During the opening credits there is a brief view of Gen. Campbell and Col. Fowler riding to the academy in a staff car, with Gen. Campbell sitting on the left side of the vehicle. This is incorrect military protocol. Correct protocol is for the lowest ranking officer (Col. Fowler) to enter the vehicle fist so that when they exit the vehicle, the highest ranking officer (Gen. Campbell) will exit first. Col. Fowler should be the one sitting on the left side. See more »

A beautiful army officer is murdered in compromising circumstances that the fort MacCallum officials would rather keep quite. John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe are the investigators into the murder, and it's seems that someone wants to keep the truth hidden.
Travolta and Stowe both capture the necessary elements of their characters and they are well supported by James Cromwell, Timothy Hutton, Clarence Williams II and James Woods.
This suspenseful mystery thriller delivers the disturbing truths of the story very well, it does have its flaws, but they are largely forgivable due to the captivating delivery and direction.
