Here`s another blast from a past, and a proof that you can makeprofessional_ver1 a somewhat original hitman movie, although it bases its story on classical premise of a hitman who develops feelings. Excellent cast with young Natalie Portman who will launch her carrier after this flick, because everyone wanted to know who was that cute girl, with the support of Gary Oldman and Jean Reno.

Leon is the perfect assassin, with no feelings, but that`s about to change when he meets Mathilda, and tries to help her. Beautifully directed action scenes ( director is Luc Besson). I can still vividly remember that scene with Gary Oldman, when he takes his pills and engages in slaughter listening to classical music. Excellent movie, enjoy.

Director: Luc Besson

Cast: Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman, Danny Aiello

Fun Facts: Natalie Portman was originally turned down by Todd M. Thaler (the casting director) due to being too young, but she returned to the auditions and performed the scene where Mathilda laments the loss of her brother. Luc Besson was so impressed with the depth of emotion she summoned during the audition that he gave her the role.
