Set includes:

Heist
Hackman plays a jewel thief who loves his job, a lovely young wife alongside him and is happy with life. Things start to go badly wrong for him and having ended up broke he is forced to have to pull off one last complicated job for his fence, Bergman. Will he make it through? Is his wife betraying him with another man? Can he trust Bergman not to shop him? Watch it, and see!


Unforgiven
Directed and starring Clint Eastwood this film won four well-deserved Academy Awards. A great modern Western with a cast of fabulous actors (Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, Richard Harris among others). Here Gene Hackman is playing a ruthless, vicious local sheriff and a former gunfighter who's sense of justice is very questionable. The films is about the death of a prostitute and the story of the race to find her killers and to win the $1000 dollar reward for their deaths.

Absolute Power
Teaming up with Clint Eastwood again Hackman this time portrays the President of the United States. Eastwood is a thief who accidentally witnesses the President killing a young woman he is spending the night with. Having been discovered Eastwood goes on the run but finds himself wanted for the crime. A terrific thriller with Hackman going all out to keep Eastwood from bringing him down.

Under Suspicion
This time Gene Hackman is back with Morgan Freeman. He's a lawyer who's asked to come to a police station to clear up a few loose ends after he has witnessed the murder of two girls in San Juan. Believing this will be a 10 minute interview with Captain Benezet (Morgan Freeman) he finds himself at on the wrong end of a gruelling interrogation.

Extreme Measures
A tense thriller with Hackman in rather sadistic mode playing a neurologist and head of an organisation who are conducting experiments on live humans while trying to find a cure for paralysis. A New York ER doctor played by Hugh Grant has his suspicions aroused after a homeless man dies in his care. His desperate search leads him eventually to the organisation.....

That's nonsense.

It's good selection at a bargain price , not an all-encompassing collection of his work.

Superman 2 and the Poseidon Adventure - FFS!:p

Superman 2 rules, although, it is not a patch on Superment 3 and Gus Gorman. I will give you Poseidon...

Mississippi is also a cracker. " You need the toilet Lester"

:thumbsup:

Agreed about the French connection, that was a classic. Enemy of the State too.

The Hack is such a watchable actor but this is not a definitive selection IMO. Not bad for the dosh tho.

Ordered - ta AndyWedge :thumbsup:

It doesn't claim to be a definitive selection. This is just another one of those boxsets where they've packaged up a few of the films they have rights to distribute/sell. You'll never get a definitive collection of Hackman's movies cos he made them for so many different studios
