Seven years after Outland, Peter Hyams and Sean Connery reunited for this lazily scripted mystery thriller. It’s a partnership between director and star that didn’t work in Outland and definitely does not work here as Connery again appears to be sleepwalking his way through the film. It doesn’t help that the writers seem to accept Connery’s weaknesses as an actor, in this case accents, by ... read more

Since I have a weak spot for Sean Connery, Meg Ryan and Peter Hyams' work, I thought I should check this one out. To be honest, Peter Hyams is far from being a great director. I mean, I have seen a whole bunch of his movies and none of them was really that amazing. On the other hand, they were usually pretty fun to watch and his movies are definitely among my guilty pleasures. Anyway, coming back ... read more

“Since I have a weak spot for Sean Connery, Meg Ryan and Peter Hyams' work, I thought I should check this one out. To be honest, Peter Hyams is far from being a great director. I mean, I have seen a whole bunch of his movies and none of them was really that amazing. On the other hand, they were usually pretty fun to watch and his movies are definitely among my guilty pleasures. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it was basically a typical Hyams effort. Indeed, the script was pretty weak and pedestrian (especially everything involving Meg Ryan, her relationship with Harmon, with Connery was just pretty lame). It is like the chase at the beginning of the movie : on one hand, it was pretty badass and entertaining but, on the other hand, it was also honestly cheesy and unconvincing. Still” read more

"30.9. The word "avrage" has never fitted to a movie this well than with Presidio. Totally forgettable but still entertaining flick."

We are also made to believe that Connery and Jack Warden’s sergeant fought together in Vietnam, when there looks to be a difference of about thirty years between the two (In reality there’s only ten). Major flaws aside, the plot is half decent as a female MP from the Presidio Army base in San Francisco is shot dead during an in” read more
