Storyline

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 the US Navy's elite SEAL/C.R.T. selection program. 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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Has its moments but it isn't that great for me...
17 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This had the potential to be a very good movie- a talented director like Ridley Scott who has made some very good movies, a great actress like Annne Bancroft who has been in some outstanding films like The Elephant Man and the Miracle Worker and a sexy actress like Demi Moore who has been in some not so good movies but she has given some good performances. Why didn't it work so well and why do I consider it one of Scott's weaker movies?

Starting with the good things the film is assuredly directed by Ridley Scott. Also the cinematography, editing and visuals are very nice, and the soundtrack has some energy too. While I thought the acting was unexceptional on the most part, I thought that Viggo Mortensen gave a wonderfully gruff performance as Moore's poetry-reciting superior. Finally the training scenes are impressively co-ordinated.

However, the story is predictable and pretentious and the dialogue mostly is horribly clunky. Then there is some uneven pacing, a somewhat tedious final third and the film just goes on for 20 minutes too long. And while Demi Moore is in great shape and has some presence, shaved head and all, she sadly forgot about her acting skills to match. Screaming "suck my dick" is hardly exceptional acting Demi. The other acting is also unexceptional, Anne Bancroft in particular is a great actress(as I have said already) but overdoes it here.

Overall, G.I.Jane does have its moments but it isn't a great film in my eyes. An example of a film that is high-on-testosterone but somewhat low on brains, by all means it is watchable but this is a disappointment from Ridley Scott. 5/10 Bethany Cox
