Now, former CIA assassin Mitch Leary is stalking the current President, who is running for re-election. Mitch has spent long hours studying Horrigan, and he taunts Horrigan, telling him of his plans to kill the President.

Top notch Eastwood & unforgettably venal Malkovich
IN THE LINE OF FIRE (1993) ***1/2 Clint Eastwood, John Malkovich, Rene Russo, Dylan McDermott, John Mahoney, Gary Cole, Fred Dalton Thompson. Absorbing cat-and-mouse psychological action/thriller with Secret Service agent Eastwood tormented by sociopath Malkovich who plans to assassinate The President of The United States. Swiftly directed by Wolfgang Petersen and compelling performances by the leads makes for an affectively entertaining experience.
