This is what action movies should be like...without pretension, without being overly philosophical...it's the raw simplicity and humor in "Le Professionnel" that make it oh-so-magnifique! Yes, Morricone's score is unforgettable. The characters...the heroes, antagonists...everything is so yummy and cozy. Belmondo exudes such irresistable charm that at the end I just hoped he'd RUN to the helicopter...but alas, this isnt a Hollywood production. Go Joss, woo! A definite must-see...and the car-chase was good, even in today's CGI standards. Oh, and the French ensemble cast is wonderful!
Yum, yum, yum...
