4Determinedly odd, over the top and a lot of fun
By KG
Determinedly odd, over the top and a lot of fun. This strangely sentimental, wonderfully photographed, very violent black comedy is like some demented marriage of a sincere Disney film about a 12 year old girl looking for a father (or, in an intentionally disquieting French twist, a lover), with the over the top darkness of David Lynch, or Kubrick in his "Dr. Strangelove" mode, and some John Woo action thrown in for good measure.

Sound weird? Well, it is, and there are some huge logic jumps and gaping plot holes. But the film disarms those potential problems by never pretending to be the world as we know it, but creating a heightened, strange, through- the-looking-glass reality where hit men are sweet softies at heart, and New York cops are not only corrupt but openly bat-sh@t insane, gunning down whomever gets in their way with gleeful abandon.

Gary Oldman goes way, way over the top as the baddie, and is a blast in the process. Jean Reno creates some real pathos in his sad faced, killer, who is so alone that he's almost child-like in his having to learn to relate to another human, and Natalie Portman gives a shockingly complex performance for an actress so young, playing so tricky a role. A film I could understand someone hating if they didn't get into Besson's decidedly off-beat vibe, but if you go with it, it's that rarest of film creatures, something unique.

The blu-ray looks great provides both the theatrical and (better, to my eye) extended director's cut and has some solid bonus features besides.

5the best in New York
By Widescreen guy
Leon is a professional hitman, the best in New York. When a 12-year-old girl’s family is wiped out by a renegade DEA officer, Leon takes her in, and a strong bond develops between them. She wants to learn the trade, to become a a “cleaner” as Leon calls his profession. Wonderful performance by a young Natalie Portman, who played the girl. Excellent movie. My wife and I both loved it.

4Reno, comme toujours
By chauvesouris
Jean Reno was my ticket to selecting this. And a young Natalie Portman performed well in the somewhat cliched "tough/not-too-tough kid" role.
Altogether the storyline was a cliche as well: bad man turned to "good" by relationship with aforementioned kid - but then so are most of the movies out there, past and present. The key to enjoyment, then, is a reasonable script and the acting, and both Reno and Portman are enjoyable to watch here. I've seen Reno in comedy roles as well as tough-guy roles, and he rarely disappoints. When he does, it's not him; it's the script. Not so here .
