A gripping, gut-wrenching thriller that delivers suspense in almost unbearable doses, IN THE LINE OF FIRE showcases Clint Eastwood at his finest. In a performance that won universal acclaim, Eastwoodstars as Frank Horrigan, a veteran Secret Service agent haunted by his failure to protect John F. Kennedy from assassination. Thirty years later, he gets a chance to redeem himself when a brilliant psychopath threatens to kill the current president and take Horrigan with him. Taunting him by phone and tantalizing him with clues, the assassin (John Malkovich) lures Horrigan into an electrifying battle of wits and will that only one man can survive. Co-starring Rene Russo as Horrigan's risk-taking Field Chief, IN THE LINE OF FIRE is a high-wire balancing act of searing suspense, explosive action and surprising romance.

I took a leap of faith and purchased the Blu-Ray and am so glad i did. The picture & sound on this are nothing short of brilliant (another example of an old film far outshining some newer releases). Extra's are the same as the Special Edition DVD but most importantly the film is totally uncut. Enjoy this modern classic.
In The Line Of Fire
Movie Release Year: 1993
Picture. For a movie of this vintage (24 years) they have made a good transfer. Not as sharp as a blu-ray that we would expect from a film from 2015, but a good clean visual presentation thats better than a DVD. Score 4.0 / 5.0
Sound. The disc has a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack which is very good. Mostly front soundstage with great use of the surrounds when it was used. Score 3.5 / 5.0
Another score I include is Repeatability. This is open to personal opinion though.
My Score 3.5 / 5.0

I try to buy the best version of a film, be it Blu-Ray or DVD. Never buy on the release date if l can help it. Do extensive research on any film l may want to buy. Many films have been remastered especially on Blu-Ray but even after that, they may not be much better than the DVD version, so beware. Film companies issue more than one version of a film. Picking the best one by reading reviews is really the only way to guarantee good quality sound & vision for the film you want. Hence the above.
Hope this will help with sourcing the right version for when your ready to purchase.
Veteran Secret Service agent Frank Horrigan (Eastwood) is pulled back into President protection duty when a deadly assassin, Mitch Leary (Malkovich), surfaces and announces his intention to kill the current incumbent of the Whitehouse. But Frank is feeling his age and he is haunted by his failure to stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy; and Leary knows this and uses it to toy with Horrigan's mindset.
Good old fashioned thriller that we could do with more of these days, In the Line of Fire is a classic cat-and-mouse plot elevated to greater heights by Eastwood and Malkovich. Horrigan, a bastion of good with a determination to succeed and once again prove his worth, Leary, troubled but cunning and clever, it's a mental face off and the prize is not just the Presidents life, but also redemption. The script is sharp and the film hits its straps when Horrigan and Malkovich are in conversation, they have a definite link to each other, a common ground, even if Horrigan refuses to accept it. The writing shows intelligence and worth, with a Leary back story making him a scary uber villain. Russo always engages as fellow Secret Service Agent, Lilly Raines, her tender scenes with Eastwood well acted, while McDermott scores well but his character is one that features all too many times in cop/agent thrillers.
Eastwood enjoys himself because he is asked to play himself, and the film is better for it, Malkovich, once again, proves he has few peers when it comes to playing off the chain baddies. 8/10
