When I first watched the directors cut I was like wtf! The theatrical cut did a good job of making Leon a father figure for Matilda. Directors cut has mad pedo vibes.

Movies a classic, but the man clearly had mental issues. Matilda was fast as fu*k lol but in the end I thought he looked at her like a daughter

It openly had pedophilic undertones, especially the extended version.

People weren't really having all these internet discussions when it was released.

It's not just "pedo vibes," it's an emotional relationship. It's really going on in the movie.

One of my all time favorites honestly, the European cut is even worse than the American if you thought this was suspect

Yeah that's where there's no excuses, it's just open.

They come close to having a "scene."

There's all kinds of stuff going around in this society.

did you really just watch this for the first time now? yes we all know the story of this movie and yes it is still the goat and yes Gary Oldman acting in this is better heaths and joaquin phoenixs jokers. there is nothing that can be said about this movie that hasnt already been said. the best hit man movie ever made hands down.. the love story part was very weird but made the story what it was. two people from broken worlds finding a world together. could it have been made today no.. was it expectable what the dude did in the movie no... but was the movie one of a kind and the best to ever do it.. hella yes it was... could it have been done with out the chimo sh*t..
[spoiler - click to view]

.. thats why they had to fall in love... some say other female hitman movies were to sequel to this sh*t but that has never been proven.. in the end this flick can never be cancelled... even if it was id still watch it.

I absolutely love the movie but I always understood that Leone in the movie basically had never matured into adulthood and he loved Matilda not as a father but loved her on another level that you can see based off his reactions. He became her protector when he let her in his room even knowing that she was suppose to die but he went against his training. Their relationship was childlike teenage puppy love but when his switch turned on he was the ultimate a*sassin.

Looking at this now, I can definitely see the pedo vibes. However, this was NOT controversial for that AT ALL when it first came out. Not many people knew the director's history. Plus, society has tremendously changed now and it has programmed us to look at every interaction between male men and female children in an inappropriate manner.

This movie definitely could not be made today and if I watched it today for the first time, it would probably comes across as lightweight cringe. With that being said, the majority of the people didn't look at the movie in that manner when it was first released.

Top 10 all time

The issue was the fast a*s lil girl though


Leon never came across as a pedo. Just a guy who isn't socially literate and unsure of how to handle the situation.

He's like Rainman, but his skill is guns instead of math.
