Great potential ruined by terrible screenplay
“The Sentinel” is an average-at-best action drama that does not come remotely close to reaching its potential. The entire movie feels rushed, with random details about each character’s past thrown at you in a poorly-written screenplay. The revelation of the true bad guy in conspiracy films normally elicits at least some form of surprise or intrigue; instead, in “The Sentinel” the character is far too obvious and the scene reveals a tangential and unexplained back story that should instead be much more central to the plot.
The rush to cram details in every fleeting moment ruins this movie. For example, without spoiling the film, the culminating chase of the movie is ruined by a ridiculous proclamation of certain password to get by people; the ridiculousness of the situation takes away from what should be a tense finish.
This review is not meant to be overly disparaging; the film received 5/10 because it is a moderately entertaining summer movie and I did not regret going to see it. However, the skeleton plot seemed to be trying too hard and the characters were not well-utilized. Eva Longoria is very attractive though.
If you think this will be like “24” – forget about it…
Based on the star power of the cast and the success of Kiefer Sutherland’s TV series “24”, I was intrigued about the potential of this story. However, I quickly found myself debating about the merits of going to bed early or staying with the movie to the ending. This story had too many holes concerning the background of the various characters involved, especially the people who are conspiring to assassinate the President. No explanation is provided as to their motives. Further, the personal dynamics of the 2 principal Secret Service agents concerns something that happened in their past. Again, no substance is provided as to why this became an issue. Other romantic relationships that are playing out in the background do not unfold in any manner to show why they are even woven in to the situation or where they are going. This movie certainly had potential, considering the climate of current world politics. But, the creation of a number of sub-plots all taking their turn as the focal point of the story, will only create a number of hanging unanswered questions if you are a thinker. If you want a mindless, quasi-action story, then you may like this one! On a positive note, I found Eva Longoria’s performance to be quite good and a departure from the notorios “Gabrielle” on Desperate Housewives.
