The Sentinel Reviews

April 27, 2006
A mediocre time-waster
April 25, 2006
[The film] has more holes than Bush's war plan and employs less fluent English.

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.

If you're going to make a movie with the same title as a second-rate horror film, it should at least be as entertaining as that second-rate horror film.
April 21, 2006
A well-constructed and genuinely tense thriller.
April 21, 2006
A fairly by-the-numbers route through shootings, framings, diabolical plots and lots of dark-suited Secret Service types talking frantically into their shirt cuffs. (Watch closely, and you'll figure out pretty early who the bad seed is.)

If the movie had seized on the purely tacky melodramatic potential of the plot so far -- The Sentinel might have floated above its own silliness on bubbles of pure soap.
April 21, 2006
A half-hearted exercise in political paranoia,The Sentinel unravels its wrong-man scenario with business-like efficiency and an impressively jittery visual scheme, but falls far short of providing visceral or emotional thrills.
April 21, 2006
So, although some enjoyment can be had from watching The Sentinel with an uncritical eye, it remains a deeply flawed piece of mainstream action entertainment.

Rife with meaningless hugger-mugger, the movie is no In the Line of Fire.
