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

A notch above most such throwaway thrillers.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

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.

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.

There was one thing that was way better than anything on "24," though. Her name: Eva Longoria.

There's nothing flashy about The Sentinel, but there doesn't need to be.

Just barely "fresh" but really keeps your attention with unique touches which are now common in prime time dramatic television for free.

Watching it isn't like seeing something new and exciting; it's like re-watching a good movie you've already seen.

Sometimes, as in the case of The Sentinel, a good old rat-in-the-government picture that hews to the conventions of the genre can be an enjoyable, not terribly taxing entertainment.

Nobody's better than Michael Douglass as playing that guy who makes that big mistake, and then spends the rest of the movie trying to atone for it.

Just good enough to not embarrass anyone involved.

And that's really the point here: The Sentinel is about boys, bonding, squabbling, scheming, running, and shooting. Shooting a lot.

The characters are underwritten but the stars' natural charisma holds our attention and keeps us on their side, the action scenes are crisply filmed, and the location shots provide an authentic feel.
| Original Score: B

In an age when surprise endings and indie budgets are hip and trendy, it's nice to get a decent throwback thriller. The script may be manufactured, but the sweat stains are real.
