Clint Eastwood United States, 1997

Brad S.'s rating of the film Absolute Power

A rare misstep from Eastwood, all the more surprising with such stellar talent as Gene Hackman, Ed Harris Laura Linny, Eastwood himself and a script by William Goldman. Despite engaging performances, the script is a mess with plot holes abound and zero tension in this supposed political thriller. Hackman (a personal favorite) is sadly miscast. 3/10
