Trivia

The film was based on a script that was set to be a sequel for Leon: The Professional.

The story was set to follow Natalie Portman's character Mathilda as she tracked down and killed characters that had wronged her and Leon.

Portman's success kept her from availability and the script was eventually re-written into the 2011 film Colombiana. See more »

Goofs

Hot Chick with guns

If you have seen the trailer then you pretty much know what's coming. I personally thought it was a pretty good flick and the action throughout the movie definitely keeps your interest.

My only thought was that they should have gone ahead and pushed it to an "R" rated movie. With all the action and shooting, I believe there was almost little to no blood. I know the issue with too much violence and maybe they were trying to get a younger audience the ability to see this movie but it was lacking the "pop" factor by whitewashing too many scenes. Zoe Saldana did a superb job in this movie and I only wish that some of the supporting cast could have been on the same level that she is on.

IMHO
