1994 M Contains graphic violence.

A perfect assassin. An innocent girl. They have nothing left to lose except each other. He moves without sound. Kills without emotion. Disappears without trace. Only a 12 year old girl... knows his weakness.

Leon (Jean Reno) is the top hit man in New York - also known as a "cleaner." When his next-door neighbours are wiped out by a loose-cannon DEA agent (Gary Oldman), Leon becomes the unwilling custodian of 12-year-old Mathilda (Natalie Portman). Before long, Mathilda's thoughts turn to revenge, and she considers following in Leon's footsteps. Gritty and unflinching, The Professional packs a powerful punch.

This movie is not for the faint hearted. But it has a logical storyline and good acting by the two taking the parts of Leon and Mathilda.
