Pretty decent for a TV movie
20 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK right off the bat we are not talking big budget best movie of the year stuff. But for slow TV night, or if there's nothing at the video store....I think you'll find this entertaining, although a bit transparent.

How this for a storyline? "A militia rebel group resurfaces with a vengeance to assassinate the President for the death of their brothers. Agent McGregor, now the head of the Secret Service tries to prevent attacks on the President's life, but when the President is shot and her husband Grant is kidnapped the stakes are raised and Alex realizes that she has now become a target as well." We've all been there, done that. So no big plus for original story line or big budget cast.

Give it a chance, better than much of whats on TV.
