THE PROFESSIONAL
June 3, 2015  | By David Bianculli

BBC America, 7:30 p.m. ET

 

Luc Bresson directed this high-action character study of a hit man (Jean Reno) who ends up saving, befriending and protecting a 12-year-old girl after the rest of her family is murdered ruthlessly. Reno is great, but the engine driving this fascinating film is the naturalistic acting of Reno’s young, then unknown co-star: Natalie Portman.
