The fixer with Jon Voight is a movie with a moral perspective
23 August 2006 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

The story depicts a man who has manipulated and has been manipulated by political power figures who stop at nothing to execute their power plans. Corruption via payoffs to highly influential people in government and financial institutions as well as public agencies results in their getting their way.

Voight who is their 'fixer' is called on to bribe and coerce the opposing players on behalf of the scoundrels.

He has an experience upon pondering his life and how he is responsible for the continuation of corruption of systems and people. His father had trained him up well in the art of manipulation and now Voight has a change of character and morales. He confides in a bishop of the church who hears his confession and sees his desire to change his ways.

Things are not so easy when the corrupt officials refuse to let Voight get out of the loop. Voight now faces the reality of what his life-style has lead to and begins planning a way out.

The tension mounts as the bosses apply pressure to keep Voight in their fold. The fixer finally makes some irreversible decision that lead to tragic circumstances in his life. All of this is focused on his love for family and especially to regain the respect and love of his adolescent son. Great story line and acting by seasoned professionals.
