Overview
Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman and Danny Aiello star in LÉON, a go-for-broke thriller about a professional assassin whose work becomes dangerously personal.

Calling himself a "cleaner" the mysterious Léon is New York's top hitman. When the next-door neighbours are murdered, Léon becomes the unwilling guardian of the family's sole survivor — 12-year-old Mathilda. But Mathilda doesn't just want protection; she wants revenge. Training her in the deadly tricks of his trade, LÉON helps her track the psychotic agent who murdered her family. From the electrifying opening to the fatal finale, LÉON is a non-stop crescendo of action, suspense and surprises. This uncut version contains 24 minutes of extra footage deemed too explicit for the American audience.
