G.I. Jane

Directed by Ridley Scott
Starring Demi Moore, Viggo Mortensen

Image Entertainment, Inc. | January 13, 2004 | DVD

G.I. Jane is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

Demi Moore is fire and steel as a female soldier testing herself against the rigors of the Navy SEALs training program in Ridley Scott’s G.I. Jane. Jordan O’Neill, through a series of political maneuvers orchestrated by Senator Lillian DeHaven (Anne Bancroft), is the first woman eligible to try out for the SEALs. The program itself is uncommonly brutal, and her cruel Master Chief  (Viggo Mortenson) is especially hard on her. O’Neill perseveres and proves her right to serve in the elite force, only to see the same political shenanigans that got her there in the first place threaten her career. It’s one obstacle she may never overcome in this provocative and engaging film.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good Movie Before I watched the movie, I didnt know what to expect. I was thinking that it would be a typical overdone movie about how to make a point about Women, but it came just right. Before you complain, I like movies about strong females, but I just dont like movies trying to stuff your throat with a horrible black and white picture of the Gender Situation. This movie isnt really trying to stuff the viewer full of overdone women rights and portraying the stereotypical "Men are evil" picture. This movie is about being respected for who you are, regardless of sex or race. Its about both sides gaining mutual respect for each other, and seeing the good in others no matter the circumstances. Its also about a very strong woman who did everything to show the world that she could. Apart from that, it was a really good movie, no real dead points like many other movies. Having watched a lot of Moore`s movies lately, I still hold her performance in G.I Jane highest. Not only is she stunning to look at, but she is also a really strong character, with a rock solid will to do what she feel is right. Under the course of the movie she goes head to head against the apparently inhuman Master Chief(Excellent played by Viggo Mortensen), and the selfish Senator. Naturally things go bump in the night, and things happen that in the end causes you to either smile or cry, or both. Its a really touching movie, and it became one of my favorite movies, and I really adored Demi Moore after her role in this movie. Ridley Scott, producer of Thelma & Louise, 1492 Conquest of Paradise, Black Hawk Down and more, really shines in this excellent Military Movie. The Scenery and Photographing is sharp and at the same time, dirty and edgy. Really High Quality on both Picture and Sound, and an overall pleasant movie experience. A Minor Warning, please leave any logics outside the door. This movie is ment to be enjoyed for what it is, not to be broken down and critized to death. In the End, this movie gives you that really good feeling, and that`s what counts. Also, take note of the excellent soundtrack, and the two fantastic songs by The Pretenders. You`ll know them when you hear them.

Synopsis

In Ridley Scott's G.I. JANE, navy lieutenant Jordan O'Neil smashes the glass ceiling as the first female candidate for SEAL training, but her biggest battles are yet to come--brutal training regimens, persecution from her tough-as-nails master chief, and the growing realization that she is a pawn in the political games played by her chief supporter, a hardened female senator.
