    I love this movie. Its where I first fell in love with Natalie Portman. Awesome story, great action and of course Gary Oldman was badass.

    Leon made me fans of Jean Reno, Natalie Portman and Gary Oldman. That movie has to be one of the best

    loved this film!

    the way the film ended its perfect for a sequel. arent they working on that Mathilda screenplay yet? i think Portman already agreed to do it if the script is good isnt it?

    Great movie, one of the few of Besson I like. It has some of his main little obsession (the police as a corrupted force) but not to the point of being irritating like in his next movies.

    there's "the professional" and "leon: the professional". the professional was the cut released theatrically in america. leon: the professinoal was the cut that WASNT released theatrically in america and it has more footage....really really cool footage!!! it IS on dvd. i got my copy at best buy...so you shouldnt have a problem finding it. i think there was even a sticker on the front saying it had the extra footage...i think theres also a superbit version of leon: the professional...but i was never into the superbits...you dont get the special features....

    Morg, I have Leon:The Professional and its not hard to find. I say you wait for this one though. And to point out, both versions are close-captioned.

    This is one of the few movies that really deserves a sequel.Sadly,watching it makes me fear that I belong in jail.

    yeah, i always thought it would be cool if they did a sequel called MATHILDA....whit mathilda grown up and her life as an assassin...BUT, it would have to be done very carefully and well. get luc besson to return as writer/director...get portman to return to the role, etc....

    Don't know if it's true but I actually heard Leon was surpose to have sex with her :eek: but N. Portman parents objected to that part so it was written out.
