Absolute Power (1997)
5 Star Cast. 5 Star Storyline. But does the ending let it down?
With great performances from a 5 star cast, Absolute Power is easily one of Eastwood's best directed works. The film invokes intrigue and suspense, however, many audiences may be left hungry for more with a quick and seemingly rushed ending. For 4 minutes audiences are almost unexpectantly bombarded with various events in order to complete the story, as if Eastwood ran out of time during production. The completely unexpected and out-of-character suicide of a Secret Service agent, and the murder of another seem to be used in an attempt to ensure all loose ends are tied.
Despite the less than expected conclusion, the film will satisfy all those who look for a 'top notch' thriller and rightfully deserves a place in the DVD rack.
My rating 7.5/10.
