The Day of the Jackal

A wonderfully suspenseful thriller about the "Jackal", a code name for a successful underground assassin, who is hired for $500,000 to slay France's De Gaulle. Of course, bumping this guy off won't be easy; details and hours of preparations must be taken in order to accomplish it. Beautiful locations, an amazing cast and an exciting plot alone make The Day of the Jackal entertaining! It's only drawback is it drags in some spots. Still most definitely worth your time!
