How do you stop an assassin who has no identity?

Hired by a powerful member of the Russian mafia to avenge an FBI sting that left his brother dead, a psychopathic hitman known only as The Jackal proves an elusive target for the people charged with the task of bringing him down: a deputy FBI director, a Russian MVK Major, and a jailed IRA terrorist who can recognize him.

Der Schakal
  • a.k.a. Der Schakal - The Jackal

Niemand kennt seine Identität, sein Ziel, seinen Zeitplan. Für ein Kopfgeld von 70 Millionen Dollar angeheuert, soll der Schakal eine der prominentesten Polit-Persönlichkeiten der Welt öffentlich töten. FBI und KGB setzen alles daran, das Attentat zu verhindern. Ihre Chancen dürftig. Der Killer ist zu schnell, zu wandlungsfähig, zu kaltblütig. Wo immer die Geheimdienste hinkommen, finden sie nur blutige Spuren. Ihre einzige Hoffnung ist jemand, der Gewalt aus erster Hand kennt und den Schakal womöglich identifizieren kann. Jemand wie der zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilte Ex-Terrorist Declan Mulqueen. Er gibt sein Wort, nicht zu flüchten. Wird er das Versprechen halten? Die Uhr tickt unerbittlich ...

Le Chacal

Le FBI est sur les dents. Un tueur implacable a été engagé par une mystérieuse organisation pour supprimer l'une des plus importantes personnalités politiques des États-Unis. Surnommé le Chacal, cet homme reste insaisissable, changeant constamment d'identité. Carter Preston, directeur adjoint du FBI, affronte la plus difficile mission de sa carrière. Pour la circonstance, il fait équipe avec Valentina Koslova, major des services de renseignement russes. Ils demandent à Declan Mulqueen, un familier de l'espionnage et du terrorisme ayant côtoyé le Chacal, de s'associer avec eux.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Un killer senza scrupoli viene assoldato da un'organizzazione criminale internazionale per eliminare la moglie del Presidente degli Stati Uniti. Il prezzo pattuito è 70 milioni di dollari. L'uomo è abilissimo nel trasformarsi, nell'apparire e subito scomparire. Di lui si conosce solo il soprannome, the Jackal. Venuta a conoscenza della situazione, l'FBI cerca opportune contromisure. Il Vice direttore dei servizi segreti Preston ha il compito di individuare e fermare the Jackal prima che sia troppo tardi. Insieme all'agente russo Valentina Koslova, Preston capisce che l'unico modo per scovare il killer è affidarsi a qualcuno che lo conosce soprattutto perché ragiona come lui. Controvoglia, si affida allora a Declan Mulqueen, un irlandese attualmente in prigione per fatti di terrorismo.
