The Professional (1981)


STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Chi Mai – Ennio Morricone
2) It’s a neo-western in Paris completed with a gun-dual.
3) The climactic slow walk from the palace to the helicopter – unseen badassery
4) Cyrielle Clair as Alice – femme fatale !

 

Cons –

 

1) The climax is sad as it makes the entire plan of Beaumont appear like a suicide mission.

 

 

Quote –

 

“The croissant is on my friend there.”
