LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL * (Theatrical Release USA 1994)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

on: The Professional—one of Jean Reno’s best films due to his perfect catching and portraying of the personality of Léon—serves WOW! entertainment across the board. The film means something…it’s meaningful…and because it is meaningful the actors, actresses, directors, and producers took it seriously, didn’t attempt to doctor it up or down. They let the story stand alone. It stands all the way to the bank. Don’t miss it. Natalie Portman casts well as Mathilda.

 Storyline

 A professional assassin becomes a caregiver for a young girl.
