#03 – Mathilda – Leon The Professional (1994)
Mathilda never actually kills anyone in this movie. But the whole idea of a recently orphaned girl being taught by a highly trained assassin was goo and the reason you buy it is Natalie Portman’s performance. Danny Aiello’s reaction to her at the end was perfectly logical but you still hoped she’d become an assassin because it would have been unique. As I’m to understand the movie creators wanted to make a sequel showing Mathilda as an adult but something happened and the movie became Columbiana – which I didn’t know until I looked it up. This is one of those classic movies the reached cult status very quickly and it absolutely worth watching.
