Peter Hyams' strong direction and Connery's commanding presence make this handsome-looking action-thriller worth seeing.

Good thriller, but it suffers from '80s virus called the Mopes - it stutters on long, arduous sessions of depression while going absolutely nowhere.

One of Mark Harmon's best kept secrets -- It must've been grand working with Dean Connery

Fantastic murder mystery with police detective Mark Harmon and military provost marshal Sean Connery investigating a murder on military base. Forgot the plot and enjoy seeing Connery excel in a tailor-made role.

Cop investigates murder blah blah clashes with military ho hum falls for daughter yadda yadda. Harmon and Ryan make a dreary and unconvincing couple, and the cliched plot barely holds the attention. Peter Hyams is normally a reliable popcorn movie maker, but this is pretty feeble stuff.
