Actor Kiefer Sutherland was pleased to collaborate with on-screen partner Eva Longoria. He said: "She has an incredible sense of focus. The character she plays betrays her personality and that's the mark of a great actor." See more »

Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland go down a well worn road in a good movie that really should have gone straight to cable
Michael Douglas is a secret service agent framed in a plot to kill the President of the US. Kiefer Sutherland is the agent on his tail.
Its not a bad movie its just been there done that with form over content film making. There is no real tension because the actors are in roles they've played a dozen or so times before (Sutherland in 24 each week)so you can pretty much walk them through whats happening.Thats the problem here, its all been done before, better.
The real question is: Do I really need to pay 10 bucks a head to see whats a essentially a big screen TV movie? I think not. As I said its not bad, its just not worth running out to the theater to see. Wait for cable where this movie really belongs.
