The mysterious Léon (Jean Reno) is New York's top hitman. When his next-door neighbors are murdered, Léon becomes the unwilling guardian of the family's sole survivor - 12-year-old Mathilda (Natalie Portman). But Mathilda doesn't just want protection; she wants revenge. From the electrifying opening to the fatal finale, The Professional is a nonstop crescendo of action and suspense.

Stylish, mature hitman thriller is quite violent.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this action thriller includes some scenes of extreme violence, including one in which a family -- including a 4-year-old boy -- is brutally gunned down in their home. There are also explosions, abuse (of a 12-year-old), and more. The 12-year-old girl develops an unusual relationship with a much older hitman (who teaches her his trade); there's an undercurrent of chemistry between them. Strong language includes "f--k" and "bitch"; characters also drink and smoke.
