    Absolute Power=Absolute Enjoyment

    Clint Eastwood plays an aging thief with grace and humor. Love the relationship mending with his daughter, played by Laura Linney. Ed Harris is incredibly sexy in an understated way. And...Judy Davis is just scary. Easy to escape with this movie based on a David Baldacci novel.

    Not as good as the book

    Just read the book, so wanted to compare the movie. The book was better. But we love Clint so it was entertaining.

    A Good Thriller

    I would recommend this thriller as it has great qualities in it: a redeemed criminal fighting an government official, the nature of power corrupting, evil in every segment of society, and of the cold blooded nature of government officials when confronted. This is a simple thriller, but you will not be disappointed.
