  • My only other complaint is that the gal doing the Marilyn Monroe voice was horrible

      From 2007, Jump! stars Patrick Swayze as a Jewish lawyer in Austria who defends a young man accused of murdering his father. This was Swayze’s last real theatrical appearance in a starring role. He did film a television movie this same year and then did a cameo in another film, but this was the final movie in which he starred.

      Swayze was very strong

      as the real-life attorney, Richard Pressburger. He had intensity and passion both in his portrayal, and there was something wonderful about seeing him looking so good.

      Ben Silverstone plays Phillippe Halsman, who never had time to grieve and resolve his conflicted feelings about his father before having to fight for his freedom. The real Halsman went on to be the most published photographer in the history of Life magazine.

      For much of the movie, the viewer really isn’t sure what happened to Halsman’s father. We see the reality depicted in brief flashbacks. In a sense, he was a tormented youth who then had to deal with tremendous guilt.

      The Austrian scenery was fantastic and really lent to the authenticity of the film. You just can’t recreate the type ...

      of locales where they shot in a studio. It makes a difference to do it on the spot.

      Sybil Danning had a provocative role in Jump! but my problem with all the men ogling her is that I didn’t think she looked that hot.

      My only other complaint is that the gal doing the Marilyn Monroe voice was horrible. There are a lot of good

      impressionists out there who can do a good Marilyn. This gal was not one of them.

      The historical merits of this film are many as it tells an important story about the beginning of the Nazi regime in Austria and how that power spread over the years. It’s pretty powerful, but in a subtle way.

      I liked Jump! quite a bit, and I was very pleased with Swayze’s performance.
