31. The Professional (1994)

Roger’s Rating :

Should be :

Roger gave this great movie a Thumbs Down but I am having a little trouble figuring out why. He says in his review “.. and if The Professional doesn’t work with anything like the power of La Femme Nikita, it is because his heroine is 12 years old, and we cannot persuade ourselves to ignore that fact. It colors every scene, making some unlikely and others troubling.”
If you read Roger’s review you can see that he has some problems deciding if this movie worked or not. He was troubled by the age of Natalie Portman’s character and the position she found herself in.
But like it or not, young children do find themselves in precarious situations. I thought the movie was really good.
Other people seem to like it even better than I do. It has a 8.6 rating on IMDB (#34 overall) and a 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
