Storyline

Four rogue Secret Service agents, led by one named Baron, commandeer the house of war-widow Ellen. Her home is a prime sniper position for their plan to assassinate the President on his visit to the small town of Suddenly. The men fool the local cops except for one, Todd. A washed-up former war hero and deputy who is now the town drunk, Todd served with Ellen's deceased husband and has developed romantic feelings for her over the years. But she rebuffs his advances. Todd visits the house and is immediately suspicious of Baron, but no one will listen to the ravings of a drunk. Once Todd realizes what is going on, he manages to kill one of Baron's crew, but is captured. Now he and Ellen must find a way to stop Baron and his men before they kill the President.

Goofs

Early in the movie, when the fake secret service agents are hiding in the house, the real agents show up to check out the house and its occupants. They make a big deal out of looking at everything and getting everyone's name, but fail to notice the fake agents' vehicle, presumably with out-of-state license plates parked right in the driveway. The fake agents park the SUV in the garage before the real agents arrive. What seems to be a goof is that once the real agents leave, the SUV is shown parked back outside. The fake agents could have pulled it back out of the garage, but this is never seen. See more »

Quotes

Wheeler: They gave us one of those when they sent my brother's body back. My mother threw it away.
Barren: That's the problem, it doesn't mean the same thing any more. The great men and women of this country used to sacrifice their lives for this flag, no questions asked. No questions asked. If we're prepared to do anything we can to achieve our goals, then the American People can stand tall and proud once more. And America can regain its rightful place as the greatest country on earth.

A pretty generic and predictable movie about trying to stop an assassination. Not terrible but not amazing either. I say C+
6 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Today is a glorious day. Today I get to kill the President." Barren (Purcell) has become disillusioned with the President and his policies. He devises a plan that will help deal with his problem. Him and his accomplices pose as secret service agents and take up a position in a family's house that has the perfect sniping position. When a local cop (Liotta) shows up Barren's perfect plan starts to unravel. Uwe Boll's trademark seems to be lame movies with poor acting but decent action. This one had both. The movie itself isn't really that terrible but it is also fairly generic and predictable. There have been many movies about trying to stop a presidential assassin and I usually like movies with that plot. I did like this one too but it's not one of the better ones and I don't think I would watch this again. I have not seen the original with Frank Sinatra but I would guess that one is better. I could be wrong though. Overall, nothing terrible but nothing amazing either. I give it a C+
