I told you I told you I told you!

Ah, The Professional! Some of Portman's best work (and Oldman's!)

Good enough that those names should be in the spell checker! *smile*

I had watched it back in the days that Portman turned 20 (just like I did) and I recently bought it.

US import, no subtitles (don't need them :D ).

grand movie! :')

Good movie. I had meant to watch it for the longest time, finally pulled it out two years ago and watched it.

Leon
the Professional

sebidach [The Forgehood] March 30 2010 4:54 PM EDT

One of my all time favorites!

arg...

that was supposed to be Leon [greater than] The Professional

QBsutekh137 March 30 2010 5:02 PM EDT

Huh? What is the difference between them?

AdminShade March 30 2010 5:03 PM EDT

it's both the same movie but apparently the US version (Professional: Leon) is a bit longer than the europe version.

I have the original Europe version :)

It was a few scenes, extra gore in the house raid is one that comes to mind

Mythology [The Knighthood] March 30 2010 6:21 PM EDT

The director's cut of Leon is a bit of mixed bag, theres quite a few scenes that were cut for a reason and a few others that should've imo stayed in.

Agree with you though shade, that film's been in my top 5 for the longest time and shed more than a few tears to it :)

After this film can defo see why Besson likes to work with Oldman :)

It's as good now as it was when it first came out. A great film.

No love for Jean Reno!? For shame!


There's a lesser known "knock-off" based on Leon he did, Besson wrote, called Wasabi set in Japan might be of interest to some.
Can't remember if the girl was cute for those who wonder... pedophiles the lot of you.
