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

some good ingredients but doesn't quite hit the mark
A senior member of the U.S. Senate Arms Committee is critical of the Navy's progressor lack thereofin gender neutrality, and wants the full integration of women into all branches of the service. Enter Lieutenant Jordan O'Neil, an intelligence officer handpicked as a test subject for the CRT, a rigorous SEAL training program with a 60% dropout rate for men in the military. Despite all the bureaucratic red tape in Washington, O'Neil is determined not to be shown special treatment and tries to progress through the unrelenting, nearly inhumane training regimen. The setup has potential, Moore is effective in the lead, and Mortensen has an especially intriguing role as her austere Master Chief, butdespite holding your attention for the most partit all builds to a conventional, contrived, and unsatisfying finale. Highly watchable, but not very compelling considering its promising premise. **½
