    Synopsis


    The Package
    The Package, a thriller involving political assassination and intrigue, is an excellent action feature using a familiar theme and providing good performances by the cast. Boyette (Tommy Lee Jones) is a prisoner entrusted to Gallagher (Gene Hackman) for transportation back to the United States. Boyette escapes and Gallagher must find him. In doing so, Gallagher finds himself getting into far more than he had bargained for as he becomes involved in a political assignation plot that he must stop. Both Hackman and Jones are excellent in reprising familiar roles. Hackman is never better than when portraying the decent man in a precarious position, and Jones plays Boyette with the same cunning and intelligence that he brought to The Executioner's Song. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      A politically charged chase thriller from the very late 1980's when the cold war was winding down. Gene Hackman and Tommy Lee Jones are excellent in their roles. The Blu-ray AV quality seems typical for an older movie. From the director who gave us Under Siege and The Fugitive. Give The Package a watch, you won't regret it.

      This is a good old fashion thriller. Not much car chases, but the story holds you to the end.
