Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 02/14/1997
"...Eastwood gutsily stages the extended opening slowly and methodically..."
New York Times - 02/14/1997
"...[A] strong cast, lively rejoinders and moments of discreet panache....Mr. Eastwood's own performance sets a high-water mark for laconic intelligence and makes the star seem youthfully spry..."
Los Angeles Times - 02/14/1997
"...Sleek and satisfying....Almost a drawing room thriller, unhurried and genteel but enlivened with suspense and surprising bursts of sly, even biting, humor..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 02/14/1997
"...ABSOLUTE POWER is a tight, taut thriller with a twist....Eastwood does a difficult thing: He makes a thriller that is not upstaged by its thrills..."

Product Description:

In this slick political thriller, an emotionally disconnected, aesthetically refined master thief is out for one final score before retiring to his treasure-lined hideaway. But during a robbery at a mansion near Washington, he witnesses a bizarre sex murder involving the President of the United States. As the president's slimy handlers frantically cover the crime up, the career criminal--and only outside witness--becomes the Secret Service's prime target. His relationship with his estranged daughter hangs in the balance. Adapted from the best-selling novel by David Baldacci.
