A fascinating and bizarre movie
26 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an Aggie I can appreciate the glimpse of "Ole Army" that the film gives us. I saw footage of my dorm just years after it was built as well as other buildings I frequent. The first part is a pretty standard story. Cadet comes to A&M, Doesn't like it. Then, learns the meaning of Aggie spirit and excels. Quite suddenly however the plot goes from "Leave It To Beaver" to "Manchurian Canidate". I had trouble following the second half of the movie. In fact, the ending is so bizarre that you'll have to see it for your self to fully comprehend the weirdness. I always wondered why the school didn't make a big deal out of the film (like Notre Dame makes about Rudy)after seeing the film I understand why its relegated to a dusty corner of the bookstore. I have heard from an old professor at A&M, that when A&M administrators saw the completed movie, they were horrified and pulled more than a few strings to see that it wasn't widely released. Do your self a favor, skip the film and go to an Aggie football game instead.
