Movie Info

Assassinating high-profile targets is old hat for French Secret Service agent Josselin Beaumont (Jean-Paul Belmondo). But when his assignment to take down African warlord N'Jala (Pierre Saintons) is canceled, he's shocked to learn that his government is surrendering him to local authorities. He is given a mock trial and sentenced to 20 years hard labor. But Beaumont escapes from prison and vows not only to avenge himself against his betrayers but also to finish his original assignment.

Audience Reviews for Le Professionnel

  • Aug 30, 2011
    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.
