Audience Reviews for The Presidio

A very average thriller that's pace fells all wrong.Connery is his usual gruff self but surprisingly Harmon's up to the challenge.of an average performance.For Harmon that's good.

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.
