The Professional

The movie, i.e.

1994 - Jean Reno, Natalie Portman, Danny Aiello, Gary Oldman.

Just happened to surf to this on the TV, about half way through. Once again, had to watch it 'til the end. I luvvv this movie! Anyone else a fan of this movie, or did you think it sucked?

One of my all time favorites. "The Professional" is the title they gave the film when they edited it for the USA to protect our fragile little minds. Look for a copy of "Leon", thats the whole movie unedited.

Re: The Professional

G-Force, I noticed the "Leon" title while I was doing a little web surfing regarding the movie, but didn't know about that - thanks for the info! What a great movie!

Re: The Professional

Have to chime in here. I think The Professional is a masterful movie,
and a sterling example of excellence in the film arts. Most definitely
one of my favorites.

Re: The Professional

Yeah, Leon is awesome. Not that I'm a pedophile or anything but you could tell that Natalie Portman was gonna be nice when she turned 18...or maybe 17....hehe.

Re: The Professional

Never heard of Hudson Hawk, but will make it a point to find it! I like Danny!

Thanks Depo

This is what I love about posting here - you start out with your own point (of view), and all sorts of tangents work their way in...

Re: The Professional

One of my all time favorites, first time I watched it I hit rewind on the vcr and watched it again.
Leon is like the directors cut, brilliant

When Bruce Willis was asked in an interview if he had any regrets his only one was Hudson Hawk, it stinks!

I'm going to do a study on how many peoples favorite all time movie is Shawshank Redemption, it's mine for sure, I LOVE that movie, seems to be everyones fav

As I said it is not your typical movie.... It bombed in the theatres. But it was the highest sales in Tape Sales ever.

It is a good movie, artistic in nature..... not a blockbuster movie

Shawshank is one of the best movies ever......
