Leon, the top hit man in New York, has earned a rep as an effective "cleaner". But when his next-door neighbors are wiped out by a loose-cannon DEA agent, he becomes the unwilling custodian of 12-year-old Mathilda. Before long, Mathilda's thoughts turn to revenge, and she considers following in Leon's footsteps.

Luc Bessons Klassiker von 1994 kommt erneut ins Kino, als Director's Cut, zwanzig Minuten länger und digital restauriert. Der Film wirkt noch immer so professionell wie der Profikiller (Jean Reno), so unschuldig wie das zwölfjährige Mädchen, das er unter seine Obhut nimmt (eine sehr junge Natalie Portman), und so überdreht wie der fiese Drogen-Cop, gegen den sie zu Felde ziehen (Gary Oldman am Rande der Karikatur).
