A barbaric rogue leader is planning a coup over the government is having children forcibly trained for his army.

Is it any good? - Kiefer Sutherland does an amazing job as always portraying Jack Bauer. Appearances from Robert Carlyle and Jon Voight just add to the viewing pleasure. Plenty of action, a lot of gun shots and a few explosions just to add some adrenaline. A must watch for any action fan and any fan of Kiefer Sutherland.
