Well, you can't forget Kiefer Sutherland in the cast list for obvious reasons. I too, thought this was going to be a theatrical release after seeing a trailer for it. Man, it would have been awesome in the theater. But, I'm sure it will still be very action packed on television as well, especially if you are watching it in high-def.
It is amazing the following that 24 has had over the years. It has been one of the most successful series that has been aired over the past decade. Many viewers started watching the show originally because Kiefer Sutherland brought such a strong presence to the show. But, of course they stayed for the the action and drama.
