The Sentinel is a 2006 thriller starring Michael Douglas as Pete Garrison, a veteran US Secret Service Agent who goes on the run when he's accused of being involved in a plot to assassinate the President. Kiefer Sutherland co-stars as David Breckinridge, the agent who heads up the task force assigned to find him and who has a complicated history with Garrison. The film's cast includes Eva Longoria and Kim Basinger and was directed by Clark Johnson (S.W.A.T.). The movie is based on the 2003 novel of the same name by former U.S. Secret Service agent Gerald Petievich (To Live and Die in L.A., Boiling Point).
The following weapons were used in the film The Sentinel:
SIG-Sauer P228 9mm pistols are used by US Secret Service agents, including Agents Pete Garrison (Michael Douglas), David Breckinridge (Kiefer Sutherland) and Jill Marin (Eva Longoria). When one of their agents is found dead, Breckinridge notices that the safety on the agent's SIG is still on, meaning that the agent wasn't ready to fire (since Secret Service agents are trained to draw and flick off the safety in one motion). Note: The standard sidearm of the United States Secret Service is the SIG-Sauer P229 chambered for .357 SIG rounds. The Secret Service did use the SIG-Sauer P228 sometime between the late 1980s and early 1990s, after switching from the .357 Smith & Wesson 66-2 revolver. However, since the movie takes place in 2006, the Service had already adopted the .357 SIG P229 by then. As a technical aside, neither the P228 or P229 have an external safety to be disengaged before firing.
