Profoundly stupid and childish at every single step along the way. This was born from a pretty stupid book that was also childish and simple-minded.The book was a total rip-off of An Officer and a Gentleman to the point that I was surprised the author didn't lift the "steers and queers" line.
The story is so ridden with clichés it's like they used a Micro Soft boilerplate model for the script.
Butch-sounding name: Mitch Rapp. Check. Grizzly old vet training the new punk kid. Check.
