Product Description

Amazon.ca

The titular piece of real estate is the San Francisco military base that starts at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge and sprawls back into the city itself, coexisting uneasily with Baghdad by the Bay. The two cultures clash when a murder at the Presidio is assigned to civilian police detective Mark Harmon. Harmon has an uncomfortable history with the base commander, Sean Connery, and that relationship doesn't get any less tense when he also becomes romantically entangled with Connery's daughter, Meg Ryan. Unfortunately, the script by Larry Ferguson is a stiff, which suits Harmon's acting style. Director Peter Hyams knows how to choreograph an action sequence, but he has to keep stopping so that Harmon can actually speak. Thankfully, Harmon has the always-interesting Connery and Ryan to interact with, but that's only a small saving grace. --Marshall Fine

5.0 out of 5 stars Meg Ryan and Sean Connery, wow! Nov. 21 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This has got to be one of my wife and I's favorites. This is the Meg Ryan I remember from my college days. Not the sappy sweet angel from "you've got mail" but the forcefull, erotic bad girl. Yet the Love scenes were handled tastefully and yet you are left with no doubt what happned. I rate the sexual tension in this one right up there with "the Big Easy". Oh and the overall plot is pretty good to.

2.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A BOMB OF A PICTURE. Feb. 23 2004
Format:DVD
i ACTUALLY FELL ASLEEP WHEN WATCHING THIS MOVIE, IT HAS ANOTHER DULL SCRIPT BY LARRY FERGUSON ( THE MAN SHOULD WRITE POLITICAL SPEECHS INSTEAD BECAUSE THAT'S ALSO A JOB WHERE IT DOES NOT TAKE ANY TALENT TO WRITE). MARK HAROM IS MISCAST IN THE ROLE, SO ARE JACK WARDEN AND MEG RYAN, AND EVEN SEAN CONNERY LOOKS STIFF IN THIS MOVIE. PETER HYAMS COULD NOT DO ANYTHING WITH THE MOVIE EXCEPT TRY TO SAVE IT IN THE EDITING ROOM BUT EVEN A DIRECTOR'S CUT HERE WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING, A MOVIE BETTER LEFT FORGOTTEN.
