I haven't seen Le Grand Bleu, but - warning, now comes blasphemy - I don't get why Léon is in such high regard with everyone. Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie, but I don't think it deserves the acclaim. In my book Luc Besson always made slick action thrillers or action comedies with lots of style but little substance. Léon doesn't stand out by far there.
