Underrated movie. Sure, it's a bit absurd at times. But that's what makes it entertaining.
Most characters aren't that great though. But I found it entertaining. It delivers on the points this kind of movie is made to deliver on.

The Jackal is not a bad film, some of the action scenes are good and some scenes more dull and depressing than others but I think because of the teamwork put in it's okay... There are some ridiculously stupid scenes that are so laughable though and moronic beyond belief, for instance, Jack Black gets asked by the Jackal (Bruce Willis) to stand Infront of a huge, powerful cannon gun that separates limbs from other limbs and spits out bullets faster than a dog on heat, this cannon would make mashed potato out of a human lol. However Jack Black being dumb stands in front of the Jackal's cannon knowing full well he's going to die, holds out a packet of cigarettes as instructed and sobs like a little girl lol. I've no sympathy for him because he's dumb and got himself killed because that's stupidity beyond belief and so unrealistic because any normal person wouldn't of stood infront of that cannon to die. Besides that stupid scene the Jackal is a good and fairly decent film but not perfect by any means. Still worth buying on dvd or watching on television though. Richard Gere plays some fake Irish accent dude named Declan Mulqueen who eventually stops the Jackal with the help of some lady friend. Overall an okay film. Expand

An amazing movie, a real gem. Bruce Willis stole the show, the character he played was amazing, everyone has a rush of excitement for a master of disguise. We know films and this is a must see.

The Jackal was an impressive movie. good rolls for the main characters and everybody played their part good. But Bruce Willis and assasinators have become a stereotype now ha
