Two Film Guys from the Hill: Mike Canning and Tom Zaniello launch a series featuring two films about DC and NYC.

In the Line of Fire
(1993, Columbia Pictures, Director Wolfgang Peterson, 128 minutes)
Clint Eastwood stars as veteran Secret Service agent Frank Horrigan, long tormented by memories of his inability to stop the Kennedy assassination 30 years earlier. A rogue CIA operative turned assassin, Mitch Leary (played by John Malkovich) is stalking the current President, and, knowing Horrigan’s background, he taunts the agent by telling him openly of plans to assassinate the President. The core of the movie is an elaborate and suspenseful cat-and-mouse game between Horrigan and Leary in DC and elsewhere as the agent tries to thwart the plot. Even after 20-plus years, “In the Line of Fire” stands up as a superior contemporary thriller, one that did significant location shooting in Washington, including an intricate chase sequence over Capitol Hill rooftops. The film, directed by German action specialist Wolfgang Peterson, was a significant hit for Columbia Pictures, earning over $175 million worldwide and also garnering three Oscar nominations, including Malkovich for Best Supporting Actor.
Mike Canning saw his first movie at the age of four at the Grand Theater in Fargo, North Dakota, and he has never lost his childlike fascination for the “flickers.” He has been the regular movie reviewer for The Hill Rag newspaper on Capital Hill in Washington, DC since August 1993. He is also a freelance writer on film, politics, and public affairs. His website, mikesflix.com, contains his current reviews, an archive of past reviews, and essays on a variety of movie-related topics.
