THE SENTINEL


The Sentinel
features a great cast (Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland, Eva Longoria, Kim Basinger, ...) and a great premise for an interesting movie (a dangerous mole in the Secret Service).

It's sporadically exciting.

Unfortunately, the execution of the film is not as intense as the premise; there are some serious obstacles to the "suspension of disbelief" needed by the plot; and too many punches are pulled to make this a hard edged movie. (Also, it doesn't help that the description of the official site (on Yahoo search) is a spoiler that gives away half the movie.)

Why should a feature film with Kiefer Sutherland pale in comparison to an hour episode of 24?
