Ecellent action movie
Léon, also know as 'The Professional' is a well directed and very entertaining movie that full of tension and is also a great looking film.
Léon tells the story of Mathilda a 12-year-old girl, whose father is involved in drug dealing for some crooked cops led by the terrifying Agent Stansfield. When Stansfield discovers he is being cheated by Mathilda's father, he takes revenge by killing nearly the entire family expect Mathilda who escapes and hides out in the neighbor's flat. Léon, the neighbor is a contract killer, when Mathilda find this out she begs him to teach her how to get her own revenge.
Luc Besson, writer and director puts together a stylish and wonderful thriller, which dosen't take itself too seriously. The fast moving pace and amazing action sequences are enjoyable. Jean Reno in the title role gives a sold performance and manages to balence the elements of his character well. Natalie Portman in her first starring role as Mathilda is also grat in her role. Gary Oldman is excellent as the pschopathgic cop even if he's abit over the top in the part, that can be over looked as he is amazing to watch.
