  1. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    I quote Jeff Rosenbaum/Chicago Reader: "Clint Eastwood plays a secret service agent - actually Dirty Harry in disguise with minor variations." All is said, nothing to add. Solid entertainment.

  2. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    Senza infamia e senza lode,un altro mediocre lavoro di Petersen,che in questo lavoro ha una regia davvero piatta,sgrana tutto lo sgranabile e non riesce nemmeno a coinvolgere con i duetti tra Clint ed un John iper-macchiettizzato. Fuori tempo massimo la storia con la Russo ed in più un finale holywoodiano superbuonista: si dimentica in 7 minuti.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    Malgré une étonnante présence de John Malkovich, cette oeuvre véhicule tous les poncifs du film d'action yankee et confirme l'évidente manque de finesse et de subtilité d'un cinéaste d'origine teutonne, bon tâcheron sans âme et sans créativité aucunes... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Allison Rung's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    This was fun. Semi-relatedly I wonder what it is about 90s realism that demands a quartet playing Brandenburg at fancy parties. Or was that just what happened??

  5. Ethan's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    This is a nice little thriller that gives Clint Eastwood another outlet to be badass.

  6. Daniel S.'s rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    John Malkovich is tremendous here. Highly recommended.

  7. Matt Rolls's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    A solid, over-looked political thriller.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    Good but somewhat over=rated cat and mouse thriller from Petersen. Clint Eastwood was very good here in one of the early performances to acknowledge his true age. Malkovich, so much better in so many films, however rode this one to an Academy Award nomination. A few good scenes, a few good lines and not to bad a way to spend an afternoon. "I know something about pigeons..."

  9. Easton Dubois's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    Malkovich fury is unlike any other fury.

  10. Zach Closs's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

    A very generic thriller that shows its age, but the performances are superb. Clint in particular is excellent; his standard hardass persona is offset by moments of down-to-earth charisma, giddy wisdom and deep-seated shame and guilt. Malkovich had played this role before and he's played it again since, but that doesn't make him any less menacing or creepy here.
