Review of the Presidio starring Sean Connery and Mark Harmon.
This is a 2 star story with 5 star actors, so I rated it 3 stars.
The strength of this movie could be said to be that the characters played by Connery, the base commander and Harmon an X-MP under Connery and now cop were not very likeable. The friction and emotional tension between these characters is the heart movie. The murder mystery takes a back seat. Another side issue in addition to the murder was the love interest of Connery's daughter, Meg Ryan for Harmon and her friction with her dad.
Another friction in the story is that of a military base located near the USA's Saddom and Gamorrah known as San Francisco.
The movie bogs down and drifts as the characters treat each other inordinately poorly, and in a manner not justified by what we know. If the movie was based on a book that provided that information, it was not shared with the movie viewer. A good cast is wasted here and this is a 2.5 movie rounded up to 3 for its stars.
