Feverish suspense is at work in In the Line of Fire, a film of surprising depth for an action thriller. The felicitous interweaving of humor and high drama is another hallmark of this tense story of wits.
Clint Eastwood has always been an old man. Even in the '60s, as the gunslinger in Sergio Leone westerns, Eastwood had the squinty eyes, sour mouth and weary walk of a soldier who had been in too many wars.
In the Line of Fire explores this intriguing premise with subtlety and suspense, particularly during several phone conversations between a gloating, you-can't-stop-me Leary and a visibly shaken Horrigan.
