My Favorite Jon Voight Film, and one of my top fav movies in general
1 October 2000 | by (Cali) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of if not the best movie about one man fighting his inner demons to change himself. Jon voight gives a powerful performance as the fixer of the rich people's problems who has a change of heart. This movie will make you feel for jon the whole way through and never stop. The cast is great too besides him, everyone fits nicely in their role and are neither too over done or under done. Jon Voight is the only real shiner in this one but god does he shine. I can easily say that this is my favorite jon voight film and i've seen quite a few of his movies. I highly recommend this for anyone that wants a feel good movie with added in thrills and drama. I promise that you will like it as much as i did.
