Propulsive thriller about an attempted assassination of the U.S. president (William Hurt) as he delivers an anti-terrorist speech in Spain, as seen from eight different perspectives including his Secret Service men (Dennis Quaid and Matthew Fox), an American tourist (Forest Whitaker), an American TV producer (Sigourney Weaver), a Spanish security officer (Eduardo Noriega), and myriad other characters on the scene during the shooting and the deadly bombings that immediately follow. Director Pete Travis demonstrates a great affinity for this kind of material, while the cast delivers committed performances. Plot improbabilities aside, the script is clever, while culminating in a heart-pounding car chase. Much action violence which, though intense, is not gruesome, frequent uses of the s-word uttered under duress and some mild profanity. Acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
