat may be of interest to genre fans who wish to compare it to the French original and also to the American version, Point of No Return(1993).

Do you want action? Suspense? Comedy? A good romance? Great acting, direction, and script? Go somewhere else.

Audience Reviews for Black Cat

A rip off of Le Femme Nikita. Jade Leung looks good naked though.

Another shot-by-shot remake of "La Femme Nikita" and "The Assassin" (aka Point of No Return) in Hong Kong film. Jade Leung's shuddering, animalistic performance as the Pygmalion hit lady makes her American and French counterparts look like Avon salesladies.
