Reel Reviews | The General’s Daughter

by Joe Barber

The Pillsbury Doughboy, oh, I’m sorry John Travolta stars in this entertaining but very graphic, murder mystery as an Army Intelligence investigator looking into the murder of the beautiful and accomplished daughter of a retiring four-star general.

A strong supporting cast, including Clarence Williams, III, and James Woods, keeps the pot boiling nicely, but Mr. Saturday Night Fever really ought to spend some quality time with Jenny Craig if he wants to join the action hero club. Still, the flick’s not bad.
