La Femme Nikita (Movies, TV)

"La Femme Veronica — I heard it took three officers and a stun gun to haul your butt outta school."

La Femme Nikita, a 1990 French movie, the basis for the 1993 Bridget Fonda vehicle Point of No Return and a five-season-long TV show starring Peta Wilson, centers around one kickass babe, much like our Veronica. Depending on which version you watch, Nikita may or may not murder someone, but she definitely goes to jail and is then recruited to be an assassin. In all versions, she's not someone you'd want to meet in a dark alley, as she probably was tasked to meet you there and kill you. She's got mad fighting skills and is difficult to take down (sound like Miss Mars?). Plus, Anne Parillaud, Bridget Fonda, and Peta Wilson also have another thing in common with our heroine: they're all f***ing hot.
