Sean Connery and Mark Harmon go head to head as an Army provost marshal and a San Francisco cop who clash jurisdictions and styles in the investigation of an MP’s murder.

Naturally, there’s a backstory – they’d locked horns earlier when Connery was Harmon’s c.o. in the military – and a complication – Harmon gets involved with Connery’s frisky and equally willful daughter (Meg Ryan).

Tug-of-war for dominance among the trio provides the interest in an otherwise ordinary crime story, as Harmon and Connery end up working to piece together clues in a convoluted smuggling caper.

Along the way there are three very splashy action sequences – a car chase through the army base and the streets of S.F., a footrace through crowded Chinatown and the final, treacherous shootout in a water bottling plant that becomes as hairy as the swamps of ‘Nam.
