Kill Count: Leon: The Professional

Leon: The Professional was one of the best action movies of the 90’s and to this day remains a classic of the genre. Jean Reno made you care about a man who kills for a living and his relationship with Mathilda (Natalie Portman) is believable and tragic… it’s a little creepier in the extended cut but you still manage to root for him.

The action is Hard R and this remains Luc Besson’s masterpiece.

PLOT: Mathilda is only 12 years old, but is already familiar with the dark side of life: her abusive father stores drugs for corrupt police officers, and her mother neglects her. Léon, who lives down the hall, tends to his houseplants and works as a hired hitman for mobster Tony (Danny Aiello).

When her family is murdered by crooked DEA agent Stansfield (Gary Oldman), Mathilda joins forces with a reluctant Léon to learn his deadly trade and avenge her family’s deaths.

But how many bad guys were taken out by the world’s friendliest killer? Let’s take a look courtesy of All Outta Bubblegum.

Leon Kill Count: 30

That’s quite an impressive number; in fact it’s got me in the mood to watch it this weekend.
