Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film In the Line of Fire

Clint Eastwood unofficially reprising his Harry Callahan routine taking up his gun and single-handily stops a evil psychopath intent on killing the president. The climax is typical Hollywood studio stuff with a satisfying screen villain death and it would have been more fun to have seen Eastwood as the villain instead even if Malkovich is fun here. A boring love interest story drag the pace down.
