The Jackal stars Bruce Willis as the legendary terrorist, Carlos the Jackal; and Richard Gere as the IRA soldier who is forced to abandon the comfort of a prison cell to chase Carlos. The Russian mob has hired The Jackal, whom no one but Gere has ever seen, to kill a person highly placed in the US government. The Rusian militia and FBI must recruit Gere, because they have no idea what, or who they are dealing with. Much action ensues.
