Storyline

A man who has devoted himself to serving the leader of the free world is accused of plotting against him in this thriller. Pete Garrison (Michael Douglas) is a veteran Secret Service agent who has had a long and distinguished career helping protect the president of the United States. David Breckinridge (Kiefer Sutherland) is a fellow Secret Service agent who learned most of what he knows from Garrison and holds him in great respect. When intelligence data suggests that there is a mole within the Secret Service who is part of a plot to assassinate President Ballentine (David Rasche), Garrison launches an investigation to ferret out the rogue agent, and asks Breckinridge to go over the evidence with a fine-toothed comb. Breckinridge is shocked when the clues point to Garrison as the traitor within the Secret Service, but his sense of duty compels him to see that his former mentor is placed under arrest. Garrison eludes his captors and struggles to prove his innocence while tracking down...

Trivia

Production designer Andrew McAlpine's creations included an in-studio "Presidential Protective Division" (PPD) room, where the US Secret Service (USSS) agents do their office work. It entailed an elaborate set-up of dozens of computer screens with streamed images, desks, work stations, protective intelligence, and forensics reports, plus such details as mouse-pads, paper-weights, chairs, binders, plaques, photos, and flags.

Goofs

The President attends the G8 conference in Toronto. Delegates from Korea, China and India can clearly be seen but these nations are members of the G20 not the G8. See more »

This movie isn't great thing but it's very fun
18 August 2006 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

I thought that The sentinel was going to be a totally mediocre movie.When I finally saw it,I took a good surprise.The movie isn't great thing but it's fun and the action scenes are well done.This movie reminded me TV series like 24 or Alias.It's very similar to that series and it reminded me too,to the Wolfgang Petersen's thriller In the line of fire.If you're going to expect one of the most original and and one of the greatest thrillers in the history of movies,you will be disappointed.But if you go with moderate expectations,you will enjoy The sentinel.
