When a crusading chairperson of the military budget committee pressures the would be Navy secretary to begin full gender integration of the service, he offers the chance for a test case for a female trainee in a Navy SEAL-style training qualification. LT Jordan O’Neill is given the assignment, but no one expects her to succeed in an inhumanly punishing regime that has a standard 60% dropout rate for men. However, O’Neill is determined to prove everyone wrong.

Film Review

This movie really had a chance. It could've had Oscar nominations, been on the Top 250, could've really blown Demi Moore's career wide open.But I guess 5.5/10 is good enough, right? I mean, I still "enjoyed" the movie. It wasn't bad. But it could've been MUCH better.The problem with this film is that it's done (dare I say) kind of lazy. It seems like Ridley Scott was kind of going through the motions he does with movies, but this film is so unique and original. So the regular steps didn't really apply to it.I'm not saying Ridley Scott is a lazy director, I love his movies. But this movie just seemed to kind of flop.Another problem with this film is that its really slow moving. Which I usually don't have a problem with, but if it's gonna be slow paced, it should be much longer than 126 minutes. (Like the Godfather or Lord of the Rings).I liked this movie, but in a few years. A remake is in order.

The first thing that I heard about this movie was that the US Navy was opposed to making it and was very resistant to allowing Scott to use any of their facilities. I don't know what happened in the end but they seemed to be using some pretty hi-tech weaponry. One just doesn't walk down to a corner store and buy an Apache, though I thought the Apache was being used very ineffectively in the situation. Basically the Navy Seals were being pursued by a Lybian border patrol and they were on foot, so the Apache was firing missiles. I would have used the chain gun because it is much more effective against infantry than missiles, missiles are for tanks and other vehicles.G.I. Jane is a protest movie and it is about women in the military in front line jobs. The Navy Seals are said to be the best of the front line troops and thus we focus on this. The movie is much more political and deals a lot with the political ramifications of what is going on. The biggest protest here is that no…

Alright, alright, so the movie isn't perfect, the scenes are somewhat disjointed, some of the acting is stiff and the premise is slightly cliché — so? It's completely on point when it comes to sexism in society, and is a definite self-esteem booster for women all over America who aren't happy making less money in less important positions at work, or just being seen as cooks, cleaners and baby-makers at home.The storyline revolves around Lt. O'Neil (Demi Moore), a female intel officer in the U.S. Navy, chosen out of an array of female officers, to participate in CRT SEAL Training as a result of a female Texas Senator's (Anne Bancroft) feminist power-play for popularity. During her training, she faces off against the rough and tumble Command Master Chief Urgayle (Viggo Mortinson), intense training and a myriad of military men hell-bent on keeping the most intense military certification just for the good old boys.Now, I'm no Soldier Girl, certainly not…
