"The bad guy is in the line of offense; the good guy is in the line of defense: in this film."
The film kicks off by establishing the lead character... Frank Horrigan... played by
as an older secret service agent that works in: the counterfeiting department. This will all change when he is ordered to investigate a perceived threat against the president that was reported to the police by a landlord. Arriving at the scene
(Without a warrant)
he enters the apartment to find pictures posted on the wall of J-F-K; with a magazine that has a bull's eye drawn around the current president's head. When he returns home: he receives a mysterious phone call, & soon learns, that his being, at that specific place, was not by chance, but rather by a carefully constructed plan, by an unknown person that has identified himself: by the name of Booth... played by
He has done his research on Frank...
(& he will use his knowledge of him to get in his head... as the film progresses; much to Frank's aggravation)
& is fascinated by Frank's history of being the lead secret service agent to J-F-K & The sufferings that he endured after the assassination; Booth makes his intention to him to assassinate the president & then disappears without a trace.
At the office in the treasury house: Frank meets up with his old friend & current director of the secret service; along with him is the head secret service agent that protects the president & a female agent Lilly Raines... played by...
The get go with Lilly gets off to a rocky start & Frank is perceived as having questionable social skills with out of date lingo
(Their relationship will become friendlier & turn into love as the film progresses).
Frank informs the others that Booth is dangerous: means to execute exactly what he says... Though they have no idea who he is Frank knows for certain that he will call again to taunt him. He is exactly right on the matter; it continues up until the climax when the final showdown takes place.
The film combines all elements, of a suspense drama, that incorporates love, lose, & action, into one. The digital technology was all topnotch as was the directing & editing; & cast members all gave an amazing performance. This film will entertain many viewers.
I give this mystery & suspense, action & adventure film an A + (Amazing)
