Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) made his American directorial debut with Leon, a stylised thriller about a French hit man (Jean Reno) who takes in an American girl (Natalie Portman) being pursued by a corrupt killer cop (Gary Oldman). Oldman is a little more unhinged than he should be, but there is something genuinely irresistible about the story line and the relationship between Reno and Portman. Rather than cave in to the cookie-cutter look and feel of American action pictures, Besson brings a bit of his glossy style from French hits La Femme Nikita and Subway to the production of The Professional, and the results are refreshing even if the bullets and explosions are awfully familiar.--Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.Published 17 months ago by Paul Wyskup
Great and very different type of a story of a professional hit man and how he cared for her and a plant.Published 17 months ago by Sandy Noel
Fantastic movie. Great chemistry between Leon & Matilda ( although the relationship feels a bit creepy at first ). I HIGHLY recommendPublished 18 months ago by Old_Hippie
