Did You Know?
When the thug who is beating "Patrick the Ratprick" pulls out a semi-automatic Glock pistol to shoot Patrick, you hear the sound of the gun's slide being cycled, which would put a round into the empty chamber. When Leon tells him to stop, you see the thug cycle the slide again, as if this action would "de-cock" the weapon, which it does not. In addition, no cartridge is ejected when he does this, which is what would happen had a round actually been in the chamber. See more
You know, barbers have always been very trusted friends to us. We never have to worry about them.
Uh, who do we have to worry about?
Dry cleaners? Really?
They're not nice fellas, and they're very powerful.
The scene in which Leon is killed by being stabbed in the neck with a stiletto heel is censored in both the US and UK versions of the film to attain a PG-13 and 12 rating respectively. The version shown at festivals, and the German release, are uncut. In the censored version, blood has been digitally reduced in the medium shots of Leon, and a shot is removed entirely of Leon taking the heel out of his neck as blood runs down his shirt. The UK version makes an additional change to the scene where Leon roughs up a thief; throughout the scene, the blood on the thief's face has been digitally recolored to be darker in order to soften the impact of the scene.
