My first introduction to Eric Serra was The Fifth Element which I thought was supurb. I always wished he'd 'let go' a little more, as that and The Messenger are so very subtle. I enjoyed his sound in 5th and his beauty in Messenger. I always enjoy a recurring theme in scores, and this he has in spades with Goldeneye. I haven't yet listened to Nikita, but if it sounds like Serra, I'm sure I'll find it enjoyable, though leaving me wanting just a little more.

I enjoy all of Luc Besson's work, and eagerly scour the internet for new rumours of "Mathilda" aka The Professional 2!

I lost interest in Besson's work somewhere after Leon (The Professional). However, I count La Femme Nikita to be head, shoulders, torso and legs above anything he's made since. This is a film that perfectly balances genre, character, humor, plot and suspense. The performances are first-rate, the use of the 2.40:1 frame is the best there is, and everything that I've seen Besson done before or since had never quite captured me the same way that this film does. In fact, it is one of the few films I can show to friends in its original French with subtitles without hearing people bitch about having to "read the film."
