In an early scene, Parmenter and Grant meet in an office on Air Force Academy grounds. There is a State flag and a United States flag behind Parmenter's desk. The US flag is on the right, it should be on the left. See more »
"Little Nikita" is a good thriller and I found it really enjoyable. I am glad that the lovely Loretta Devine (who played Reese in Urban Legend 1 and 2) had the honour of working with River Phoenix before his death. Sidney Poitier gives a good performance also. I found it highly entertaining and enjoyable. And once again, River Phoenix becomes his character in this taut thriller from Richard Benjamin.
