Pre-adolescent Natalie Portman’s got a hit man for a babysitter and a heart set on revenge in this non-stop stylized thrill ride from French action auteur Luc Besson. Léon, the top hit man in New York, has earned a rep as an effective “cleaner”. But when his next-door neighbors are wiped out by a loose-cannon DEA agent, he becomes the unwilling custodian of 12-year-old Mathilda. Before long, Mathilda’s thoughts turn to revenge, and she considers following in Léon’s footsteps. With breathtaking action scenes and a surprising amount of heart, this is an action classic made for the big screen.
