Following the Lifetime Achievement award presented to veteran actor Sidney Poitier during the 2002 Academy Awards, film studios have been scrambling through their back-catalogues in search of suitable archive material to release in order to cash in on both the enduring popularity of this actor and his distinguished career.
So, the trailer for Poitier's acclaimed 1966 film To Sir, With Love is to be found on the disc as is the rarely seen trailer for Little Nikita itself, but along with the extremely out-of-place inclusion of the theatrical trailer for the 1996 movie Race the Sun, this represents the sum-total of "extras" included on this DVD. Given that the ownership rights to this movie have passed through several hands over the years as first Columbia Pictures merged with TriStar Films before being subsequently swallowed up by the conglomerate giant Sony Pictures, one is left wondering if production information about the movie has been lost somewhere along the way. Sure, the Little Nikita trailer is a pleasant surprise, but such background information about the movie isn't that hard to find and would have been a non-too-costly but useful addition to this DVD release. Particularly absent is any sort of biographical information about the varied cast members who appear in this movie.
Described as being "remastered in high definition and digitally mastered audio", whatever that might mean, it's difficult to see any noticeable improvement in either image or sound quality although both are perfectly acceptable. A rather nice scene selection card can be found inside the package and the movie itself is included on the DVD twice in both widescreen and television sized formats.
