Synopsis:
A ruthless assassin (Bruce Willis) has been hired by international cutthroats to eliminate someone at the very top of the United States Government. His price: 70 million dollars. Constantly on the move, changing his identity and location, everything about this hit man, including his sinister timetable is a secret. He is known only as the Jackal. Aware of the Jackal's presence but uncertain of his purpose, the FBI's Deputy Director (Sidney Poitier) and a by-the-book Russian intelligence officer (Diane Venora) face the biggest challenge of their careers - to track down this cold-blooded killer. Consequently, they enlist the aid of an imprisoned underground operative (Richard Gere) who has his own history with the Jackal. Together, these unlikely allies enter a global race against the clock to stop the mysterious mercenary before he can complete his deadly assignment.
