I’ve been on a Clint Eastwood kick recently, revisiting both UNFORGIVEN and SPACE COWBOYS. I decided next I’d do something I hadn’t seen before and that is ABSOLUTE POWER. I’m a sucker for 90’s thrillers, so I was excited for this.
Eastwood, Hackman, Harris and others make this a all star cast. Though despite that, I felt like Hackman and Harris weren’t given enough screen time to really do their roles justice. The plot is intriguing but the execution of how it plays out could have been much better, especially under the direction of Eastwood.
I still enjoyed the movie, and I’d watch it again, but it just comes up short considering the talent involved.
