The Sentinel (2006) PG13 - 4 Stars

Boy I thought this was a great movie. Michael Douglas alone starring was enough to draw me in, but the movie is a "hang on to the edge of your seat," winner. Douglas works for the Secret Service of the United States and learns of an assassination plot against the presidents life. Working with his team of other agents, it's a race against time to uncover the attempt before it's too late.

Pete Garrison (Michael Douglas), works for the Secret Service and has made a distinguished career out of protecting the President of the United States. But when intelligence data shows someone in the department, is planning an assassination attempt on President Ballentine (David Rasche), it is Garrison's job to add some special investigating to uncover their mole.

David Breckinridge (Kiefer Sutherland), another Secret Service Agent, looks up to and admires Garrison, and puts much trust in Garrison's decisions. He is brought in to go over everything with a fine tooth comb, and undermine the plot. But as Breckinridge examines evidence, all signs seem to point to Garrison as the bad guy. Jill Marin (Eva Longoria), another agent in the department tries to convince her team that Garrison could not possibly be involved, but Breckinridge orders his arrest anyway. Now Garrison must evade his captors, try to clear his name, and still foil the alleged plot on the presidents life, before it's too late. Also starring (Kim Basinger) as the First Lady.
