It was less than two years ago Sony released The Professional onto Blu-ray “remastered in 4K” but now that actual 4K has taken off a bit, they have now officially released it in the format, presented with a 2160p UHD and in its original 2.39 widescreen aspect ratio. Although this doesn’t have the visual flair, in terms of color anyway, compared to The Fifth Element, this movie still.
That's not to say that The Fifth Element shows its age on the 4K UHD version, it's just that it's no longer the touchstone film of cutting edge and that's ok. Meanwhile, Leon, The Professional was shot on 35mm in the mid-1990s and the gritty look of the film suits the film quite nicely.
Product Information. Leon (Jean Reno) is a precise, calculating hit man--a consummate professional, with no family and no friends. However, he has casually befriended Mathilda (Natalie Portman, in an auspicious debut), a 12 year-old neighbor whose entire family, including her adored 4-year-old brother, is wiped out by some crooked DEA agents.

The 35mm scan deliveries so much fullness and detail in greater resolution, the expanded color provides so much texture and warmth, while he HDR application is so tastefully applied that it gives you the sense you're watching a real film projection from 1994, pristine condition on opening day, right in your home.

The new 4K version of the film looks stunning. Much like the poster image of Leon looking up towards the skyscrapers, everything in the film appears larger than life. Within hotel rooms and Leon’s apartment, Besson keeps things intimate with a stage-like framing. As soon as Leon and Mathilda begin to walk the streets of New York they are engulfed by monolithic buildings. The camera moving in.
Let’s get Physical (Media). I've been collecting movies forever, and I can still remember the first two DVD's I picked up at Best Buy a long time ago: Robocop Criterion Collection and True Romance: The Director's Cut.
