Format: DVD
I don't usually like to watch movies about hit men or cops and robbers. I remember I got interested in this movie because of two things: Luc Besson's movie the Fifth Element, which was so wildly different and fascinating that I wanted to see what else this French director had done; and secondly, seeing Natalie Portman for the first time in the Star Wars: Phantom Menace movie.
Behind all of the dense make up and bad script and horribly non-existent directing from George Lucas in Phantom Menace, I sensed in Natalie Portman one heck of a terrific young actress struggling to come up with a meaningful performance. In "Leon - The Professional", working with a superb director, her acting talent is on full display.
When one thinks of modern day child actors, Anna Paquin comes to mind, in "The Piano", because she aced out some terrific adult actresses in 1993 to win the Oscar. Well, Natalie Portman, at age 12, had Anna Paquin beat by a mile in this movie, since her character takes up about half of the movie. If not for the truly unusual and off-beat story line of this movie, Portman would have gotten a lot more attention for her role in this movie, I think.
If you just focus on Portman's facial expressions and the way she carries herself in this movie, she goes through an amazing acting range in this movie, from hurt, terrified, bored, stuck up, cool and calculating, manipulative, sweet, child-like, and pubescent sexual allure.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the uncut version restores scenes that basically give a harder edge to Natalie Portman's character. The additional scenes of her assassin training with Leon and her efforts to attract and get closer to Leon definitely put her character in a harsher light. I remember from my first viewing of the cut U.S.

Format: Blu-ray
Leon: The Professional (1994)
Crime, Drama, Thriller, 133 minutes (extended version)
Directed by Luc Besson
Starring Jean Reno, Natalie Portman and Gary Oldman

Leon (Reno) is good at one thing: killing people. In other matters he's almost like a child. He can't read or write and he barely has enough skills to look after himself. He lives in an apartment building and hides away when he's not on a job.

Leon's neighbors include 12-year-old Mathilda (Portman), who lives with her drug-dealing father. When a corrupt cop (Oldman) murders her father and the rest of the family, Mathilda turns to Leon for help. This is where things start to get interesting. Although she's 12, Mathilda has more of an idea of how to survive in the real world than Leon. She offers to take care of him in return for protection and shelter. She also wants to learn how to kill people.

The premise is so unlikely, but it works. Leon teaches Mathilda the tricks of his trade. Some might find it inappropriate to watch a 12-year-old girl dealing with material of this nature, but Portman is superb in her first full-length feature. The two develop believable chemistry and love each other in some ways. The only other thing that Leon cares about is his beloved potted plant. The two are continually on the move to stay safe, so it's not much of a life for a young girl.

The movie works because of the strong relationship between Leon and Mathilda. It's interesting to watch her train and see the bond deepening between the two. Revenge is always on her mind and she tries to persuade Leon to kill the men responsible for murdering her family. The final showdown is intense and contains a lot of action for fans of that genre.

Very good movie. Interesting and worth looking at. The main actor and the little girl play their part wonderfully. It is as it says, Professional.

Great and very different type of a story of a professional hit man and how he cared for her and a plant.

Fantastic movie. Great chemistry between Leon & Matilda ( although the relationship feels a bit creepy at first ). I HIGHLY recommend

There are many great villains in film history, but Gary Oldman's performance in 'The Professional' ranks right up there with the greatest! A very well done action movie that boasts great performances down the board!

Determinedly odd, over the top and a lot of fun., This strangely sentimental, wonderfully photographed, very violent black comedy is like
some demented marriage of a sincere Disney film about a 12 year old girl looking for a father (or, in an intentionally disquieting French
twist, a lover), with the over the top darkness of David Lynch, or Kubrick in his "Dr. Strangelove" mode, and some John Woo action
thrown in for good measure.

Sound weird? Well, it is, and there are some huge logic jumps and gaping plot holes. But the film disarms those potential problems by
never pretending to be the world as we know it, but creating a heightened, strange, through- the-looking-glass reality where hit men
are sweet softies at heart, and New York cops are not only corrupt but openly bat-sh@t insane, gunning down whomever gets in their
way with gleeful abandon.

Gary Oldman goes way, way over the top as the baddie, and is a blast in the process. Jean Reno creates some real pathos in his sad faced,
killer, who is so alone that he's almost child-like in his having to learn to relate to another human, and Natalie Portman gives a shockingly
complex performance for an actress so young, playing so tricky a role. A film I could understand someone hating if they didn't get into
Besson's decidedly off-beat vibe, but if you go with it, it's that rarest of film creatures, something unique.

The blu-ray looks great provides both the theatrical and extended director's cut and has some solid bonus features besides.
