  • Apr 14, 2010
    San Francisco detective Jay Austin (Mark Harmon) is assigned to investigate the murder of a female MP at the 212-year-old Presidio army base in this crime drama. Jay must interview Lieutenant Colonel Caldwell (Sean Connery), his former commander from his military days. The two must overcome their past and present differences to track down the killer as they manage to stumble across a smuggling operation relating to the murder. Jay falls for Caldwell's pretty daughter Donna (Meg Ryan), who proves to be as forceful as her father. Highlights of the film are the chase scene through Chinatown and Connery's exceptional performance.

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

    This is a decent murder mystery thriller. The movie stars Sean Connery, Mark Harmon and Meg Ryan. The story is about a series of murders that have the local police force and the military police working together to figure this one out. Of course Connery and Harmon's characters have a history together that makes the invesigation that much more difficult. Solid performances all around by the cast. A good story with some plot twist and action sequences. I enjoyed this. Well worth a watch.

    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.
