Quite good

on 12/14/2012

I enjoyed this movie very much. I didn't mind that there were plot holes here and there-I just didn't care. It was entertaining and gripping and I loved every minute of it. I especially loved that I didn't know *anything* about the plot of the movie as I watched it. There were a few extra surprises for me along the way, which enhanced my enjoyment of the movie.

Editors Note
Note In this slick political thriller, an emotionally disconnected, aesthetically refined master thief is out for one final score before retiring to his treasure-lined hideaway. But during a robbery at a mansion near Washington, he witnesses a bizarre sex murder involving the President of the United States. As the president's slimy handlers frantically cover the crime up, the career criminal--and only outside witness--becomes the Secret Service's prime target. His relationship with his estranged daughter hangs in the balance. Adapted from the best-selling novel by David Baldacci.

In the ensuing cover-up, the career criminal - and only outside witness - becomes the Secret Service's prime target. Adapted from the best selling novel by David Baldacci.
USA Today "...Eastwood gutsily stages the extended opening slowly and methodically..." 02/14/1997 p.4D
New York Times "...[A] strong cast, lively rejoinders and moments of discreet panache....Mr. Eastwood's own performance sets a high-water mark for laconic intelligence and makes the star seem youthfully spry..." 02/14/1997 p.C5
Los Angeles Times "...Sleek and satisfying....Almost a drawing room thriller, unhurried and genteel but enlivened with suspense and surprising bursts of sly, even biting, humor..." 02/14/1997 p.F1
Chicago Sun-Times "...ABSOLUTE POWER is a tight, taut thriller with a twist....Eastwood does a difficult thing: He makes a thriller that is not upstaged by its thrills..." 02/14/1997 p.35
