Absolute Power
1997
Cat burglar Luther Whitney (Clint Eastwood) finds himself in the president's doghouse when he spies the chief executive (Gene Hackman) trysting with a trophy wife. When their rough romancing turns lethal, efforts to cover up the scandalous situation spiral violently out of control. Now, Luther must survive a desperate pursuit from the back streets of the nation's capital to the halls of power. Eastwood also directed this riveting crime thriller.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

A tense thriller only by Clint Eastwood's drowsy standards, this movie assembles a great cast but gives them all under-developed bit parts. There are a few smart lines and memorable moments, and it's all pleasant enough, but sustain some tension please.
