Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... it's Theater Thursday! Every Thursday I pick a movie that I've recently watched and feature it on here. This week's featured movie is, Absolute Power.
Absolute Power stars Clint Eastwood as Luther, a master jewel thief who's just witnessed the murder of Christy a wife to a very prominent billionaire. The only problem is that he was robbing her house when it happened. When he starts to escape the house, the killer spots him and get's his license plate. Now Luther knows that he's already got to leave town because of the robbery but because the killer could already know who he is. The only problem is he doesn't want to really leave town. He has an adult daughter who he wants to remain close to even though they don't have a close relationship.

The D.C. police get involved and begin looking for the killer. They quickly realize that a robbery was also happening at the time of death. They only have a handful of suspects who could have pulled off such a complicated job. Luther comes to their mind as a suspect. The head detective Seth (Ed Harris), doesn't believe that Luther could commit murder. He pegs him for the robbery but not the murder. Once Luther knows that they've got him made for the job, he takes it upon himself to hid out and hunt for the killer. He knows who it is, he just has to catch them and get them to incriminate themselves.

When the killer starts to go after Luther's daughter that's when he draws the line in the sand and now it's every man for themselves.

Watch this great Clint Eastwood movie. It's a seat gripper all the way to the end.
