The Sentinel (2006)
It passes the time, but 'In the line of Fire' it ain't

Warning: Spoilers
This is not a really bad film and it does role along at a reasonable pace but compared to the similar themed Clint Eastwood film 'In The Line of Fire' it does fall well short of the mark. Michael Douglas does look good for his age but you can never suspend disbelief long enough to think anything other, than that he is just way too old to be doing this kinda shite. The first half was OK, however when the action scenes start you just cant help thinking; he might be OK to get a job at B&Q but wrestling foreign hit-men to the ground may be a little to taxing even for this sprightly old pensioner...

The plot was a little bit like painting with numbers and the way in which he finds the terrorists was far too obvious to be credible, but all in all, if you have an hour and a half to kill and are looking for some easy entertainment then its worth a punt.
