Jean Reno (Mission: Impossible, Ronin, The Crimson Rivers), Gary Oldman (Sid And Nancy, Romeo Is Bleeding, The Dark Knight), Danny Aillo (Fingers, Do The Right Thing, A Brooklyn State Of Mind) and Natalie Portman (V For Vendetta, Goya's Ghost, Mars Attacks) in her film debut, all star in this highly influential, seminal 90s action/thriller.

Directed by Luc Besson (Subway, The Big Blue, Nikita, The Fifth Element), Leon is the controversial and unforgettable story of an unlikely friendship within a brutal and violent world. Twelve-year-old Mathilda lives within the desperate confines of a squalid New York apartment block. On returning from a shopping trip Mathilda finds that her abusive, dysfunctional family (and her beloved younger brother) have been slaughtered by a psychotic, drug dealing police officer. In fear of her life she takes refuge with her reluctant, mysterious and solitary neighbour. His name is Leon and he's one of the world's deadliest assassins. And while Mathilda begins to teach him how to live, Leon begins to teach her how to kill.

 Classic film comes to blu ray.

Classic film by Luc Besson comes to blu ray. Directors cut extends the film and includes the cut scene where the two main characters discuss sex. PQ of this transfer isnt spectacular but any film of this age, unless they spend tens of thousands restoring the film and minting a new hd remaster will show at least a bit of age. I was more than happy and its still an upgrade on the dvd releases. Grain is present but never to a point of checking if i put a dvd in by mistake! Overall 4/5 stars. classic film with 2 cuts of the film but please buy with your PQ expectations at realistic levels. Enjoy!

 better picture than the dvd

I was really impressed with this film when i seen it years ago and even more now. so when i seen on here for a bargin price i thought i would snap it up. It's a good story line great cast in Gary Oldman, Jean Reno, Natalie Portman, the action scenes in it were very good aswell especialy at the end. I would recommend this dvd to anybody who is thinking about buying it and its even better on blu-ray i must have for ur dvd collection.
