Assassination Details


In Assassination, a routine political thriller directed by [[Performer~P95197~Peter Hunt~peterhunt]], Jay Hillion ([[Performer~P8686~Charles Bronson~charlesbronson]]) is a secret service agent assigned to protect First Lady Lara Royce Craig ([[Performer~P34518~Jill Ireland~jillireland]]). Lara hates Hillion and tries to get away from him but finds she needs him when her life is threatened by a series of assassination attempts which may have originated from the White House. This routine actioner has little to offer that is new or different, but it tells its tale at a good pace and has some nice location photography. [[Performer~P8686~Charles Bronson~charlesbronson]] gives his usual steely performance, while [[Performer~P34518~Jill Ireland~jillireland]] is more sympathetic as the First Lady who likes her independence but must learn to trust a man she detests. This film, while routine and somewhat predictable will be enjoyed by [[Performer~P8686~Bronson~charlesbronson]] fans. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi
