My Advice: Wait and rent it

Rating: out of

Murder, intrigue, a plot most foul. And, if I have to tell the truth, at moments I felt a movie most foul.

After the murder of the daughter of an Army base commander with big political aspirations is discovered raped and then murdered on her military base, Warrant Office Paul Brenner (Travolta) is summoned upon to decode the mystery surrounding her death.

The south is hot and muggy, the cast was frequently muggy (or should I say mugging) and, with the exception of the talented Travolta and a marvelous turn by James Wood, I felt oddly let down. Although the plot built some marvelous twists and turns, and you were left guessing until the very end, some of this movie seemed to sloth and plod along a bit too slowly for my taste.

Let's use the old KISS system, shall we?? Who killed the General's Daughter? Um, who cares.
