Review Text The soundtrack to the 1993 Bridget Fonda vehicle (and remake of Luc Besson's Nikita) Point of No Return is in two halves. The first features the distinctive work of composer Hans Zimmer, who here melds tense, moody new age soundscapes to touches of conventional symphonic scoring. The effect works best on "Happy Birthday, Maggie" and "Hells Kitchen," the latter of which mixes in disembodied vocals that bring to mind Vangelis. The soundtrack's final five songs are by Nina Simone, whose music figured prominently in the life of Fonda's character. Simone's smoky cover of "Here Comes the Sun" is here, as is the classic "I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl." Best is the austere "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair," which ends the album. ~ Johnny Loftus
