Storyline

Jake Huard, from a shipbuilders family, promised his dying mother he'd make it to Annapolis Naval Academy. Thanks to tenaciously bugging a Congressman he's selected, despite dubious grades. Once inside Jake soon proves sub-standard academically. Constantly challenged to his limits, repeatedly made the 'over-cocky' reason for the entire class to suffer, Jake nearly quits, but after facing his utterly unsupportive father's gloating returns just in time. Stubborn Jake finds support with mates as well as Ali, his lover-to-be, and a discipline he may excel in: the 'brigade' boxing tournament, open to all ranks. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Despite the fact much of the action takes place after the Christmas break, it is almost always early autumn when the actors are outside. Given this is supposed to be in Maryland, the trees in the winter and early spring should be bare, not heavily covered with green and yellow leaves. See more »

A fantasy, and a bad one
24 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a graduate of the US Naval Academy, this movie was disappointing. It depicts the academy in a manner far from reality. Read the comments of the USNA Superintendent posted on IMDb and come to your own conclusion. The Academy offered its support to help make a film true to the ideals and environment of USNA but was turned down by the film makers.

If you are looking for a realistic portrayal of the US service academies, their values and mission, this movie misses the mark in a big way. If you're just looking for a good yarn, it won't satisfy in that regard either.

An accurate and compelling story could have been told with sets and context true to Annapolis and might just have been a money maker for the production company as well as a positive message for the Navy.

Unfortunate, as these times call for strong leadership and excellence in the role our military occupies on the world stage, and that story deserves accuracy, not Hollywood fantasy.
