Trivia

Pistol that central character uses near end of film is (accurately) the P-64 9mm Makarov. As he approaches the door of his house, he racks the slide. He thus proves an important fact about this firearm now widely sold in the US to civilians, viz. that it is dangerous to carry it with a round in the chamber. It does not have a firing pin block and will accidentally discharge if dropped on its muzzle. See more »

Very good political thriller
2 March 2014 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I don't like polish movies, despite being Pole. Nearly every movie made here is cheap love story or badly illustrated history. Jack Strong is about piece of our own history, but instead teaching "how things were" it delivers great plot, acting, and cinematography in well created political thriller, in which audience will find everything, that such gender should contain. Jack Strong is history as it would came from Tom Clancy, but fact is, it's based on true story and Kuklinski is actual person. I am not saying, that Jack Strong is best movie ever, but in terms of polish cinematography, it's diamond worth of time to watch.

I rate this movie 8 out of 10
