When Regis retrieves the newspaper from the front porch, it is folded over. When he opens it up on the kitchen table to find the picture, the paper isn't folded anymore. Also, neither the newspaper nor the manila envelope show any signs of having been creased. See more »
You expect me to violate everything I was ever taught? I have duties.
Detective Harlan Regis:
Yeah, and your duties can send an innocent man to jail for the rest of his life. You wanna live with that.
Yeah, and I think you better leave.

Great performances by Ronny Cox and Wesley Snipes. A standard political thriller, made more interesting by Snipes' character's interest in history. He has made huge models of the DC area in his apartment, and uses them to solve a murder case that threatens to bring down the president. The gorgeous Diane Lane gives a creditable performance as a secret service agent. I liked the fact that the two main characters never have sex. Their relationship suggests it, and I kept waiting for the usual (and boring) bedroom scene. Sex is often used as a gimmick to hold interest in a boring plot and uninteresting characters. You either like the plot and this movie for what it is, or you don't.
