"Nikita" is great. "Subway" is not so good, just don't expect an action thriller because it isn't.

Nikita is my favourite Besson movie. After seeing The Fifth Element at the cinema, I decided to never again watch a Besson movie in a theatre, and so far I've stuck to that rule, which has saved me from suffering through movies like The Messenger and the ponderous Angel-A. I do, however, regret not seeing Arthur and the Invisibles.
During the 1990s, Besson was one of my favourite directors, and I'd defend to the hilt claims that his cinema was one of style over substance. But with The Fifth Element and The Messenger, that criticism seemed all too real: both were incredibly shallow (but pretty) films.
Le dernier combat and The Big Blue are pretty good movies too. Check them out.
