    There`s the right way, the wrong way, and the Army way. But there`s no way military investigator Paul Brenner (John Travolta) is going to participate in a cover-up when Fort MacCallum officials try to hide the motive behind the murder of a beautiful female officer.

    Travolta`s magnetic performance sparks this riveting thriller from the director of Con Air and the producer of The Hunt For Red October.

    Madeleine Stowe plays Brenner`s co-investigator and former flame. And James Cromwell, Timothy Hutton, Clarence Williams III and James Woods are among the suspects in this "steamy game of cat and mouse that will keep you guessing until the surprising, explosive ending".

    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A good suspense thriller with a decent plot and fine acting.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the picture is constantly clear (even the numerous night scenes are rendered nicely).
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. It`s not very explosive but the surrounds are used mainly for ambiance.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary, 20 minutes of a behind the scenes look and 4 deleted scenes (including an alternate ending) that do not add a thing to the main plot of the movie.
    Bottom line - a good thriller about the ugly aspect of military life.
