Always saved your review before you posting it. Damn, I lost my previous review. The fact that I don't give a damn about this movie, really pissed me off. A cast of famous names and boring plot doesn't help this film a bit. Am I asking to too much for a good movie? Yes! I pay for the movies, don't I? I want to be entertained, so entertain me bastards!
Pete Garrison (Michael Douglas) is a Secret Service Agent whose duty is to protect the FIrst Lady Sarah Ballentine (Kim Basinger). Unbeknownst to everyone, they are having an affair. There is a plot to assasinate President Henry Ballentine (DavidRasche), and Pete is being framed for it. He is being chased by Agent David Breckinridge (Kiefer Sutherland) and agent Jill Marin (Eva Longoria). He has to find the traitor amongst them, cleaned his name, and save the president.
The story is so damn predictable, I could guess for the first ten minutes who the traitor is, whose the baddies, the hero is gonna make it, everyone is safe, happy ending. The end. Seriously, it could not be more blatant than this. What is this? They could make a better movie than this. Why even bother? The only reason why I wanted to watch this movie, was because Kiefer Sutherland is in it, and he's my hero. The movie itself is a copy of "24" and "The Fugitive", so if you already watched that show and that movie, I guarantee you; they are much better than this film. A copycat which is not even in the same league with others.
Kim Basinger as Mrs. President? Yeah, right. Then I am the Queen of England. Yes, she's a hot mama. But her role is so unreal, made me rolled my eyes several times. Eva Longoria's done nothing but looked pretty. What the hell she's doing in this movie? Nothing happened to her, beside she was talking a bit Spanish. It seems they just wanna put Eva Longoria there so those people who watched Desperate Housewives watch this film. Pbbbhhhtttt...! This film is nothing but a bunch of authorities running and yelling orders. I hate authorities. Everyone is acting badly. The camera movement is jerking around, like someone is playing basketball with the cameras. The only interesting plot is when Pete boinking the first lady, and that's it. Overall, it's so BORING. I'm wasting my time writing this.
Due to my hectic schedule, I will not be able to review all new movies every week. I apologize. I will however review some older movies from DVDs from time to time. Thank you for understanding.
