The assassinated Brigadier General (in the beginning of the movie) is out of uniform. His haircut is too long and his rank insignia is only for battle dress and is placed in the wrong position. General officers are require to wear their stars in the middle of the epaulet. This distinguishes them from the other officers who are required to wear their insignia on the outside
edge of the epaulet. See more »
The Package is an enjoyable conspiratorial cold war thriller. I was extremely excited to watch when I discovered Gene Hackman and Tommy Lee Jones were in it as I rate them both very highly. Hackman was excellent
thoroughly believable and accomplished. I thought Tommy Lee Jones was
actually pretty unremarkable in this - perhaps because the nature of his character required some discretion for dramatic purposes. I always enjoy a standout performance from someone I haven't seen much or any of before. This time around it was Dennis Franz. I thought he was excellent and brought the movie back to life when it was starting to tire. Expect some twists and turns and also expect a few almost laughable moments that weren't needed. But overall it is a decent thriller with a couple of great performances notching it up a level from bang average. One criticism would also be the pace. I felt it lag a couple of times and almost lost interest - but the pieces came together eventually and it managed to reach its dramatic conclusion.
