Tense, above-average save-the-day action-suspense potboiler.
22 October 2000 | by (Montgomery Village, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Gregory Harrison and Doug Savant return as U.S. President and outdoors adventure guide, respectively, in this sequel to "First Daughter" (1999 TV). Daryl Hannah appears as the take-charge head of the President's Secret Service detail and Savant's love interest. This time, it's the president who's the target of one or maybe more assassins, and again it will be the outdoorsman, not the Secret Service, who facilitates the save. Naturally.

Almost to excess, there is treachery all over the place---the details won't be divulged here---but then you have to grudgingly admire the reaching. Consequently, dead bodies abound as the action takes off early and proceeds to its suspenseful conclusion. Production values are first rate.

In the end, this potboiler is a better way to kill time than most of its ilk. Let's hope that our country never faces the situation depicted here.

-----

Watchers of technical details will wonder why a brand new aerial tramway has peeling paint; also, how you can have doors turning into splintered bullet-hole sieves without endangering participants in a Secret Service training exercise.
