”Is history made by men or events?” That’s the highbrow question posed over and over (and, unnecessarily, over) again in The Assassins Gallery, a less than gripping what-if historical thriller, which puts an assassin on President Franklin Roosevelt’s tail in the waning days of WWII. Mikhal Lammeck, an American expert on assassination, is summoned from his professorship in England to help a Secret Service friend track down a female killer hoping to take out the already ailing FDR. Firmly in line with the thriller-as-lecture-hall genre, Assassin’s Gallery imparts much information but skimps on the tension (especially if you know the real circumstances of FDR’s death), resulting in a outcome both pre-ordained and toothless.
