The Sentinel

In 141 years the Secret Service has never had a traitor...until now.

That should explain it all. Directed by Clark Johnson, starring Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland, Eva Longoria and Kim Basinger the movie looks at an assassination plot to kill the President of the United States by some ex-KGB faction who have a mole in the Secret Service.

A long serving, agent Peter Garrison (Michael Douglas) is implicated in the polygraph tests conducted to find the mole, who out to prove his innocence, wants to find the mole and the people blackmailing him about his affair...believe it or not, with the First Lady(Kim Basinger) and is being chased by the Service's investigator and close friend David Breckinridge (Kiefer Sutherland).

Pretty predictable from there on. Whats nice about the movie is the slick workings of the Secret Service depicted once again on the screen, some good performances by Douglas & Basinger (who's getting even more attractive with age) although Basinger does'nt have much to do. The movie is not the best of thriller or 'assassinnation plot' movies made and the so called twist of the 'mole' is no surprise either.

Yet, could be watched on DVD on a boring day.
