Fact alert: this is one of the last films Eastwood starred in that he didn't direct himself. It's also one of the last times he gets to say lines like 'If she looks back, she's interested' without sounding like a creepy ole fella. This flick is loaded with suspense as it sees a former CIA agent (John Malkovich) attempt to assassinate the president of the United States. Eastwood plays the Secret Service agent who must stop him, and his back story involves being one of the only SS active that was there at the assassination of Kennedy. Sure it's kind of like The Bodyguard, really, without the singing. No?
