Bridget Fonda starred in the English language remake of Le Femme Nikita in a movie called Point of No Return. Anne Parillaud plays the femme fatal in the original, of which, is infinitely better than the remake. Although that's partly due to Anne being more fit for the part, but it really is due to the talent behind the lens and not the firearm.
As he's shown with other works like The Professional (Jean Reno co-starred in that and this) and The Fifth Element, Luc Besson is masterful at creating a thrilling adventure without the bubblegum. And Le Femme may be his masterpiece. It's much grittier than this still portrays, and it is able to maintain a sense of realism given the near-impossible task of making this chick seem like a ruthless and capable assassin instead of simply being a sexy babe who talks too much and is useful to the extent that she can cook and clean up around the house.
