The Professional is a action thiller that was made by Les Films du Dauphin and distributed by Gaumont Buena Vista International. The movie was released on September, 14 1994. The film was censored when it aired in theatrers in order to make the film appeal more to a American audience. The uncut version did poorly in test screanings in America which is what caused the theatrical release to be censored. A uncensored version called the International version would later be released and air in French theaters. The censored Theatrical Cut is what streams on HBO Max.
