Editorial Reviews

Bruce Willis is a ruthless assassin, known only as The Jackal, who has been hired to eliminate someone at the very top of the U.S. government. In order to track down this cold-blooded killer and prevent the hit, the FBI’s Deputy Director (Sidney Poitier) and a Russian intelligence officer (Diane Venora) enlist the aid of an imprisoned Irish terrorist (Richard Gere). These unlikely allies enter a global race against the clock to stop the mysterious mercenary before he can complete his deadly assignment.

    There are plenty of opinions about the movie. Personally, The Jackal is one of my favorites that gets popped into the player at least once a year.

    Movie opinion aside though, the Blu-ray transfer of the movie is outstanding; crisp, sharp, and beautifully color-balanced. The DTS sound is full and nicely directional through a 5.1 surround-sound system. To enjoy a favorite movie is one thing, but the visual and auditory experience of The Jackal Blu-ray just adds to the pleasure.

    BTW, often Blu-ray/DVD combos come with two discs; not this one. It is a double sided disc with the Blu-ray on one side and the DVD on the other. If you're experiencing your 6th decade of fun (or more) on this planet like me, grab your readers and a magnifying glass to check the center label to see which side you're playing.

    Director Michael Caton-Jones has created a good dramatic and suspense filled film with outstanding actors and a riveting, masterful plot. Bruce Willis plays the lead role as the "Jackal" a cold and calculating assassin. Sidney Poitier is superbly cast as the FBI Deputy Director. Richard Gere plays Declan Mulqueen, an IRA. terrorist, imprisoned in the USA. Diane Venora is cast as the Russian Interpol agent, Valentina Kostova. Scenes were filmed in many locations in Europe, primarily Helsinki, Finland which also served to represent Moscow, and London, England; Montreal, Canada; Chicago, Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. Essentially, the FBI and Russian agents managed to kill a Chechnyan mobster. Unfortunately, his brother is out for revenge and hires the Jackal to assassinate a top US official ... Initially, they believe the target is the Director of the FBI. However, as time evolves, Declan Mulqueen discovers who the real target is.

    Bruce Willis is chilling and real in his role as the Jackal. He engages in multiple disguises and identities throughout the film to achieve his goals. He manages to get a computer guided high tech weapon built and smuggled into the United States undetected. He gains entry into the US via a power boat over the Lakes from Canada to Lake Michigan and there he joins a boat race in Chicago by blending in. The FBI gets permission to spring Declan Mulqueen out of jail ... in order to get his help to identify and apprehend the Jackal. He makes a deal to win his freedom, then joins in the chase to catch the Jackal.

    It turns out the Jackal has another murder in mind along with accomplishing the task for which he was hired. The Jackal has an old score to settle with Isabella, a woman from his past who can identify him.

    Michael Caton-Jones is one of those directors who never makes a really good movie, but usually there's something interesting about them. Actors must love him because he's certainly lured a lot of the best into his productions. Maybe that's his weakness, a penchant for big names and not really being able to offer them proper vehicles for their talents. They wind up overacting, out of control. DOC HOLLYWOOD is a good example. Cute premise, appealing stars, and what happens? Caton-Jones fails to lift it out of routine romantic comedy. He had an attractive cast, and a fantastic soundtrack, in SCANDAL, the 1989 film of the Profumo/Christine Keeler affair, but it just sat there and failed to give off sparks. MEMPHIS BELLE was more of the same, a war picture that did not revive the war picture as it was meant to. ROB ROY was an aimitation of BRAVEHEART and CITY BY THE SEA--well, what the devil was that anyhow? Caton-Jones had a real success with THIS BOY'S LIFE, in which he uncovered layers of talent in the young Leo DiCaprio, but one is not surprised he is now directing the BASIC INSTINCT sequel RISK ADDICTION. I bet it's a pip.

    However, THE JACKAL isn't half bad and in some ways it might be the best of the bunch. Again the enormous cast of talented actors, among them the amazing Diane Venora (of Michael Mann fame) here going all Russian and Ninotchka is some wonderful outfits and the frosty, wet look of one torn between allegiances. Sidney Poitier is in it too, sort of a waste of Poitier's once great talent. Really anybody could have played the part. Richard Gere strikes all the right notes and plays an IRA terrorist, Declan, with a heart of gold and smart as all get out, who helps the USA solve the problem of who will the Mafia send to kill the first lady.

    This film is essentially a modernized remake of the famous film (which was based on the famous novel) "The Day of the Jackal" by Frederick Forsyth. It features modern day politics and, of course, modern day technology. What the film really features, however, is an excellent cast dominated by Bruce Willis, who turns in a superb performance. Instead of being a kind, sensitive type, as in "The Sixth Sense" once again Willis is a cold, brutal, and competent killer. He pulls it off brilliantly, and it is Willis' performance that carries the film. Sidney Portier and Richard Gere also turn in fine performances. Gere, in particular, manages to really come across as an Irishman--none of the phony-sounding accents that have grated on several otherwise good performances in other recent films. (Harrison Ford in "K19" comes immediately to mind).

    Mostly the film moves at a good clip and holds the viewer's interest. The storyline, which retains many similarities to "The Day of the Jackal" rarely drags, and includes plenty of action. I enjoyed this film, and will watch it again. Recommended. RJB.
