g i jane - endured a lot pain.
5 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a true grit movie, minus Wayne. It was Demi Moore this time. Some of the 'critics' complained she was too good looking. What did that have to do with anything? She handled the part mucho convincingly, as did Mortensen as her tormentor (not mentor). You knew they would eventually kiss and make up - well make up, anyway, but it was a long hard road traveled before they got there.

The road was brutal and I question if beating up Moore, as Mortensen did with much vigor, would be tolerated. But, she came out bruised and smiling. In return, she got a slight smile from Mortensen.

It was a fast moving moving picture with little let up in action, except for the scenes involving the brass and politicians who were as, if not more, vicious than the military. Anne Bancroft handled her role beautifully - a politician you love to hate.

Jim Caviezel had a small role in this flick. Later, of course, he portrayed Jesus. In that picture he had to eliminate cussing.

The star of that pic, of course, was Mel Gibson - noted anti-Semite, wife beater, and alcoholic. What a combination - Caviezel cusses, Gibson handles the rest. He and Charlie Sheen would make a good team - the Two Stooges.

Thinking about the training the SEALs undergo - makes Parris Island look like Wuss City. (My uncle was a D. I. there). As for me, training was a lot less rugged, in the Signal Corps, U. S. Army. I recall a corporal in charge of our unit who was chastised because one of the guys did something wrong and he made all of us do the manual of arms using our footlockers.

Anyway, for exciting entertainment and - by the way no sex scenes - "G. I. Jane" is hard to beat although, of course, Moore got 'beat' during half the movie, but she prevailed.

One final note. Were there no chaplains during SEAL training? I mean -- all that swearing. Sh-t!
