The Sentinel is an entertaining movie at first, then slowly falls a part. It's well made with good direction, good writing and good acting, the problem is that it's not suspenseful, not intense, and just to predictable. Michael Douglas and (the very underrated)Kiefer Sutherland are both good. Eva Longoria is okay, considering she's not in the film much. Kim Basinger however, is a huge disappointment, she's given nothing to do and is wasted. not to mention, the ending is a letdown. It's well paced, smart and cleaver, but when it's over, you'll want more.

The lack of realism in political thrillers makes me feel very angry. The Sentinel it's just another stupid action flick about threats to the american president and a -much less charismatic- "fugitive" that tries to save him. David Rasche will always be HAMMER. Nothing more, nothing less.

I agree with Chris' review and this film was just alright for me. I really think it is time for Michael Douglas to hang up his action shoes!

Generic crime/action film that, because of Kiefer Sutherland, felt like a really short, bad season of 24 (presidential assassination plot! Get'em Jack!). The few twists are predictable and overall this is a weak effort for all involved.

"The Sentinel" by Yojimbo

When a conspiracy to assassinate the president is uncovered and seems to implicate veteran agent Michael Douglas, he is forced to discover the true culprit while on the run from his former colleagues. Yet another in a long line of generic Hollywood conspiracy thrillers, The Sentinel basically plays out like Jack Bauer and son tracking down "terrorists" whose reasons for murdering the president clearly aren't worth explaining. I'm not the biggest fan of Douglas but he is experienced enough to be able to do this kind of thing whilst standing on his head and Sutherland is doing what he does best; in fact, for the second half when Kiefer is let off the leash to get 24 on his ass, it's actually pretty entertaining. Being a Hollywood thriller, it is also blatantly obvious who the traitor is pre...
