Warren Beatty plays a small-time newspaper journalist who witnesses the assassination of a U.S. senator. Deciding to investigate he then becomes involved in the deadly conspiracy behind this event and perhaps others.
As a conspiracy thriller it’s more than competent. There’s intrigue a plenty, some genuine surprises and enough action for the genre. The variety or locations and the framing of shots makes for a visually interesting film.
Pretty good and ideal for a lazy afternoon on the sofa. Which is how I enjoyed it. And nice to see Mr. Beatty in one of his few decent roles.
