Whenever I watch Air Force One, I always follow it up with another of Wolfgang Petersen's movie: In The Line Of Fire. Where Air Force One is a Action Adventure in every sense of the word, In The Line Of Fire is a straight up Thriller. It's a cat and mouse game as Frank Horrigan (Clint Eastwood) is hot on the trail of Mitch Leary (John Malkovich), the man who has sworn to kill the President Of The United States. The plot isn't original by having an Agent chasing after an assassin. But they do had a nice twist to the story by having Horrigan as an Agent who also served under JFK and placing him at Dealey Plaza on that fateful day.

As good as Eastwood is in this and he was magnificent here, it's Malkovich who steals every scene he is in. I was so impressed with his performance when I saw this in the theater that I was 100% certain he would an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance. He was amazing here and gave us one of the better villain's Hollywood has ever produced. I did and still do think that the Academy dropped the ball by not nominated Eastwood for his role. Bonus points for Rene Russo as another Agent working with Horrigan. This week has turned out to be Rene Russo week and I am 100% happy with that. Me love her long time!!

The movie looks and sounds great and it still has one of the primes examples of film editing to this day. The entire run up to the moment of truth where Horrigan throws himself in front of the assassin's bullet is exactly how you edit for suspense. I highly recommend this as a Buy.
