Overview

The Package, a thriller involving political assassination and intrigue, is an excellent action feature using a familiar theme and providing good performances by the cast. Boyette Tommy Lee Jones is a prisoner entrusted to Gallagher Gene Hackman for transportation back to the United States. Boyette escapes and Gallagher must find him. In doing so, Gallagher finds himself getting into far more than he had bargained for as he becomes involved in a political assignation plot that he must stop. Both Hackman and Jones are excellent in reprising familiar roles. Hackman is never better than when portraying the decent man in a precarious position, and Jones plays Boyette with the same cunning and intelligence that he brought to The Executioner's Song.

    Cunning

    With cunning and political violence, the rules of the game have been ratcheted up against Gene Hackman as he does not who is who. In a thriller that bespeaks Enemy of the State, only with Cold War hijinks, there is only one thing to accomplish: survival.
