Cast & Crew
Nobody's better than Michael Douglass as playing that guy who makes that big mistake, and then spends the rest of the movie trying to atone for it.
A well-constructed and genuinely tense thriller.
This is solid genre filmmaking that makes up for a lack of surprises with superior performances, excellent depictions of tradecraft (shades of CSI) and whiplash editing and pacing.
The story and style fit comfortably with today's TV and movie fashions: the cop procedural, kinetic editing, a pressure-cooker job rife with competition, and a countdown to possible disaster.
The Sentinel's brains may be mush, but its brawn is powered by superb stunts, high-tech gizmos and a potent sense of peril.
There are tense situations, daring escapes, shots fired, innocent civilians at risk, foreign terrorists. What else do you need?
