“Eagle is Gone”! which is code for ‘the president is dead’. Kiefer Sutherland plays Tom Kirkman, a low-level cabinet politician who suddenly becomes the President of the United States…talk about shortcuts. Also starring Maggie Q of Nikita fame, the person in charge of investigating who blew up Washington, DC and why. Not that it makes much sense because just about any despot in the world wants to blow up DC.
