The professional is Leon (Jean Reno), an immigrant hitman for the Manhattan mafia who develops a dubious yet engaging relationship with Mathilda. A hardened 12-year-old girl (a young Natalie Portman), she seeks the killer’s tutelage when her family is slaughtered by a corrupt DEA agent. With the girl out for revenge and the bad cop looking to eliminate threats to his security, it’s only a matter of time before bullets fly and body counts rise. But Besson’s saving grace is that he’s equally interested in the humanity of his beastly scenario. (Jeff Shannon, Seattle times)
