I’ve known buildings that were easier to talk to than you.
The role of Provost Marshall at the Presidio was not real stretch for Sean Connery. He just had to continue the role he played in The Untouchables the year before. That is not to say that he wasn’t good, but it was a familiar type for him – tough cop and tough father.
This time he was protecting his daughter, played by Meg Ryan in a role that is familiar also, against a San Francisco police detective (and former MP) played by Mark Harmon.
Ryan gave that sweet role that she played in Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail. The cute smile and the girlish manner that we all love; not the raw role we saw in In the Cut.
I am a big fan of Harmon in NCIS and I always enjoyed his earlier roles. he does a good job here as well.
There was plenty of action: car chases, running through the streets of San Francisco, and a final gun battle that ends it all.
Preferably for Sean Connery fans
I haven’t seen “The Presidio” for about a decade, so watching it again recently after so many years was almost like watching it for the first time.
Although it’s definitely not a top class thriller, more of a low-key crime drama, the final twist in the tale makes it a decent picture. It’s got fantastic setting. Peter Hyams, who apart from directing the film also holds a spot as director of photography, shots exteriors stylishly. The slightly cold colours correspond well with Sean Connery’s characterisation as a strict man of principles.
In case of Connery it’s always as much about the acting as it is about the looks and he looks really good as an MP officer, mostly wearing regular uniforms, prefferably dark blue. If he hadn’t succeeded as 007 he would have definitely made a career as a character actor playing officers.
Mark Harmon takes over as an action man from Connery which is a nice change. The chase scene is quite impressive even by today’s standards, well done! On the other hand the fight scene with Connery is also well choreographed.
My only complain would be about Meg Ryan’s character. She seems too soft, too childish as for a person rised only by a father, who happens to be a rather tough guy, shy of showing emotions. Somehow her character doesn’t convince me at all.
In a nutshell: you’ll like the film if you like San Francsico and you’ll love it if you like Sean Connery. No more, no less.
