not bad for what it is...
14 March 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

when i watch a film i'm looking for a story that's well told... no matter the genre/subject matter. i try to steer clear of anything prowar. but despite all the categories i cannot truly empathize with(i'm straight) i STILL felt very connected to the characters...even though it was not an 'extraordinary' story. it was VERY well done... to the point of what DID open me up to the main character...the patchwork of characteristic dynamics became an artful quilt of humanity. and what true strength is all about. not that she could kick the ass of 'big guys' but that she'd only do it for the 'right' reasons... this movie wasn't out to PROVE anything... except that no one can strip you of your integrity if you're not ready to give it away... and i think the main character had that quality of strength before she ever started boot camp... it's not a GREAT film but it's a simple story very well told... worth seeing, esPECIALly as a rental...
