 ;D I really really really enjoyed the movie Absolute Power.  This is another movie CE directed and starred in.  A scene I really like is when he, Luther Whitney, is ready to leave the country.  He's at the airport having a drink at the bar and watches a news conference with the President of the United States, Gene Hackman.  Gene says he will hunt and find the killer of his best friend's wife, whom he actually tried to kill.  At that moment, the frame closes in on Luther's eyes and Clint does his squint that we all love.  He is pissed and says he won't run away and then returns to get justice.  

Great movie for those who have not yet seen it!

I liked this movie too.  My favorite scene is when Kate is in the hospital and the secret service agent comes in and tries to kill her but instead Luther does.  It's what I hope, though he never would, my father would do for me.  I also love the dialogue in the scene.  

COLLIN: Luther, he's my president... right or wrong.

LUTHER: Well, he made a mistake. You made a mistake. When you went after my little girl, that was entirely unacceptable.

COLLIN: Mercy....

LUTHER: I'm fresh out.
