| I've known buildings that were easier to talk to than you.
The role of Provost Marshall at the Presidio was not real stretch for Sean Connery. He just had to continue the role he played in The Untouchables the year before. That is not to say that he wasn't good, but it was a familiar type for him - tough cop and tough father.

This time he was protecting his daughter, played by Meg Ryan in a role that is familiar also, against a San Francisco police detective (and former MP) played by Mark Harmon.

Ryan gave that sweet role that she played in Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. The cute smile and the girlish manner that we all love; not the raw role we saw in In the Cut.

I am a big fan of Harmon in NCIS and I always enjoyed his earlier roles. he does a good job here as well.

There was plenty of action: car chases, running through the streets of San Francisco, and a final gun battle that ends it all.
