Reviews
Mine: These kind of movies often are as good as the villain. Here John is great as the assassin. It is always fun to see how Clint gets his love of jazz into the movies he is in, well done here. Good story well told by an appealing cast.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Crackling, well-made thriller about a would-be presidential assassin who pulls Secret Service agent Eastwood--who failed to protect President Kennedy in 1963--into a cruel game of cat-and-mouse as he plans to murder the current president. Eastwood, as an older, vulnerable, piano-playing loner, has never been better, and Malkovich matches him as the superintelligent loony. Steve Railsback appears unbilled. Written by Jeff Maguire. Panavision.
