The Jackal

DOWN & DIRTY:
Thriller: An F.B.I. official, a Russian intelligence officer, and a former IRA sharpshooter work together to track down and stop an assassin whose next target is a high-ranking U.S. government official.

NITTY GRITTY:
F.B.I. deputy director Carter Preston (SIDNEY POITIER), and a Russian intelligence officer, Valentina Koslova (DIANA VENORA), raid a Moscow nightclub where Koslova ends up killing a Russian gangster in self defense.

That man's brother, Terek Murad (DAVID HAYMAN), wants revenge. So he hires the Jackal (BRUCE WILLIS), a renowned assassin, to kill a high-ranking U.S. government official for a fee of seventy million dollars.

Preston gets word of this, and he and others believe that the head of the F.B.I., is the target.

Their problem lies in the fact that they don't know who the Jackal is, or what he may look like. They do learn, however, that Isabella (MATHILDA MAY), a woman who's been in hiding for years, might know of him.

Then they visit her former lover, Declan Mulqueen (RICHARD GERE), a former I.R.A. sharpshooter who's serving time in an American prison. Mulqueen also knows the assassin and has a personal vendetta against him. He agrees to help find the Jackal in exchange for Isabella's safety and a reduction in his prison time.

As Mulqueen, Preston and Koslova search for clues, the Jackal's plan continues to move forward. Using various clever disguises, the assassin purchases a large automatic-firing gun, and slowly makes his way to Washington, D.C.

As Declan and the others close in on the Jackal, they race against time to find him and stop the assassination.

THE ENDING:
The Jackal's target is not the FBI head guy, but the First Lady. Mulqueen sees the Jackal and stops the assassination. The Jackal gets away but Preston and Mulqueen chase him into the subway. The Jackal gets the drop on Mulqueen and is suprisingly killed by Isabella.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
Richard Gere's laughable Irish accent.
