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

An Insult to all Naval Academy Grads!!
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a graduate of the Naval Academy. I knew that the Academy, and the Navy, had withheld their support of the movie due to the script. The depictions of academy life are so unrealistic that they are almost funny. While I realize that sometimes Hollywood needs to "juice up" some things, in this case the result is so very, very far from reality that it becomes almost unrecognizable. I am proud to be an Academy graduate, and cherish what it stands for -- I only wish there was some way they could have prevented the makers from using the name "Annapolis" or any inferred link to the Naval Academy.

All that aside, the plot is awful, and the acting is barely passable for professionals.

Don't waste your time or money!!
