Johnny Mack Brown,
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

Cole describes himself as a "soldier". A Marine or former Marine would NEVER describe himself or herself as a "soldier", because a "soldier" refers to someone in the Army. A Marine would describe himself or herself as a "Marine". See more »

The main problem with this film is the story behind it wasn't very good. Plus, it's nothing original. Boy from the wrong side of the tracks over comes obstacles to reach final goal. He must win against a bully, fall for a girl whom is really off limits, and gain the respect of all classmates. Plus, he must help the weakest student over come his obstacle. The weakest student is overweight and can't make the cut on the physical course. It is not realistic that a guy like that would get in because you have to pass a really hard physical test to even get into the naval academy.
Also, the film is more about boxing than anything else. Jake wants to show everyone he is really a good boxer and wants to get back at his officer, Cole, who has been tough on him and other classmates.
FINAL VERDICT: Not worth watching. Too long and too boring.
