There's never been a traitor in the United States Secret Service...until now. And the evidence points to Pete Garrison, one of the most trusted agents on the force. Now on the run, with two relentless federal investigators (Kiefer Sutherland and Eva Longoria) hot on his heels, Garrison must fight to clear his name and thwart an attempt on the President's life before it's too late!

Critics Consensus: The Sentinel starts off well enough but quickly wears thin with too many plot holes and conventional action sequences.

The story is as compelling as watching the ink dry on a superfluous UN treaty.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie includes several high-octane action sequences, with multiple murders by shooting, knifing, and explosion. The violence can be aggressive and several bodies appear bloodied (including a man with his throat cut). Two characters engage in an adulterous affair, revealed when a third party takes high-tech surveillance photos. Some mild sexual references and language.
