Jay Austin is now a civilian police detective. Colonel Caldwell was his commanding officer years before when he left the military police over a disagreement over the handling of a drunk driver. Now a series of murders that cross jurisdictions force them to work together again. That Austin is now dating Caldwell's daughter is not helping the relationship at all. Written by

The movie re-teamed Sean Connery
with Paramount Pictures, which Connery, just the previous year, had won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Academy Award for The Untouchables
(1987) for that studio. The Presidio
(1988) was Connery's next film after that movie, but this time, Connery had the lead role, and again was in the forces, not as a policeman this time, but as a military man. See more
When Jay Austin (Mark Harmon) chases Col. Lawrence through the alleys in Chinatown, they arrive at the street where Lawrence is struck and killed at the same time as the vehicle which did does this. The vehicle is shown driving at a high rate of speed down the street when it hits Lawrence and flees the scene.
This would only be possible if the car was tracking Lawrence down the alleyways, and exactly timed when it was going to hit him. However, Lawrence is shown struggling while running and was actually moving very slowly when he exited the alley into the street. There's no way that the car would have been in position to Lawrence.
