Although it seems it was a remake version of Nikita, originally story itself itself drama version Ryosaku, movie version Because it was subtle, I do not feel that it is particularly interesting, but I wonder if it was "such a thing" well.

Although Maggie, who was supposed to be executed a death sentence, became a secret agent of the government, was a special training scene of the early stage, was that karate? Is Karate such a pose? Somehow misunderstandings about Japanese culture are also seen partly It seems like you did. Well that is not to stare at all, but the early story lacked excitement. Kaufman also had a dubbed voice actor, but if it was over with Mr. Rokuro Naya, it was "Wow? Was it just this time?",
I was sure it was JP? It was a bad thing like a love scene or a service shot with my opponent 's brother and it was not penetrating in a good meaning.

It seems that I have also ended up mid-course, and at the end the game will be some more ........
And I think. Rasubosu who appeared afterwards seemed to have shot another supporting role (name was forgotten) suddenly, etc. It seems that there was a feeling of intimidation like being crushed afterwards.
Even though that interlocking one really was more thrilling, the characters of Rasubosu are so plain and I can not feel that way. And it was feeling that the character was sent off without being able to stand standing at the end.

In the end, it was certain that Bob decided that Maggie died together with that Rasubosu was stylish, but it was a name scene that was a bit late. In general it may have been that there was no use that the evaluation was not so high. Evaluation is "bad" one step before "normal".

[Good point] The character felt it was the best cast Woman's woman ... It was very good taste out

The hero carrying the harsh fate ... the love ... the happiness as a human being is tossed as well Sadness The harshness has made a very wide range of drawing human beings, including the hero that is transmitted too much.

[Bad point] The point which is remake But since I have not watched the origin more firmly, I want to refrain from anything like that

[Comprehensive evaluation]

It's a very attractive movie

A policeman who has been guiding by a drac mad girl is killed and sentenced to death.
However, it is upright and trained as an agent of governmental organization.
Because the roots of "Assassin" was a religious terrorist in the Middle East where drugs are commonly used at the beginning?

Well, aside from that I could not emotionally empathize to all the characters as well as the heroine because the depiction as a professional was inadequate.
In the middle of the restaurant you shoot the target dignitely,
Do not bang the hotel rooms with bombs, or doing things like doing the same with the conflicts of the mafia and the terrorists, it does not look like an organization of government welfare.
In order to prevent their existence from being exposed, Mr. Maggie should be carefully attended beforehand, but Mr. Maggie is borrowed from abroad as a part-timer.
For the last strategy, I had a strategy conference properly,
Then a girlfriend 's photographer came home and felt an awkward ambience ... ...

I think that the skeleton of the story is not bad, but in this case I wanted to shorten the scale of the training period of the first half and want Maggie and organization professionalism to show more in the middle.
This neighborhood is James who was disqualified spy, Is it Nori in the United States who made Bond movies over and over?
Evaluation is "bad".

I think that the feelings of the characters were well deepened.
Where the heroine is suffering that lover can not confess conflicts.
An intelligence official watching her is jealous of showing her as a heroine girlfriend who can not support it after all while loving her.
The last thing that the heroine got freedom of not being connected with anyone was a bittersweet happy ending, a bad end with saving, and there was deepness.
As the intelligence worker loves the heroine, I caught him quietly and silently waiting without saying a loud voice.

[Bad point]

Compared to men of intelligence workers, the heroine's lover character is weak.
It's a nice guy ... The intelligence worker who is in a confused and honest sense is too attractive,
To the heroine wanting to protect the life with a lover, it was hard to empathize for a moment
(I thought "I am careful !!!" ^ ^ ;;).

[Comprehensive evaluation]

I think that the psychological depiction is an excellent work though the basic is an action movie.
However, as my heart hurts, I do not think I want to see it repeatedly ....
Because I think that the degree of completion is high, I got lost, but the final evaluation is "good" on the "very good" side.

[good point]
There is drama nature.
Psychological depiction is solid.
Cast is good.
Music is good.

[Bad point]
Especially nothing.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Were you thinking that Nikita and wonderful developments are wearing, was it a remake?
Nikita felt the suffering of the assassin who was far from ordinary everyday with intense action.
From the gap with a happy life, it was supposed to feel the suffering of the assassin.
In terms of suffering, Nikita felt stronger, but this was good with this.
Bridget: I think that this person was suitable for the hero who plays Fonda.
In the first place, the hero itself was overwhelmingly attractive.
Overall, I guess it was better than the original.
Evaluation is "good".

Although it is a remake work of "Nikita", it is a feeling that the love romance which is tricky than the action which was in Nikita is contents is placed on the front.
An intelligence worker who finds the genius of a killer while trying to correct the hero and trains it. Despite being tempered by him, she was impressed with the conflict and dilemma that she remembered murder while loving people and living as a person ....

It seems like the part called 'freedom and dignity of human beings' was drawn in such a part of the dilemma, love-hate, and even being tempered as a killer, one day denying it ... . The woman wants to gain freedom and dignity ... I can see the thought of woman rib, but the best is that heroine maggie's "human beings ..." played by Brigitte Fonda and "escape to freedom" Is not it the thing that the form of being drawn is drawn?

Even though it was picked up there was no resistance to doing evil, even though it was picked up and growing as a killer, when I started to live as a human being, the life that I had walked broke It was a feeling that such a psychology appeared well that gaps coming out, that she got anguish and eventually wanted to quit the killer as well.

In the USA of the gun society and the military society, even when ordered as "shoot enemies!" In such a thing, there seems to be many people who feel resistance yet, while Magee who was not Matmo is becoming Matmo I think that the negative chains of society and problems have come out in the part ... .... I do not want to be bound by such a rule, but, as a price, I throw away a variety of things ... the part that looks painful. Perhaps, I think that there are many such lost things, such as dangerous jobs and those who entered the army due to these dangers.

Even if it was a young man who had become a lover with Magee, even if it was an intelligence worker who picked up Maggie and trained it, I really wanted to stop such a girl, but I could not stop it. Because I love her and thinking of her ... ... the love of a man and a woman who never fulfilled was drawn, and the part of such a tragic love remains in the impression than the action.

Even though it looks like this kind of action, the story of a tragic love story remained pretty impressive, and even in 'Batman Returns', a catwoman of the enemy's role touched the bare face of Batman ... The scene became impressive, and if there is such a romance element than the mere story of a strong woman, the work feels colorful.

Men can not escape from the organization or the rails that they decided. But, the woman passed and the new life ... I felt something like the strength of a woman, and such a strong woman, in a sense, will be together forever with men There is an image that there is nothing like that, such a woman is cool and attractive, and it seems sad. It has become a life in which happiness as a woman can not be grasped halfway.

Also, this work has rainy scenes in the impression, and the men who love the last Maggie, because they love her, let me leave you gentle, the part of letting you free let me glimpse . It seems that the way of drawing that it is different from that of broken heart, because it loves because of love, seems to have not been created clearly in recent works, and I thought that it would be good to create such a work.

Oh, the legendary actor Henry in the American movie, the movie the granddaughter of Fonda played the assassin. I did not know that it was a remake of the movie "Nikita".

At first it seems that Maggie of the main character seemed to have had a raging character .... I was trained as an assassin on condition that it says that government officials will escape the death penalty, and it was the line that we are going to perform the command.

It was pretty beautiful and cheerful Hiroda ... was Brigitte. The act that Fonda played?

But, well, if you are a decent man, you can not bear to imitate murdering a person who is instructed and no grudge whatsoever.

A man who expected Maggie in the end reported to the upper person that she died and missed Maggie leaving. I guess that he is also a child of a man.
