The Jackal 1997

From Amazon: The best way to enjoy this 1997 thriller is to forget the much better film that inspired it (1973's The Day of the Jackal) and get whatever kicks you can from this heavy-metal remake. It's not bad as hokey thrillers go, but all of the original film's suspenseful finesse has been traded in (not traded up) for bigger, bolder action and nonsensical plotting.

The Jackal Movie Review by Movie Addict (4/13/2007)

I wish that people would quit trying to compare this film to The Day of the Jackal. There is nothing to compare. This is an original that just happens to have a similar name. Yes, the story is similar, but so is the Clint Eastwood/John Malkovich story In the Line of Fire.
