What I need is a real gun!
This film has very little in common with the 25 year old ''The Day of the Jackal'', even though it is supposed to be based on that script (but not, somehow, on the novel). A Russian criminal hires the Jackal to knock off the head of the American FBI. The Yanks learn of this and contact their Russian counterparts. They decide to release a captive IRA member to track down the Jackal, as he is the only guy they know who knows what the Jackal, a master of disguise, looks like. Somewhere along the way the target switches to the First Lady.
Expect lots of action and violence, dramatic scenery changes, and major holes in the plot.
124 minutes, No persons under 16 (Violence, Language)
