The General's Daughter


Army investigator John Travolta ploughs into military ethics while checking out the murder of a senior officer's daughter. Though he keeps the story at a pleasingly brisk forward-march, Simon West's bullish direction betrays his action allegiances - subtlety isn't his strength. There's too much crass flashback and Travolta's heroism is pushed at the expense of other, more talented players, especially the peerlessly slippery James Woods.
