Johnny Gallagher, a sergeant, is sent from Germany with a prisoner. The prisoner escapes from the men's room at National Airport and Hackman begins his search for his man. Enlisting the help of his ex-wife and various old friends, he finds that the prisoner is part of a plot by senior military personnel on both sides to kill a very high-ranking world figure in order to sabotage arms control talks.Written by

Although the story is set in various places around the world, nearly all of the film (including scenes set in Washington and Germany) were filmed in the area of director Andrew Davis' hometown of Chicago, Illinois. See more »
Reni Santoni is credited as a Chicago Police Lieutenant, but just before he arrests Gallagher, the rank on his cap piece is clearly that of "Captain". See more »
Why would someone want to take the place of a guy going to prison?
He gets into the country without a passport. He's here, nobody knows he's here.

This is a very good movie. It has a strong story (which most of the today's movies lack of) and a good relationship between characters. I have seen it a dozen times at least but I still find it rewarding to watch although I know it by heart. I think this should say something about the quality of the film. If you haven't seen it, do it. You won't regret it.
