Kiefer Sutherland stars as Jack Bauer, a counter-terrorist government agent. In one, very long day, he will see his family kidnapped, be involved in the assassination of a presidential candidate, and uncover a spy among his colleagues.
This series will take your breath away. Jack faces certain death every 15 minutes in a series of jaw-dropping scenarios that are both exhausting and exhilarating to watch. Production values are high, with frequent split screens following several subplots, music that enhances the terrifying story, and acting from a top-notch cast.
Sutherland is absolutely convincing as the fearless and endlessly-resourceful agent. He fills the screen with his charismatic presence and gives a riveting performance. Dennis Haysbert is perfect as the noble presidential candidate who must cope with public enemies and domestic disasters. And Sarah Clarke is unforgettable as Jack's ex-flame.
