In the Line of Fire is a very dark look into the life of a broken down secret service agent who is about to be run out of his job while losing the President. His opponent is John Malkovich, who is so cold and calculating you would think he was really capable of such bad things. The acting from everyone involved in this mess is amazing and really aid this movie which is all about story telling rather than action. This thriller is a must watch for anyone who loves the Presidency.
