Leon is a great film, not because of special effects or big name actors but because of the story and chemistry between the actors.
The basic story is of a child being taken in by her neighbour who is a hitman after some rogue cops kill her family and drug dealing father. From then on the police are trying to find her as shes the only witness still alive but Leon who she is living with sets out to keep her safe.
The transfer to blu ray is very good and so is the sound, but its the story of the friendship between Leon and Mathilda that make this move and some great acting by Gary Oldman. The action scenes are great too.
The directors cut gives a slight different edge to the film as it shows more of Leon and Mathilda together with Leon teaching her some of his cleaning tips but it also raises some questions about there time together too.
A great film, a classic.
