Mark Harmon plays a tough-guy cop who teams up with a cagey army officer (Sean Connery) to solve the murder of an M.P. in San Francisco’s Presidio. The good news, director Peter Hyams has infused the film’s action sequences with great camera work and sound.

The bad news: the story offers no surprises and the drama is unconvincing, despite good performances by Connery and Jack Warden. Meg Ryan is also along for the ride. Rated R.
