    Synopsis


    The Peacemaker
    The first motion picture produced by DreamWorks SKG, The Peacemaker (1997) was a spy thriller that married the exotic locations and derring-do of James Bond with the high-tech obsession and post-Cold War politics of Tom Clancy. Greedy Russian military officers crash two trains into each other, the warheads aboard one causing a nuclear blast. The accident is a cover for the theft of some of the weapons for sale to terrorists and rogue governments. In the U.S., intelligence officer Lt. Col. Tom Devoe (George Clooney), isn't fooled. Neither is Dr. Julia Kelly (Nicole Kidman), the acting head of a White House task force on nuclear smuggling. Devoe and Kelly team up to find the nukes, and they are able to stop the transfer of the weapons in a raid at the Iranian border, but one warhead is missing. It's in the hands of Dusan Gavrich (Marcel Iures), a grief-stricken terrorist planning to call the world's attention to the war in the former Soviet Union with a nuclear explosion in Manhattan. Although fictional, The Peacemaker was based on the magazine article "One Point Safe" by Andrew Cockburn and Leslie Cockburn, a factual investigative news report about nuclear weapons smuggling in Russia. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      This was made pre-9/11 in a genre style that is similar to a Tom Clancy type of thriller. This was a good vehicle for George Clooney, but he plays it with a typical bravado, and Nicole tends to overact her part which tends to lessen the tension of the film at times. But it still has a good plot and excellent character actors who carry the film with real seriousness.

      I love this movie not only for its sonic prowess, but because I am a junkie for this genre of movie. Although not always a huge Clooney or Kidman fan - they both "work" in this movie. A movie like this is always relevant during the times we live in and that is why I am drawn to movies like this and watch them over and over. It also gives one pause to ponder the motivations of each of the characters - including the "antagonists"'.

      This is a decent movie by director Mimi Leder about the risk of a terrorist getting a nuke and bringing it to the US. The plot moves and George Clooney does an admirable job as a special ops soldier, with Nicole Kidman as his executive branch partner.

      George Clooney and Nicole Kidman really brought this movie to life. What great casting. It really works. Good chemistry between them helps, and a story that could be as real today as during Cold War times.
