"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.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1019 movies items)

" Luc Beeson, garnered a wider audience in North America, with Jean Reno as Leon, a professional hitman tasked with taking out a sadistic cop, who just happens to deal drugs so. The side, played wonderfully by Gary Oldman, by his next door neighbour, Matilda, by Natalie Portman. Critics and audiences, may have liked the film, but was also creeped out by the relationship between him and Matilda, the fact that there allegations laid against Luc Beeson, which didn’t help him and the movie out.

Coming back on this discussion, basically, Ebert and Siskel did think that the movie was rather well made and therefore not a total disaster so a 2.5/4 rating did make sense. Basically, they thought i

Back then, before it became an international cult classic, it was a huge success in France and virtually everyone went to see it and bragged about how awesome the whole thing was.

"Format: DVD Viewing: 2nd or 3rd Thoughts: Big fan of Luc Besson and this movie, which was his first foray into the American scene. I guess I hadn't seen the uncut version too many times, because to be honest I found the added scenes to be very cringeworthy and took the film down a few notches from what I remember. That being said, this movie is a wonderful balance of crisp action and human drama. Some highlights include: Natalie showing her acting chops at such a young age as the kid assassin in"

Teenage Memories (49 person items)

" The nineties was a great time for cinema, Growing up during that decade was a pretty awesome time, all this stuff was being shown on British TV for the first time and I immersed myself in it all. I remember movie critic Mark Kermode or Mark Cousins would put out mini-documentaries before the films started, giving you an insight into what you were about to see, there was a serious approach to cinema you rarely see nowadays in mainstream British culture. Léon was no exception and I rememb"
