The Package, a thriller involving political assassination and intrigue, is an excellent action feature using a familiar them and providing good performances by the cast. Boyette (Tommy Lee Jones) is a prisoner entrusted to Gallagher (Gene Hackman) for transportation back to the United States. Boyette escapes and Gallagher must find him. In doing so, Gallagher finds himself involved in far more than he had bargained for as he becomes involved in a political assignation plot which he must stop. Both Hackman and Jones are excellent in reprising familiar roles. Hackman is never better than when portraying the decent man in a precarious position, and Jones plays Boyette with the same cunning and intelligence that he brought to Executioner's Song. — Linda Rasmussen
