Great Clint Eastwood flick. Suspenseful!
I’m guilty of over looking this Eastwood movie, so I finally gave it a chance. I was pleasantly surprised, it was better than I expected.
Great political thriller. Eastwood and Malkovich have a great cat and mouse dynamic. It has aged perfectly and is still effective.
A taut thriller with solid work from Clint as a Secret Service agent trying to prevent history from repeating itself
A slow burn but great acting from Clint Eastwood and John Malkovich and their dialogue will keep you interested all the way through!
Character actors galore surround a good Eastwood vs. Malkovich thriller
Eastwood and malcovich in a great cat and mouse movie. Keeps you interested throughout the entire production.
Overlong story to a well made film otherwise, but could have done with a bit of fine trimming on the drama & punched up the action scenes!
I would have rated it awful not for the dreadful part but the stars. Not for me, but the acting was amazing—more of a sleeper to me.
