Summary: James Woods and John Travolta butt heads.
John Travolta plays a military investigative officer who is looking to find an explanation for a mysterious rape/murder of the local general's daughter. He quickly discovers more and more clues leading to a big conspiracy. Meanwhile he has to work an ex-girlfriend that he dated back when she was engaged to her husband that she's now divorcing; basically, the movie strives to drive home the point that there are no values in the Army. There's even the obligatory gay relationship and "don't ask, don't tell" scene. Go figure. Anyway Travolta is a fine actor and delivers a good performance, but aside from that it's really hard to be shocked or surprised by the conspiracy.
