5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling, compelling viewing - every time!, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Day Of The Jackal [DVD] [2010] [2003] (DVD)
EDIT: Should probably have said when I first wrote this - just in case there is anyone left on the planet who does not know the story, there is a slight spoiler in here. If you haven't seen it and don't know the story, stop reading!

The mark of a truly great thriller is when you can watch it over and over again and it still grips and entertains - and Day Of The Jackal delivers here in spades. I never tire of watching this film, and every time when the climax is reached, you are left thinking "will he manage it this time?".

Edward Fox is a seriously underrated actor, and the cold-blooded ruthless malevolence he manages to convey through a facade of such quintessentially British genteelness is a real masterpiece.

A truly great piece of story telling from a pre-internet pre-mobiles pre-instant-communication and yet so recent era. Wonderful.
