Léon: The Professional

 (1994)

Léon: The Professional Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A corrupt Drug Enforcement Administration boss and his thugs murder Mathilda's family in a drug deal gone awry. Orphaned by the massacre, Mathilda is forced to take shelter in the apartment of a neighbor, Léon, whom she knows only slightly. He's a loner and first generation immigrant, who also happens to be a professional hitman. He's never had reason to care about anybody and she has no one else to turn to. Together they form a makeshift bond that will forever change both their lives.

For more about Léon: The Professional and the Léon: The Professional Blu-ray release, see Léon: The Professional Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman, Danny Aiello, Peter Appel, Michael Badalucco

Léon: The Professional Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Léon arrives on Blu-ray with another strong 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer from Sony. The film's bright exterior city shots look fantastic with superb clarity and attention to detail and color. The grocery store that sits adjacent to Léon's apartment building features an abundance of colorful products in the window, and the fine detail surrounding the store on the brick façade; pavement; and even a grimy, beaten, and graffiti-laden telephone booth look marvelous. Likewise, interior shots of both Léon's and Mathilda's apartments look appropriately worn, beaten, and generally run down, with a coat of grime and various scuffs, dents, and cracks on the walls. The image also enjoys strong clarity and detail on a myriad of objects. Whether cereal boxes and milk cartons or the fine lines, ridges, and general wear on the bluing of Léon's impressive weapons collection, the transfer allows even the smallest of nuanced imagery to stand out nicely. Color reproduction is solid, too; the green leaves on Léon's prized plant are expertly and realistically rendered, as are any other number of hues throughout, from Mathilda's blue eye shadow in one scene to the pink and red color on Léon's pig-styled oven mitt. Sharpness is solid, though the image can appear slightly soft in several shots. Blacks are generally strong throughout, and flesh tones never veer too far towards either the red or ghastly ends of the spectrum. Rounded out by a moderate layer of film grain, Léon makes for another winning transfer from Sony.


Léon: The Professional Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Léon shoots up Blu-ray with a high-quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. While the film's themes compliment the action to perfection, it's the action itself that defines the soundtrack. Léon does feature a nicely-done mix outside the bullets; it delivers some exceptional supporting atmospherics during the somewhat ethereal opening musical number. The sounds of the city are nicely realized throughout, but they never overpower the rest of the track, instead working in conjunction with music, dialogue, and additional sound effects to create a pleasant atmosphere. Still, there's no denying that the hard-hitting action of Léon is what makes this track, and from the first action piece on, it's clear that this lossless DTS track means business. Léon's first hit on the fat man features exceptionally reproduced gunfire. Loud, aggressive, and featuring pinpoint placement of both shots and impacts in flesh and solid objects, each shot hits a target with a power and precision that accentuates the artistry of the action and the violence of the moment. Later, heavier machine gun fire and several explosions are heard and felt all around the soundstage, and explosions are delivered with a hefty rattling bass that doesn't overplay its hand. Still, much of Léon is dialogue-driven, and in that department, the soundtrack never falters. Léon makes for another well-above-average soundtrack from Sony.
