"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 (1880 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.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: It’s a well paced, and made action thriller film. Jean Reno, as Leon, and Natalie Portman as Matilda. Gary Oldman, is absolutely chilling as the main villain Norman Stanfield. Cons: There is just something weirdly, off putting about the relationship between Leon and Matilda. All things considered. The depiction of Matilda, may have not aged that well. All things considered."

This is Cinema (92 movies items)

"Es una historia bastante conmovedora sobre un asesino que salva a una niña de que la maten unos policías corruptos. Dirán que es turbio por como se maneja en ciertas escenas, pero creo que la intención es más mostrar los deseos de los personajes principales: León aferrándose a la idea de una infancia que nunca tuvo y Matilda queriendo demostrar ser una adulta a pesar de su actitud inmadura. Conmovedora historia con una dirección y actuaciones fenomenales."
