I really enjoyed Steve Sohmer's book and this is one of the few movie adaptations that is just as fine as the book was. This is the best political thriller since The Manchurian Candidate. It is really bone chilling as a matter of fact. Linda Kozlowski deserves so much more credit then given, she is an awesome actress. The best performance in this film however, is Robert Loggia's as Agent Mancuso. This man is one of the best actors in the business who has never been given the credit due him. He is excellent as the tired, cynical agent who still has courage and idealism and a willingness to fight for what is right. There is not another actor who could have played this role better. He dominates every scene he is in. There was a tv series called Mancuso FBI that came on the air shortly afterwards to continue Loggia's great character only it was cancelled (!). Loggia's Mancuso is a lot like Jack Klugmans Doctor Quincy because he showed how one ordinary person who cares can make an extraordinary difference.
