A man who has devoted himself to serving the leader of the free world is accused of plotting against him in this thriller. Pete Garrison (Michael Douglas) is a veteran Secret Service agent who has had a long and distinguished career helping protect the president of the United States. David Breckinridge (Kiefer Sutherland) is a fellow Secret Service agent who learned most of what he knows from Garrison and holds him in great respect. When intelligence data suggests that there is a mole within the Secret Service who is part of a plot to assassinate President Ballentine (David Rasche), Garrison launches an investigation to ferret out the rogue agent, and asks Breckinridge to go over the evidence with a fine-toothed comb. Breckinridge is shocked when the clues point to Garrison as the traitor within the Secret Service, but his sense of duty compels him to see that his former mentor is placed under arrest. Garrison eludes his captors and struggles to prove his innocence while tracking down the real conspirator and eluding the agents who were once his colleagues. As Breckinridge leads the search for Garrison, another ranking agent, Jill Marin (Eva Longoria) plays devil's advocate, convinced that Garrison couldn't possibly be the rat in the house. The Sentinel also co-stars Kim Basinger as the First Lady. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Silly (sort of) Fun by talltale August 21, 2006 - 8:02 PM PDT

Silly but still interesting, THE SENTINEL offers one of the dumber situation/premises of any thriller of late but then proceeds to create a relatively involving hour and 40 minutes from it. An OK cast and some slick photography help, even if the writing goes slack from time to time and there are holes aplenty along the way. Michael Douglas may be getting a little long in the tooth for "action" scenes (although he--or his double--does appear to handle them with some panache). For the rare opportunity to see another scene with the great Jackie Burroughs, however, the movie is worth a watch. (Kim Basinger is better than usual, too.) Interesting fact: the director here, Clark Johnson, doubles as actor (under the name of Clarque Johnson) in a subsidiary role, and does a good job in both capacities.
