Full Plot

Russian mobster Terek Murad has declared open season on the Russian militia and the United States FBI over the shooting of his brother in a Moscow nightclub. He hires "The Jackal" -- an elusive, nasty assassin -- to kill FBI Director Donald Brown. Present at the shooting of Murad's brother were FBI Deputy Director Carter Preston and Major Valentina Koslova of the Russian militia. Nearly no one has ever seen The Jackal, save for Declan Mulqueen, an imprisoned IRA sniper. Upon learning that the Director Brown is a target, Preston and Koslova enlist the services of the reluctant Mulqueen to track down the Jackal before he can assassinate Brown. Jeff Cross The United States is trying to help the New Russia in its war against organized crime. Presently, they are after Terek Murad, a deadly crime boss. When they raid one of his establishments, Murad's brother is killed. Murad seeks revenge against the ones who killed his brother, FBI agent Carter Preston and Russian Major Valentina Koslova, and wanting to send a message to America about interfering in matters he believes are none of its concern. Thus, he hires "The Jackal," an international assassin, to kill FBI Director Donald Brown. When Preston learns of the plot against Brown, he and Koslova seek the help of the only person who can help them find The Jackal: Declan Mulqueen, an imprisoned IRA sniper. Together, Mulqueen and the FBI try to find the Jackal before it's too late. Plot not found

[after splitting an associate's head with an axe] Terek Murad: I loved this man like a brother. He was a dear friend and partner to me. So I took no joy in that. But if I can do this to someone I love, imagine what I can do with someone I hate! The American FBI declares war on us. Then WAR IT IS! Declan Mulqueen: Ms. Koslova, is it? Valentina Koslova: Mm-hmm. Declan Mulqueen: And what would your first name be? Valentina Koslova: Major. Major Koslova. Declan Mulqueen: A man like this doesn't make mistakes. Valentina Koslova: No? They always make one somewhere. Isn't that how you were caught? Carter Preston: Ouch. Carter Preston: Major Koslova ends the debate about women in combat as far as I'm concerned. Declan Mulqueen: How's that? Carter Preston: She saved my life and took out Terek's brother. She did it knowing she'd be drawing a death sentence down on her neck. But when we offered to set her up some place else when this is over, you know what she said? The good guys don't hide. Declan Mulqueen: Fierce woman. Carter Preston: In that country, under that system: staggering. Valentina Koslova: She's Basque, isn't she? Declan Mulqueen: Aye. Valentina Koslova: They say Basques live by the vendetta. If they hate someone it's to the death. It's the same when they love. McMurphy: How did you know whose phone to tap? Carter Preston: I didn't. So I tapped everybody's. Ambassador Koldin: But I have Diplomatic Immunity! Who authorized you to tap my telephone? Valentina Koslova: I did, Ambassador. Carter Preston: Witherspoon, you by-the-book asshole. Carter Preston: I wonder if we'll ever know who the hell he was. Declan Mulqueen: We know all we need to. He was evil, he is dead. And he's gone. Nothing more matters. [the Jackal shoots and blows Lamont's arm off] The Jackal: [referring to the aim of the gun] I told you it was off! Ian Lamont: [after the Jackal's cannon is ready for firing] Oh, yeah. Bring on the spall, baby. Hey, I wonder when we're gonna... The Jackal: Lamont! [quietly but menacingly] The Jackal: Close your mouth! Douglas: [Douglas is skeptical about giving his business card out] You're not gonna call. The Jackal: [flirtatiously] Douglas. You just have to have a little faith in people, that's all. Like I do. [kisses him passionately] Declan Mulqueen: Preston, how about letting me have a gun. Carter Preston: Are you crazy! If the right people knew I was letting you walk around without cuffs, I'd get forced retirement! [the Jackal has shot Koslova] The Jackal: Ooh, that's bad. The blood's almost black, that means the bullet's in your liver. You have about 20 minutes to live. If the pain gets to be too much, you can take your hand away. Then you'll be dead in 5 minutes. Valentina Koslova: When Declan kills you, you think of me, OK. The Jackal: OK. I'll make a note of that. [grabs her head] The Jackal: If you see Declan before you die, you tell him that he can't protect his women. [to FBI Director Brown, about the Jackal] Declan Mulqueen: I'm sorry, Mr. Brown, but this man is no clown. He knows all your moves, back to front. Right now, you've got a name; that's all you've got. So, the Jackal's got a target: YOU. He's got a timetable. And as to making mistakes, he's spent twenty years in a trade that doesn't forgive error. And he's prevailed. You think he's the one who's up against us? [shakes his head] Declan Mulqueen: It's the other way around. [after finding out the the gun sights are off by 3 mm, but the auto-tracking is perfect] The Jackal: Well, Lamont. I'm gonna have to speed-test it now. Ian Lamont: Yes. Yes. Speed-test. The Jackal: So... run. Ian Lamont: [chuckles] What do you mean? The Jackal: I mean run. The Jackal: [icily] Now! Carter Preston: [watching the interrogation of a Russian mobster] He said... "Jackal"? General Belinko: Does this mean something to you, Mr. Preston? Carter Preston: There's supposedly a killer for hire who uses that name. Several assassinations are credited to him, but we've never been able to prove if he even exists. Declan Mulqueen: Do you remember Valentina said "A statement, public and brutal." Now, it always bothered me. Why did he keep comin' when he knew- he knew we could protector the director, especially once I got involved. But he didn't abort. Why? It didn't come together until I remembered what he said to Valentina. "Tell Declan he can't protect his women." Carter Preston: Wasn't he referring to Isabella? Declan Mulqueen: No. Any woman. All women! But remember, "public and brutal." We're guarding the wrong person. [Declan slams a newspaper onto the table] Declan Mulqueen: He's after the First Lady. Carter Preston: This is a manhunt, not your cause. Don't make it personal. Declan Mulqueen: What do you fucking know?
