24 7.13 Day 7: 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM (2009)

With Jack and the President now under Juma’s control, the President is forced to read a statement Juma has prepared. The FBI are certain that the statement will end with the public execution of the President but the Vice President won’t authorise any action that could result in her death. Jack has a plan to give Bill a chance to rescue the situation but it will probabaly cost his life.

7/10

Last week’s impossible situation is dealt with satisfactorily thanks to director Brad Turner keeping the tension high and distracting us from asking too many questions. Kiefer Sutherland gets a rare emotional scene and, like seeing the back of Clint Eastwood cry in The Bridges of Madison County or Bond blub in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the effect is tellingly powerful. At long last, our big-bad is known to us but a snippet of his intentions don’t indicate what he is trying to achieve. However, what would be sublimely awesome is if the villainous Voight wanders out of his office and it turns out to be inside a volcano.

This 24 episode contains mild swear words and graphic broken glass throat-slitting, gun violence, gory and unpleasant scenes.
