From the director of The Fugitive comes a brilliant, explosively entertaining action/thriller featuring powerful performances by Oscar winners Gene Hackman (Unforgiven) and Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black). Featuring a superb supporting cast that includes Dennis Franz ("N.Y.P.D. Blue"), Pam Grier (Jackie Brown) and John Heard (The Pelican Brief), this "top-notch thriller" (The Associated Press) really delivers! Sergeant Johnny Gallagher (Hackman) thinks he's been given a routine assignment: to escort a rebellious American soldier (Jones) from Europe to the U.S. for a military court martial. Gallgher soon learns, however, that the assignment is anything but routine, when he uncovers a terrifying military conspiracy. The clock is ticking down to a historic superpower summit, and Gallagher must stop the deadly plot before it's too late ...for him and his country.
