The Professional 1994

From Amazon: Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) made his American directorial debut with this stylized thriller about a French hit man (Jean Reno) who takes in an American girl (Natalie Portman) being pursued by a corrupt killer cop (Gary Oldman). Oldman is a little more unhinged than he should be, but there is something genuinely irresistible about the story line and the relationship between Reno and Portman. Rather than cave in to the cookie-cutter look and feel of American action pictures, Besson brings a bit of his glossy style from French hits La Femme Nikita and Subway to the production, and the results are refreshing even if the...

The Professional Movie Review by Mitch (8/22/2006)

I can't believe that I have never seen this movie! It's what, 12 years old now? It's the story of a hit man (Jean Reno - León) who saves a 12 year old girl (Natalie Portman - Mathilda) when her family is killed by a psychotic DEA agent (Gary Oldman - Stansfield). She wants revenge and asks him to train her to be a...
