    I think the only movie of his I have seen is The Fifth Element. That was a good one. Not familiar with the movies you mentioned.

    I haven't seen The Fifth Element.

    I'm gone try to find that movie.

    I recommend The Transporter, Taxi, Banlieue 13, From Paris with Love and Wasabi. If you like good action movies. And I recommend Lucy if you liked Limitless.

    I liked that movie with Guy Pearce. I don't think he directed it though.

    1. Leon: The Professional
    2. Taken

    Anything else I've seen from him (Transporter 1&3 and Taken 2) are a bit too over the top for me

    Dude, the Fifth Element was amazing. A bit quirky, but I loved the style of the movie.

    Also, Leon the Professional if you haven't seen it is a must.

    I watched Leon last week for like an hour. Then I stopped, because I found it boring. I liked the action in the beginning. But I didn't like the story. People seem to like Gary Oldman's acting, but I found his acting weird. I didn't like it.

    5th element is one of my least favourite sci-fi movies of all time... and Leon is good but they have a weird chemistry like a love story between a child and a man that never crosses the line...

    Besides The Professional and Fifth Element, on of Besson's best is The Big Blue (didn't direct).

    Because I found Leon boring.

    And it's also about 40 year old guy living with a 12 year old girl.

    I find that weird. I didn't like it.

    This is my review from the rate the movie you last saw thread.

    Lucy 9,5/10
    • Visual beautiful movie. With a beautiful Scarlett Johanson and beautiful images.
    • This film reminded me of Limitless. A movie I also very much enjoyed.
    • It has very good actors. Morgan Freeman acts with alot of class and Min-sik Choi was also excellent.

    You liked Lucy.
    You don't have valid opinions.

    Lucy is visually great.

    I have done a personality test and visual intelligence is one of my stronger points.
