Not bad, and it stars Sherilyn!
10 February 2000 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

The Assassination File, starring several familiar faces from TV, was a pretty good political mystery/thriller. I found Sherilyn Fenn believable as a former FBI agent who has to eventually find out who killed a presidential candidate she was responsible for guarding.

The supporting characters did a good job with their roles; I was never sure who was trustworthy, which is a plus with who-done-it movies.

I found myself wanting the story to go on after the conclusion because I really cared about the main characters. I think Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks, Boxing Helena) is probably the most beautiful actress working, so I may be a little prejudiced, but I thought she did a great job in this film. I liked it (and her) enough to rent some more of her older films to see.

Score: 7
