Maggie Q is the nouveau La Femme Nikita

02.22.2010

We don't generally cover a lot of TV shows around here, but this one actually started out as a movie. Plus it stars exotic dish Maggie Q.

After smacking around various humans in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3, LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD and the upcoming KING OF FIGHTERS and PRIEST, Ms. Q (aka Maggie Denise Quigley) will do it on a weekly basis in CW's planned reboot of LA FEMME NIKITA.

This marks the fourth variation of the tale, after Luc Besson's 1990 original, the Bridget Fonda remake POINT OF NO RETURN, and the Peta Wilson-starring five-season USA series. CW's "Nikita" will feature Maggie as a new Nikita being trained to replace the original one after she goes rogue.

Q is clearly quite comfortable in action -- she started her career in Hong Kong features like GEN-Y COPS (featuring a blond Paul Rudd!), the Sammo Hung/Michael Biehn shoot-em-up DRAGON SQUAD, and the awesomely terrible NAKED WEAPON.

Extra Tidbit: DRAGON SQUAD was executive produced by Steven Seagal.

WHAT!

Naked weapon is a great action film, sure it has its cheesy moments, but watching the hotties kick-ass more than makes up for it. I'm up for anything Q does, even Balls of Fire.

Just Sad

Why do they have to beat the Hell out of a premise so many times. The original movie was great (watch the French version with English subtitles), Point of No Return was actually good and the TV series was worth watching in its own right. Leave well enough alone - just rerun the series.

I like Maggie Q. I loved her action scenes in LFODH and think she's beautiful. I never held a lot of loyalty to the other TV show, so I can't compare it there.

But being that I'm not someone who commits to television shows in general, the only part of me which thinks this might be cool is if they canceled it after a season. Then I would watch it when it came out on DVD for sure. But I'm weird that way.

Man I hate when someone proclaim themselves weird. Weird is strange, strange is different from what you know. How could you be different from yourself ?

She meant weird as in different from what she perceives the rest of the world to be like.
