Leon: The Professional was performed in New York with a cast from France and the United States, a film of violence, gunpowder, coldness and cruelty of the society under the rule of underground, signalling for the collapse of a celebrated civilization that is peaceful and peaceful, but at the same time Leon also honours the value of love, the only strength that will absorb all the pain to return people back to peaceful. As a special film of Besson, when the act of violence is bloody but still hatches the seed of love, a “balance” that male lead Leon loves. Besson seems to be fascinated by the ordered stories of fraud: corrupt police into cold-blooded murderers, or assassins who are moved by love.

Professional, agile, always fulfilling the assignment, living simply, without any need for life, every money earned was thanks to Tony holding, Leon (Jean Reno) like an evil angel, punishing anyone without any pity just need to give Tony the job. He pitied the 12-year-old, Mathilda (Natalie Portman), the girl who always sat melancholy in the hallway where his apartment was located. The girl was badly treated by her family, always lonely and lost. During a fraud in the number of narcotics delivered, her family was killed by dirty police. She was lucky to escape thanks to pity that seemed to have disappeared in Léon.

The film has owned a clever storyline because of the unique character images are shown extremely clearly and plentiful. Three people, three fate, Besson had them meet in adversity: at noon, Stanfield murdered Mathilda’s family at the apartment where she and Léon were staying. He placed their relationship in this space, and at the end of the film, their relationship was also resolved here. This encounter is like a relationship of fate, between two people of a moral line and a girl who is in the process of facing maturity. Grudge and love flourish from here. And Besson, he himself arranged that this place would end hatred and let love transform into eternity.

The impressive combination of the style of using images, music, and the great cast has made Léon an attractive, violent, tragic but comical and loveable appearance. The great reincarnation ability of 12-year-old Natalie Portman, and dirty cop Gary Oldman. Indeed, using a 12-year-old child made the film stray out of humanity, but Natalie Portman was too brilliant, she was amazed at the great immersive ability, the transformation. On her face, emotional changes, all showed a mature and mature Natalie Portman very clearly in her later career.

The film also reminds viewers that: If there is no love, people will surely die, even if we cannot see it. But love has possessed the ultimate power of the universe: thanks to love, people know how to vibrate and leave their wild nature. The salvation of love and the real indictment of society is the rest of Leon: The Professional, that is Mathilda has forgotten the hatred and growing pots and the opportunity of greed and despicable Tony.
