Jackal, The


USA 1998, 125 minutes
Dir. Michael Caton-Jones
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Spy


Aroview: When shadowy assassin and master-of-disguises Bruce Willis lines up a top US government official in his sights, FBI director Sidney Poitier is provoked into releasing imprisoned IRA operative Richard Gere to track him down.

Lifts only the central premise from the 1973 classic, DAY OF THE JACKAL - a pity it didn't lift a few pointers on how to generate and sustain suspense.
