An action movie that takes place in the Pentagon. The protagonist (Costner) witnesses the girl he loves being murdered by his boss (Hackman), who is also having an affair with her. His boss entrusts him to frame someone else. Ah, corruption. Ah, politics. Ah, love affairs.
This movie is totally hokey and cheesy and melodramatic and 1987, but it is entertaining, engaging, action-y, and full of ridiculous sex. Also, Kevin Costner wears a tight uniform. Also, I want to have Kevin Costner's babies (not now, just in 1987!). A+ for sex and Kevin Costner's butt, C for a lame-o twist ending, and A for keeping me awake in my Postmodern Hollywood class.
