I think it was a much better film than just "pretty good"....

This film was rated 8.6 by IMDB. For those of you who know how IMDB gives out those ratings to movies and the range these ratings usually take, that is an astounding rating. It's in the same league as films like "The Godfather" and "Shawshank Redemption" and other films you might know....
Funny you should mention The Shawshank Redemption, because I think it's waaaay overrated. Like Leon, IMHO it was a good but not stupendous movie. So having a great IMDB number is, to me at least, no guarantee of any movie being great.
