Solid, if unremarkable, murder mystery
3 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

Not a movie that will go down in history, but if you're looking for something to keep you interested for 90 minutes, you could do a lot worse than watching "Murder at the Presidio". It's a murder mystery set at a military base, and even though the script (based on a true story) gets too soap-opera-ish at times, the handling is solid in a somewhat old-fashioned way. Lou Diamond Phillips portrays the determination of his character to get to the truth convincingly (when someone asks him "You'll find the murderers, right?" and he responds "Yes. I will", you believe him), and Victoria Pratt is fit, sweet, sexy and beautiful - very close to my perception of the ideal woman (she may be somewhat miscast though - she looks too strong for what happens to her character at one point). The rest of the actors are mostly unknown, but they do the job. As does, in general, the film. Other reviewers have mentioned inaccuracies in the depiction of military life, but the majority of viewers will neither notice them, nor care. (**1/2)
