In The Line Of Fire


(out of 5)

Trust Wolfgang Petersen to come up with a cop thriller that’s a good cut above the genre average. plays a near-retired agent who never got over the fact that President Kennedy died on his watch. Now old demons have returned to haunt him when a psychotic madman () is planning an assassination of the current president, giving ample warning before doing so. Skilfully edited by Anne V. Coates and directed brilliantly from a marvelous screenplay by Jeff Maguire, it’s a great night out at the movies watching this exciting film. shines in a supporting role as one of Eastwood’s colleagues, though their little battle-of-the-sexes banter becomes tiring way before they’re finished throwing barbs at each other.
