THE FILM OF THE DAY

Among Clint Eastwood’s masterpieces as a director, we can cite the very famous Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, Sur la route de Madison or Ruthless. But do you know The Full Powers?

Released in 1997, this is the adaptation of the eponymous novel by David Baldacci, published a year earlier, telling the story of a burglar who finds himself the target of the secret services after witnessing a murder involving the President of the United States.

The film enjoyed modest commercial success with nearly $92,800,000 in worldwide box office receipts. In France, where it was screened at the closing of the 50th Cannes Film Festival, the feature film only collected 977,659 admissions.

Initially mixed, the critical reception gradually underlines the importance of Full Powers in Clint Eastwood’s filmography, thanks to its qualities in terms of staging, acting and humor.

“Eastwood exercises the brilliance of his staging on a dazzling screenplay by William Goldman, which can already be considered a classic”writes the magazine Positif. On AlloCiné, the film has an average viewer rating of 3.7 out of 5.
