      “The Sentinel” is a thriller movie by Clark Johnson starring Michael Douglas, Keifer Sutherland, Eva Longoria and Kim Basinger. The film is based on the novel written by ex-Secret Service Agent Gerald Petievich.

      The movie is about a highly experienced Secret Service agent Pete Garisson(Michael Douglas) who has a affair with the First Lady Sarah Ballantine(Kim Bassinger).

      When agent Charlie Merriweather comes to


      know of a possible assassination attempt on President, he is murdered outside his house.

      While this investigation is underway, an informant reveals the fact that a mole is present in the Presdent’s security detail.

      All the agents are put through a polygraph test to identify the mole.

      Just before the test, Pete receives photographs showing his affair with the First Lady and asking ...


      • him to come to a coffee shop which is a hotspot for Columbian gangsters where nobody shows up.

        His appearance at the coffee club and his failure in the polygraph test make him the prime suspect when an assassination attempt is made on the President.

        When confronted about this by his ex-friend and agent David Breckinridge(Keifer Sutherland) and JillMarin(Eva Longoria), Pete manages to

        escape and plans to prove his innocence.

        Now, whether he manages to do so or not is the remaining story.

        The movie is quite enjoyable with a clean screenplay and some nice performances from the actors.

        The story is interesting if not completely engrossing.

        Michael Douglas carries off his role with ease.

        The other actors too chip in with good performances.

        A good watch for sure.
