Leon: The Professional ( Blu-ray )

Jean Reno is Leon, a deadly and elusive killer. He lives a routine life, alone in New York with just his pot-plant for company - until the day his twelve-year-old neighbour Mathilda (Natalie Portman) rings his doorbell in desperation. Mathilda has just narrowly escaped being murdered along with her parents and baby brother by a ruthless and corrupt cop (Gary Oldman) and his colleagues. Leon reluctantly takes Mathilda under his wing, and the two go on the run. But Mathilda wants revenge, and as she soon discovers, Leon can teach her how to exact it... A thrilling, stylish, bullet-riddled masterpiece from Luc Besson ("Nikita").
