F/X (1986)

Rating: ***
Cast: Brian Dennehy, Bryan Brown

A bizarre, but enjoyable thriller about a cinematic special effects expert (Bryan Brown) who is hired by the Federal Witness Protection Agency to fake an assassination for them. Not surprisingly, he gets double-crossed by crooked agents and has to use his skill and wits to save himself and clear his name. Brian Dennehy shows up as the cop who's always on his tail, but ends up helping him in the end. Fun and exciting, with some clever, if not silly, implementation of special effects.
