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. Written by

If O'Neil was to be accepted into the Combined Reconnaissance Teams, she would need to have already become a certified SEAL which obviously wouldn't have been possible. Also, other characters talk about "Hell Week" which is solely a term used in the Navy SEALs. See more »
Master Chief John Urgayle:
SIXTY PERCENT of you will NOT pass this course! How do I know? Because that is an historical FACT! Now for the bad news, I always like to get *one quitter* on the first day, and until I do, that first day *does not end!*

Demi Moore shines with shiners and a bit more in an often brutal film about the first woman to enter the elite Navy SEALS training. While some scenes in the movie, such as the confusing end battle, seem a little out of place (exactly who were the trainees fighting?) the film moves along with startling pace and precision. Moore, who as everyone knows shaved her head for the role of Jordan O'Neill, is tough but feminine and internally vulnerable as a woman scorned by her male teammates. The most violent scene in the film comes during the survival exercise in which O'Neill is bashed around by the Master Chief. It's gruesome but necessary, and O'Neill earns her fellow trainees' support during the ordeal.
