"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.

" Finally watched this! Hitman takes in f*cked-up girl, semi-trains her to be an assassin, there's a weird Lolita vibe, but he's a good guy, so it's okay...it's about what I expected."

"I remember seeing the censored version on TV. When Gary Oldman would say "shit", it was changed into "shoot". Yet the violence was absolutely no problem. Ah, American values."

A movie for each year of my life (29 movies items)

"1994: Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. Léon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin's trade. Fun Fact: Natalie Portman's parents were extremely worried about the smoking scenes in the film, and before they allowed Natalie to appear, they worked out a contract with Luc Besson which had strict mandates as regards the depiction of smoking; there could only"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (208 movies items)

"11.1, Netflix, rewatch Tästä ei juuri muistikuvia ollut. Léon: The Professional on selkeästi toiminut esikuvana uudemmille tyylitellyille toimintaelokuville, harvassa kuitenkaan draama ja toiminta tasapainottavat toisiaan näin hyvin. Tarina orvoksi jääneen tytön ja palkkatappajan suhteesta kuulostaa paperilla kehnolta idealta ja varmasti olisikin sitä, ellei Jean Renon ja Natalie Portmanin välinen kemia pelaisi niin hyvin yksi yhteen. Gary Oldmanin pahisrooli on hauska, vaikka ysärit"

2018: The Movie List (9 movies items)

"8.1. Rewatch, oisko nyt toinen kerta. Léon on hyvin tyylikäs, viihdyttävä ja tiukasti näytelty elokuva. Toisaalta, sitä ei palvele useampi katselukerta, koska elokuvassa ei hirveästi ole jäljellä kun katselee pinnan alle. Léonin ja Matildan välinen miksikä sitä kutsuisi on toteutettu hyvin, mutta silti tästä jää puuttumaan syvyys. Toisaalta ymmärrän että Léon itse halutaan pitää mystisenä hahmona, mutta en vain saanut hänestä niin paljon irti kuin mitä odottaisi. Ren"

"27.12. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu, lisää tähtösiä tuli vissiin puolikas tai kokonainen. Nähty herkässä teini-iässä vissiin kolme kertaa, toista kymmentä vuotta pitkälti viimekerrasta. Vaikka muistikuvat itse elokuvasta olivatkin hyvät, näyttäytyi tää silti aika tuoreena. Kuvaus - erinomaista laajakulman käyttöä, todella viimosen päälle toteutettu visuaalinen puoli. Joo, se rakkausteema on häiritsevä, mutta en vieläkään osaa millään nähdä Leonia perverssinä, vaan pal"
