Michael Douglas goes through the motions of playing an action man in this plodding and pedestrian political suspense thriller.

Douglas possesses an everyman appeal that is used to good effect in this movie to keep the audience securely on his side.

way too predictible

The fast-food of the genre - it "gets the job done" and fills you up, but the hunger for more will undoubtedly return sooner rather than later.

A notch above most such throwaway thrillers.

If it weren't for the clout of its two leading men, The Sentinel would be nothing more than a made-for-cable or direct-to-DVD feature.

Entertaining, certainly, and even the casual moviegoer will have seen worse this year, but this is one of those films you'll forget you've seen within six months.

It's somewhat predictable and uses many cliche devices, but it keeps the audience guessing at least part of the time.

Um bom thriller que se compromete em sua metade final, quando tenta recriar a dinâmica de O Fugitivo.

The story is as compelling as watching the ink dry on a superfluous UN treaty.

More Shadow Conspiracy than In The Line Of Fire, this suffers from serious quality control issues. If you're looking for superior suspense, buy a 24 box set instead.

Basically, it's a treat for fans of 24 and Desperate Housewives to see Jack Bauer running around with Gabrielle Solis - they make a great double act and should be given their own show immediately.

It's a shame that "The Sentinel" wastes its intelligent façade, because with all the unthrilling thrillers that have come and gone from movie screens, this one might have been worth something.

It may be slick and entertaining, but this is also one of the most careless political thrillers ever made.

The screenplay throws elements such as motive and common sense out the window in favor of derivative shootouts and chase sequences.

Pretty much in line with the majority of Hollywood thrillers that work in spite of themselves.

It looks and sounds great, but it sure could have used a more imaginative script.

No new ground was broken, but the point of this film was to entertain and it did.
