Critic Reviews for Le Professionnel (The Professional)
Clearly one of Belmondo's best actioners, and a shining example of France's take on political thrillers and spy flicks.
Audience Reviews for Le Professionnel (The Professional)
In "The Professional," Major Joss Beaumont(Jean-Paul Belmondo) is back in Paris, looking tan and fit, after two years away. Sadly, this was no vacation, as he was brutally imprisoned in Malagawi by President N'Jala(Pierre Saintons) for taking a shot at him under orders from the previous administration who disavowed him afterwards. So, you can understand why some of his former colleagues in the secret service are less than thrilled to see him back, except for Alice(Cyrielle Claire), especially considering his intent on finishing the job. "The Professional" gets off to an awful start that it could have probably done without before recovering nicely for a neat game of cat and mouse. The question here is who is the cat and who is the mouse? Even past his prime, Jean-Paul Belmondo still has it, even while contributing to some of the movie's roughness. That's not to say it does not have something valuable to say on the subject of national expediency, however.
