Bland, interminable chase scenes take up so much of the story -- the hackneyed plot doesn't need much exposition -- that the sheer repetitiveness begins to amaze you.

Sadly, Sheen doesn't even look profound. Like a zombie who's spent too much time in the gym, he blunders heavily from one stunt to the next, his pursed lips conveying nothing more than pique.

The climactic assassination attempt... is so ridiculous there's only one real danger: that the president (and the audience) will laugh to death.

The film is so contemptuous of its audience it doesn't even bother to present a surface resemblance to reality.

When Charlie Sheen and Donald Sutherland appear in any movie, you should be wary. Their contracts seem to demand nothing but corny formula.

There isn't a brain in its empty little head, or in its assembly-line story, which is about how Charlie Sheen pauses occasionally between ludicrous action scenes, some of them ripped off from better films.

The plot, as it eventually unfolds, is so absurd and leads to such a silly climax that much of the audience's good will is burned away.

Here, we have stereotyped villains involved in a generic, high- level conspiracy, and a couple of equally-bland heroes on the run.

Some political junkies have an inordinate yen for movies that hop-skip around familiar Washington, D.C., locales and inside the bowels of a sinister White House. Members of this club may get some ephemeral amusement out of Shadow Conspiracy.
