This was a really good movie. Michael Douglas does a pretty good job. It was kinda violent though. 10+

Awesome Action Thriller...On Par With THE FUGITIVE...

This is an awesome movie. Jam packed with action, thrills, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, this is one of the finest action thrillers I've seen. Michael Douglas plays a Secret Service agent falsely accused of plotting to assassinate the President. So, he's left trying to find the truth while evading his own men. Violence is the biggest issue in the movie. People are shot countless times, and most gunshots are fatal. Several dead bodies are seen, some with accompanying pools of blood. Several explosions as well. Language consists of several "d**n"s, "h**l"s, and some "s**t"s. Sex is minor: there is one very brief, non-graphic scene of passion between the First Lady and the Douglas character; their affair is a major plot point, resulting in Douglas's blackmail.

It's like the show 24, only in movie format

if you like the show 24, you will definately like this movie. it's really fast paced and exciting, and that probably suprises some people coming from a 15 year old girl talking about an action movie...but I really liked it, and if you like quick, action packed, CIA/FBI kinda movies, this is a must see!!!!

Very suspensful and fun.

this movie contains multiple shootings deaths. Not a lot of blood but lots of violence. This movie is very action packed and I recommend it to everyone 12+

It's 24 gone all wrong

This film has a great cast. Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland, and more compose an all star ensemble for the movie. What the movie lacks is a descent script and interesting characters. It’s a classic case of putting great actors in awful roles. The trailer promised interesting CIA tricks and hot chases. This movie delivers neither of those. What we get is a shoddy framing story that rambles and ends flat. You can see the ending coming from a mile away, which would be okay if you cared in the slightest about any of the characters. The movie contains bloodless violence and a scene of sensuality. Would I stop kids from seeing it, yes, but not because of the violence, because the film is god awful.
