Synopsis / Plot
Wylie Cooper (Dudley Moore) is an Army engineer who is convinced a new super tank he designed bears some faulty equipment. T.M. Landry (Eddie Murphy) is an Army soldier who tests Cooper's tank in a combat zone in Kuwait two years later. The action cuts back and forth between the past and present as Cooper rushes to fix the defective design before the tank is put into use, possibly saving the life of Landry--a man he will never even meet--sometime in the future.
