| The Sentinel (2006) |
I saw the above average political thriller, The Sentinel, starring two MRA (men's rights) gods, Kiefer Sutherland and Michael Douglas. If you thought Michael Douglas has lost a step physically or mentally, guess again.
No real gender issues to play on here, other than the fact that Douglas' character, Pete Garrison, is a serial adulterer. Garrison took a bullet for Reagan in 1981, and is now having an affair with the president's wife.
Kiefer Sutherland pretty much reprises his role from 24 as David Breckenridge, another agent who is bitter at Garrison for cheating with his wife. Garrison fails a lie detector test and is suspected to be a mole. He has to go on the run and employ all of his skills to stay one step ahead of the Secret Service and find out who is the real mole.
Not the best film, but more than enough to look at if you were a fan of "No Way Out", "In The Line of Fire", or "The Manchurian Candidate".
