After reading Frederick Forsythe's book I just had to watch the film. Not a scratch on the book, but it does well to capture the overall essence of the book.

The Jackal is a code-name for an assassin who is hired to kill the president of France by a bunch of disgruntled foreign legion members. He is pursued by an astute detective once the plot is discovered, but will he be able to stop the murder from taking place?

Not as gripping as the book, but still a film that will keep your attention throughout. Considering that this film was completed in the early 70's it still has a lot of mileage today. They don't use computers, mobile phones, e-mails, electronic surveillance, CCTV, GPS trackers or re-aligning satellites to get aerial footage - just good old fashioned coppering!

Fabulous film. You know how it has to end, but how it gets there is so well done. The script is tight with nary a scene wasted: so different to some of the soi-disant 'artistic' and self-indulgent rubbish we see today. Compulsive, entertaining and Edward Fox killer-chic . . . Supporting cast are uniformly excellent too. Brilliant film: in my top 10 if not top 5.

Have waited a while to get this on Blu-ray - and very pleased to have it now, The colour mix in the cinema wasn't perfect. however any poor mixes are disguised in this issue. Highly recommended, More from the 70s please !

Ordered this with great trepidation after some of the not-so-good reviews. However, the video was clear and the sound was good. No problems at all.

The movie has many unforgettable characters and scenes, events unfolding until the assassination attempt against French president de Gaulle. It stays in your memory for ever, you feel you've been there... Good actors, very exciting story line, many exciting sequences. All scenes are acted with realistic detail and seem as true as real life. Quality at all times, in the smallest scene. Value for money!! A thriller at the top of the genre.

The Odessa File disk failed half way through, disappointing as that title is hard to find.
