F/X – Murder by Illusion (1986) Robert Mandel, Bryan Brown, Brian Dennehy, Diane Venora

Murder by Illusion (1986)
Rollie Tyler (Bryan Brown) is a special-effects expert for low-budget Hollywood movies. As gangster Nicholas DeFranco (Jerry Orbach) prepares to testify in court against his former bosses, FBI agents, fearing Nicholas will be killed by the mob before he can take the stand, decide to fake his assassination. The agents hire Rollie to use his special-effects skills to make the murder look believable. Leo McCarthy (Brian Dennehy), a detective, steps in to investigate the murder.

“F/X” beats most Hollywood action films. It stands out with a slick basic idea developed to a proper script that offers twists and surprises all the way to the end, but luckily not as much as “Mission: Impossible” did.

Bryan Brown is just the right man for the part of Rollie. He and Brian Dennehy make a great pair, although they don’t appear together until the end of the film.

Refreshingly original and highly recommendable.
