"The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client. The knife, for example, is the last thing you learn."

On the surface, Léon is an easily dismissible film because it just seems like a simple French drama. But Léon is something far from that. Léon is an absorbing character study that has all the elements of gripping drama mixed with the elements of an excit... read more

I like these calm little moments before the storm.

''Revenge is not good. Once you're done. Believe me.''

Professional assassin Leon reluctantly takes care of 12-year-old Mathilda, a neighbor whose parents are killed, and teaches her his trade.

Jean Reno: Léon

From the opening musical score, which is phenomenal throughout the entire piece, Luc Besson gives us one of the most stylish Character introduc... read more

What other reason would there be for watching this, but Natalie Wood, Jean Reno, and a whole lot of action and guns?

There is just something about this film that makes it stand out more than others. The acting, the directing and the cinematography are the main ones. Brilliant performances.

" Vista: 04/05/2017 Vista por primera vez. Opinión: Tiene bien merecido su estatus de clásico de culto, y de hecho incluso me sorprendió con lo que me termine encontrando, porque viendo diversos posters y los primeros 10 minutos uno se esperaría una poco destacable pero bien hecha película sobre un asesino a sueldo haciendo su "limpieza", pero luego se empieza a volver en una película mas basada en las interacciones y relación de sus dos muy competentes protagonistas y la verdad les salio "

"LIFE SUPPORT Gary Oldman Whether you watch the 110-minute theatrical cut or the 133-minute international version, Oldman only pops up for about 20 minutes of The Professional. Like many great supporting thespians, Oldman strides into the picture, steals it, and departs. Yes, Jean Reno and a young Natalie Portman deliver impressive takes on the film’s two central roles. So why are we left thinking about Oldman’s portrayal of Stansfield after either version of the film? It’s his energy. The"
